Greetings From Colombia!
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life…" John 5:24a
We are thankful both of our immediate families could make it to our wedding in PA to celebrate!
Despite 2020 being an interesting and hard year in some ways, it also has been a great year to celebrate God’s faithfulness, protection, loving-kindness, and so much more. Recently, Peter has been preaching from the book of John and discussing the 7 signs mentioned within the precious book. Towards the end, John writes that there’s not even enough room to record all that Jesus had done, but all was done so that we may believe. During this confusing year and from here on out, may it be that we are continually amazed by the wonders of God and share this hope with others so that they may believe as well!
On a personal level, we continue to adjust to a fun married life full of ministry as well. Although daily we have many who knock on our door, we have had time to set up our home, enjoy one another’s company, and give God the glory for all that He has done in our lives. Thank you for your prayers as we continue our new married life and life here in Colombia.
As we combine our newsletters, there may be some names of people to catch up on, so if you have any questions, please let us know! We are thankful for you all and it was a joy to see many of you this past year.
For the Kingdom, Peter and Jamie :)
