Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
2019, what a year it has been. I am overwhelmed at all that God has done this year. There are landmark years in all of our lives that we can look back and say, "that year was quite the year." Well, 2019 is one of those years for me. I do not believe we will quickly forget all that God has done in our life this past year. It has not all necessarily been a smoothe year for us. It has been a tough year, tougher in some ways than any other perhaps, however, what will make it easy to remember and look back on is our Father's faithfulness through this year.
I absolutely can not even start to tell you how much your words of encouragement, your prayers, and your financial support mean to Amanda and I. We have seen the mighty, sovereign hand of God move in our lives so much this past year. Some of you probably have no idea how God has used you to minister to us in the exact ways needed in our lives for us to know that He is in control of every one of our circumstances. The knowledge of this brings about great Joy and Peace in environments and situations that would otherwise be void of those things.
We pray for you and your families that God would establish your plans to serve Him in 2020. We are going into this next season with great expectation for the things of God to be of more value and desire in our hearts than anything else.
Until He comes again...
Matt, Amanda, Jacob, Leah, and Noah
