￼“Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,” 1 Chronicles 16:11-12 (NKJV)
As we look back on 2015, we are praising God for enabling us to do His will. We started the year off with 13% support and ended the year very close to 30%. Join us as we praise God for a 17% increase in support! The pre-field ministry is hard and this verse reminds us that we need to seek the Lord and His strength. When we get discouraged, God reminds us of what He has done and we sit back in amazement. For example, in January our family was hit hard with sickness. Rebekah was pretty close to being hospitalized and our plans to randomly visit churches was put on hold.
A friend reminded us that of all of the churches we have visited in the last 2 and 1⁄2 years, there has only been one time we have not gone together as a family. That is truly a marvelous work of the Lord. Join us as we praise God that He allows us to do this ministry as a family!
We really enjoyed the opportunities we had with friends and family this month. Brian was able to do some late muzzleloader deer hunting with his dad. The kids had fun at a friend’s ice skating birthday party. And toward the end January, we finally celebrated Christmas with Brenda’s mom. We also took the kids to their first high school basketball game. They asked a lot of questions and learned a lot about the sport. This month we shared our ministry with Lockridge Baptist Church in Lockridge, IA. We also enjoyed revisiting a couple of churches. We are praising the Lord for two new individual supporters this month! As we look to the future, we have a desire to reach 50% this year. To reach this goal, it would take 24 financial partners at $50 a month.
Fulfilling the great commission together,
Brian, Brenda, Amanda, Luke, Nathanael and Rebekah Krueger
