Wait… what? Yes, that’s right. I am writing to you from Zambia where I moved in October this year to assume the role of Headmaster of the Rafiki School.
Have you put 2016 to rest? Are you looking into this new year with hope? I asked many of the children on this first day of a new year, “Why do we say ‘Happy New Year’?”.
These words above were written as an exhortation to Israel to worship and trust the Lord, but the verse certainly is a good reminder for each of us to look back in our own lives to see God’s wonderful and personal goodness. And January is always a good time to do this, isn’t it?
May your Christmas celebrations bring you joy and hope, and may you be a blessing to others as you have blessed us with your prayers, encouragements, and support as we observe our twelfth Christmas in Africa.
This morning is one of those beautiful, glorious mornings like we have in Nebraska in early May. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and the grass is so green, I have to keep reminding myself that it is February.
