End of Year

Hi, all! You should each receive a year-end update via snail mail in the next couple of weeks (let us know if you don’t and we'll send it to you immediately. We might not have your address!) but we wanted to take this chance to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and express our gratefulness for your involvement in our lives and the ministry here in Brazil. We feel blessed to be a part of what God is doing here and we hope you do too.

Some highlights from the past year: (we’ll give you a little more detail in the snail mail version!)

Family

• Demps turned 40!
• Kristy sold another manuscript that will be made into a picture book for children, her fourth sale so far! Her first book, ME WITH YOU, will be out in May 2009.
• Meg began piano lessons.
• Duncan did all his own tooth-pulling this year and starts tennis lessons this week.
• Kate started school!

Ministry

• We felt God’s presence during a tough, emotional refining year in our ministry
• God’s provision financially during tough economic times
• Forward movement for our church in defining vision and values
• Baptism service yesterday (The newest members of our church, each shared a poster with one word that describes how their life has changed since they came to Christ. The words were: loved, thanks, life, happiness, transformation, love, brokenness, freedom, hope, and humility.)
