The Christmas season is here again- a time for giving, spending time with family, and counting our blessings. Luke 2:11 says, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” The difference that Christ’s birth made on this earth is undeniable. He had a tremendous purpose for being born in that Bethlehem stable: to give His life for us. We can now experience not only a physical birth, but a spiritual one as well. Christ had a purpose for living; what is yours and mine? O that we would surrender ourselves to His purpose!
GREAT NEWS FROM PERU!
We thank the Lord for a good report from our co-laborer Jeremy Hall of the Revelation drama that was held again this year in Arequipa. This is a walk-through drama that portrays the events of the end times, followed by a Gospel presentation. In total, they had 2,360 people attend and 499 professions of faith. Praise the Lord!
We are also praising the Lord that this should be my final health update. Following my November blood work, the doctor has given me a clean bill of health. Thank you so much for your prayers on my behalf. That being said, we look forward to visiting churches starting in January. We have meetings scheduled for every month up until October, and are planning to travel for the full year of 2012. We still have some openings, so if you would like us to come by your church, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-323-3425. We look forward to seeing many of you in the coming months.
We were excited to learn that Sara is expecting our 4th child due in May. We are so thankful for the three boys that the Lord has given us and look forward to welcoming a new little one into the family. The boys are praying for a sister this time, and we should find out the baby’s gender in January. Sara is doing well. Please pray for health and strength in these coming months.
★ Merry Christmas from our family to yours! ★
Rejoicing in the Newborn King,
Robert, Sara, Josiah, Caleb, & Joshua Stover
