Goodbye 2015!

This has been a busy year full of first time experiences.

It started with a bang in January, traveling ten hours from home to go to Bible school. And now we've completed an entire year of that, doing the second semester first, and the first semester last. Besides the great Bible training, and ministry opportunities, we also left with some really wonderful friends.
And although we didn't get to go to Italy over Christmas break, we were be able to be a part of a reorganized caroling group that preformed for the school's Winter Concert. So we still got to wear Victorian costumes!

Becca and I are in the middle of the front row.

Jumping back a bit to this summer, Becca and I worked at a camp for the first time. That was a really neat growing experience, and hopefully we'll be able to help out there again.

So, those were a few of the major things this year, but not all of them. God has used a lot of different experiences to grow us, and while it can be hard to see in the moment why something isn't going how we think it should, we can remember Romans 8:28.

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."

If we have accepted God's free gift of salvation, God doesn't promise it will be easy, but we can depend on the fact He does everything to fulfill His perfect plans of making us more like His precious Son, Jesus Christ.

It can be difficult to understand, and to be obedient when you can't see where God is leading you, but that's where faith comes in. We can depend on God through anything, and trust He is doing what's best. God made the ultimate sacrifice for us in sending His Son to earth to die for us, and when we trust in that, our thankfulness should fuel our actions towards God, and towards others.

I hope you aren't tired of Christmas music, because we'd like to share one more song with you about this season. We learned it at school, and did it with our mom for special music at our church last Sunday. 


  1. So fun reading your updates!!! And loved the song!!

  2. I'm so glad that you two were able to sing in Victorian costume even if you didn't get to visit Italy! :) Singing is a group is fun, but singing in a group IN costume is even more fun!


We love hearing comments and remarks, so leave us a note!
