Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
For Chris and I, this is the time of year when we gather around family and loved ones and reflect on the Lord’s goodness. We are so thankful for His many blessings and we count you as one of those blessings. It’s also a time to look at the year past and be reminded of God’s faithfulness to His little ones.
2013 has been a tremendous year for New Life. Our orphanage and nutrition center continues to stand in the gap for the malnourished and fatherless. Since our last update in October we’ve taken in many new children and several have been adopted. David and Veronica are celebrating with their new families this Christmas. 26 children have found their forever families in 2013.
Our ministry in Cristo Rey continues feeding kids and building homes for the poor. Our emphasis has changed however. We are partnering with a church where the focus is on discipleship. On average over 100 children attend discipleship and receive a hot plate of food. We are continuing to build homes in Cristo Rey. We have built 141 homes in total and 42 of those homes were built this year.
None of this could have been possible without the grace of the Lord and your amazing support. As we turn our focus to 2014 and new projects on the horizon, we pray that you will continue to stand in the gap with us. We love each and everyone of you and pray that God blesses your family as you celebrate the birthday of our Savior.
