We leave in the morning to go to the beach project. Whew! Is it already here? We're definitely feeling the time crunch. In addition to planning and preparing for the beach project, we're loading up supplies for two weeks worth of vacation bible school for the children on the team.

Holiday Wishes
We hope your Christmas and New Year's celebrations were full of family, fun and faith. We enjoyed family time on the 24th and a team celebration with the kids exchanging gifts on the 25th. We were reminded of how blessed we are to be surrounded by such good friends and to co-labor with our supporters around the world.

Beach Project
Pray for the 70 students going on beach project as well as the staff. Pray that we will hold tightly to the great treasure we have in Jesus and that each of us will grow in our knowledge and intimacy with God. Pray especially for the students going who are just beginning to investigate the truth of the gospel. With faith we want to believe that God will draw them to Himself and into the freedom of faith and repentance. Pray also for our safe travel, over the river and through the woods, through the mountains, on bumpy, poorly marked, pothole-filled roads. :)

We are grateful beyond words for how each of you has sacrificed this year to keep us here investing in the lives of college students. The benefits are eternal-- for them, for us, and for you. Thank you from the bottom of out hearts.

Demps, Kristy, Meg, Duncan and Kate Dempsey
