Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for God’s abundant goodness to our family over this past year. God has blessed our family in so many ways, and we praise Him for all the gifts He has given us!
The most precious blessing we received arrived at the beginning of the year in the middle of the worst snow storm of the winter. Hannah Grace Vruggink arrived at
3:27 AM on Friday, January 9th weighing 7 lbs. 14 oz. and measuring 19.5 in. long. She is 10-months-old now and has started to crawl end enjoys exploring her little world. She loves to smile and cuddle with anyone. She adores her siblings and graciously allows them to carry her around the house and involve her in all their adventures. Hannah is such a gift!
Our second most exciting announcement is that this summer we were officially appointed missionaries with ABWE! Over the past few months we have been meeting with churches and individuals to share our passion for training leaders in Asia! We truly believe that when Asian leaders are equipped with a strong theological foundation they will empower their churches to share the gospel and God’s kingdom will expand in Asia. We’re blessed that we already have 15 committed financial partners and 14% of our monthly committed support raised. We will be going on a trip to Singapore and Thailand January 20-30, 2016 to determine which city we will be based in while serving in Asia. Through God’s people Jehovah Jireh provided the funds for this trip in just six weeks! It has been amazing to see God providing for our family’s ministry!
We are so thankful for our amazing God who continues to bless us with the grace we need to serve Him. We hope you have a wonderful time of Thanksgiving with your family and friends this special week as we reflect on the many blessings He has given us and joyfully welcome the holiday season!
