Year-End Blessings

Dear Friends and Family,

We hope you’ve had a joyous season celebrating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the reason He came to earthto save sinners by His perfect life, substitutionary death, and glorious resurrection. It has been a wonderful time for us to spend making special memories with our families in Tucson. We couldn't ask for better families to spend our Christmas break with.
We also were blessed to connect with our home church for two Sundays. David had the privilege of preaching one Sunday morning on Ephesians 2:4-7 and we were also given the opportunity to give a presentation about our ministry plans for Madagascar for a Sunday night service.
We also had the honor of meeting with a few of the elders from our home church in Tucson. We greatly appreciate their prayers, encouragement, and support. It has been humbling to see God putting it on the hearts of His people both near and far to begin supporting us (even as far as Canada!). What a joy it has been to share with our family and friends about our ministry plans!
We are looking forward to the new year with eager expectation for what the Lord will accomplish. It will be so exciting to complete seminary in May and begin a new season. We don't know exactly what the Lord has in store for us in 2018, but we are putting our full confidence in our Sovereign God Who has ordained all things.
If you have been prayerfully considering helping us "move it move it" to Madagascar, we encourage you to visit our site ( where you can give a tax-deductible gift for the 2017 tax year. Please commit to pray for us regularly as we have many logistics to work out in 2018. We need to daily depend on God and continually trust Him for each step we take.

Have a wonderful rest of 2017 and a Happy New Year!
David, Ashley, Isabella, Lydia, Anna, and Clara
