We are excited that Elizabeth & Stephen are visiting from Albania, & Matthew from San Jose, to spend Christmas with us in Croatia. We’re sorry that Timothy & Jonathan can’t be with us but are very happy they can be with Todd’s parents in Oklahoma City.

Praise to God for stamina for Pam’s mom as she moved from Iowa to Texas, for Pam’s sister and family as they helped, and for the delightful packers and movers God provided! And for another sister in Texas caring for Pam’s dad with Alzheimer’s and helping Mom.

A note about personal Christmas gifts: Due to IRS regulations, personal Christmas gifts to us for which you do not want a tax-deductible receipt, should not be sent to our mission, Pioneers, but directly to us, either by mail c/o 15703 Allen Ave, Belton, MO 64012, or through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. This applies only for gifts intended to be used for us personally as a family for Christmas, not for our missionary support or projects. Thank you!
