Dear Family and Friends,
Merry Christmas! I know everybody says this, but we truly mean it. I can’t believe Christmas is here! We are having fun decorating our house and trying to guide our kids in having the right spirit during this time; although it has been pretty hot in Santa Cruz.
For me, this is the hardest time of the year. It makes me feel homesick—missing family, friends, places, food...snow... Anyway we just want to tell all of you that we miss you horribly and think and pray for you a lot. And most of all thank you for all of your support, thank you for your prayers, your thoughts, thank you for being our friend even though thousands of miles and almost another year separate us.
Please keep sending us your e-mails and cards. We love them. If you have changed your email address, or are not getting our email updates, please drop us an email so we can add you to our contact list. Thank you so much for your confidence and support of our ministry both economically and through prayers. We hope that during this season of giving you will remember Bolivia and our ministry with the orphanages and water well drilling. We know the Lord will multiply his blessings on you, so we want to encourage you to keep supporting us. If you have not done so already, please consider making a monthly pledge of support for the coming year.
This Christmas we will have three celebrations. One with our family and our friend and worker Carlos (before Nathaniel goes to KY). The next one will be with the kids and staff of the home Talita Cumi and the last one will be with our EFCCM mission family. We hope and pray you will also be surrounded by loved ones and mostly by the Spirit of our Lord himself; that this special time will be a reminder of God’s unexplainable and limitless love for you. If I could hug you right now, I would. Times like this just get all my emotions going! We love you very much. If possible please send us a photograph of you and your family so that our children know who we are talking about and so that we can continue praying for you. We just would love having you on our fridge!
With lots of love,
Daniel and Vanessa Beams
