Christmas 2006

"O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed s the man that trusteth in Him."
Psalm 34:8

"Commit thy way unto the Lord: trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:5

The Lord is just, merciful and good. Praise God-He never changes. In the midst of the most difficult and challenging situations, or in joyous memorable occasions, our faithful Lord is still in control, making not even one mistake! Our hope and trust must be in Jesus and in Him alone.

Peter, our youngest son, spent his summer in Fort Jackson, South Carolina, at boot camp for his Army National Guard Training. He graduated on September 1st, and returned home to finish his last year of homeschooling. In his "spare" time, he has been helping our friends build their home.

Naomi arrived home from college with great eagerness to continue learning homemaking skills! You have guessed it-she is being courted by Billy Miller, a Godly young man from Cascade, MD. They are seeking the Lord's face about serving the Lord as missionaries in China. No wedding date has been set as yet!

Andrew has been working full time in Gate City, VA at Commercial Electronics. His schooling is "on hold" until he can get his college expenses up to date.

Samuel finished his training in the Army National Guard this past summer, and is now helping Peter and our friends work on their house.

Timothy changed jobs this fall. He took the truck driving training to drive eighteen-wheelers, and is "now on the road".

Bruce continues to seek God's direction for work. After many applications and calls, nothing has opened up yet. However, we know that the Lord has not forsaken us, and will provide in His time and in His way.

Sue experienced some health problems with her throat for several weeks, but all is well with nothing seriously wrong. Praise God! She continues to homeschool Peter.

We rejoice in our friend Joan's salvation this past October. She had been asking questions and reading her Bible for several months, and God did a marvelous work in her life. Daily she is growing in the Lord.

Truly, Christ was born to die-that we might know Him.
