Dec 31
Hi yall!
It is the end of an amazing year of ministry, a terrible year of family struggle and health problems and so now we come to the New year full of optimism that our Father is still in control, that He is still (strangely) showing us love and mercy and that He still has plans for us in ministry and family.

On a good note – we have had some wonderful times of sharing the Gospel with Mormon families and missionaries, Bahai scholars and wiccan sweet but fruity folks!  As well as a host of others.  We have been into the belly of the beast at the Scientology headquarters in Clearwater, Fl and to Mormon visitor centers and New Age fairs.  The Parliament of world religions was our highlight – just in the sheer number of people we were able to talk to – generally in a really friendly yet thought provoking manner.  We have had several private meetings with atheist students and New age attorneys.

On another good note – even though we both had several surgical procedures done to us this past year (or AT us!) most of them have worked out well.  I have lost over 120 lbs. and finally have my tooth implant done.  The foot surgery has not done the trick yet. Terri has had several shots in her knees, but I still think (and the surgeon agrees!) that knee replacement surgery is heading her way.
Most of the kids are doing great.  You know through Facebook probably that we had a terrible time this past year with Joey, but he seems to have turned around quite a bit and spends a lot of time with us now.  Jon is heading for prison – sentencing is in three weeks.  Please pray for both of them.  They need to the Lord!  Johanna is married, Rose is pregnant, and Scott and Savanna just had baby Carmina!  Shawn and Kelly and girls are moving back to Colorado in April.  Everyone else I think is doing really well.

Every year it seems like the Lord is interested in building my lame faith when it comes to mission support. The last year and a half it seemed like every six months or so we were out of money again.  This December is much worse.  We are probably at 60% of where we normally are at the end of the year. Please pray for us in this regard and if the Lord calls you to please consider supporting us now and throughout the year.  We have several mission trips in mind, the Mormon Pageant, Scientology headquarters again, and this is our year to teach and share the Gospel in the Philippines.  We also hope Lord willing to go back to Israel this fall!  I still email occasionally with the Jewish family we were blessed to spend so much time in their home last mission trip! If you are not aware – for Christians like us to be invited into their home is a major miracle!  Most sort-of orthodox Jews are convinced Christians hate them and want them dead so we were thrilled to do even a small part of dismissing that lie and loving them to share the Messiah Yeshua with them!
So lots of things are going on.  Please pray about the support and the people we talked to this past year and the people we hope to talk to this year.
Lord bless yall
Bill and Terri
