Newsletter - January 2020


Greetings to all our family and friends!

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been away from you all for over six months. We’ve missed your friendship and your fellowship. You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

The past six months have been very full. We’ve worked hard to get the family settled in our new home. We have made some new friends have a new church that we are attending out here, and have settled into a new routine. It’s been a lot of change for our little family of six. Though some of the changes have been hard, we know that all of them are good because they are from our loving Father.

Seminary has been going very well. Jeremy completed his fall semester at Westminster in December. It was an intense semester full of a lot of reading, writing, and Greek and Hebrew, and more reading.

He did very well in all of his classes and we both learned so much. In addition to taking Greek and Hebrew, Jeremy took Apologetics, Pastoral Ministry, New Testament, and a Theology class.

Even being familiar with all the topics, we were surprised at how difficult and challenging the courses were.

The kids and I have stayed busy filling our day with lots of playtimes. We go to church for Bible Study and activities on Mondays and Fridays. We all are involved in a Home Group and enjoy attending church and Sunday school together.

We live next to a nice Christian family, who have three young girls. I’ve also been blessed to be a part of two different Bible Studies specifically for pastor’s wives.

Through all the changes we’ve encountered these past six months, we’ve come to learn that we have a lot of changing that we need to do.

Through Jeremy’s schooling, we have been convicted and encouraged to live more godly lives.

We are so very thankful to God that we are at a school that loves God’s Word and doesn’t just want their future pastors to know it; they want them to live by it and even exemplify it.

It is our hope that God would continue to grow us and conform us more into the image of His Son. We are so thankful for all He is doing, and for the changes, He is making in us.

We love and miss you. Thank you for your prayers and your love.

 

In Him,

Charissa
