Hello, I just wanted to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement. John and i really appreciate it. The best gift we got was a couple of days ago, when our friend Curt, from the BGC, wrote the following,
“Dear John and Mel,
It gives me a great deal of joy to write and let you know that all the votes have been counted, it was close… no, no, that’s not true at all. The vote was unanimous! Congratulations on your appointment as BGC missionaries. I’m excited that God has led you to serve him in Belize. While there’s still a lot of work to do to actually get from here to there, God is able to make it all happen. It will be fun to see how He accomplishes it.
In our mission lingo, you are now officially a missionary appointee. You’ll be an appointee until you have your funds raised and preparation complete. Once you get on the field you’re just a plain ol’ missionary, so enjoy the coming months.”
PTL!!!! “The Lord has been so good to us, and we are filled with joy.” May your Christmas be filled with joy. Folks, enjoy today. Soak in the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and of your family. I know we will, hopefully next year we will be celebrating in Belize. I love you all.
