Update January 3

Bible Promise Greetings with this first 2010 update report. The Bible verse?

Isaiah 58.11 - " Jehovah will guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in dry places, and make strong thy bones; and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not."

I like Francis Havergal's "Another Year is Dawning"
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.
Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.
Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above.
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.

I have (by God's grace) begun my 77th year and Linda and I are beginning our 44th year in Mexico this week. We moved into Mexico the first week of January, 1967. Four small children and $90 a month support promised. God said "Go" and we did. He has been FAITHFUL through all these years to meet our every need for family and ministry!

God spoke a word to me yesterday about this year. "Dramatic!" Dramatic answers to prayers (some of long standing) and dramatic manifestations of His Power, Love and Glory.

Linda and I pray together daily, and in those prayers remember that one of the great blessings God has given to us is YOU...and others like you - who pray for us and encourage us in so many ways.
May you have a dramatically blessed and exciting year ahead, walking with Him in deep fellowship, clear revelation and great impact on others for the glory of God. May it be a year of health, joy and peace in serving Him and others.

God bless you. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

In Him,
Roger & Linda
