Genesis 22:13-14, NKJV “Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide [Jehovah Jireh]; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.””

God provides! Time and time again we see God providing for our needs. Sometimes before we ask and sometimes after seasons of prayer. All the time in the smallest of things and all the time in the big things. Our support level is over 80%! Brian has been burdened to purchase a scissor lift (skyjack SJ3215) for the ministry. A newer one will cost around $12,000. We have already seen God provide $2500 toward this purchase through one of our supporting churches. Please prayerfully consider helping us buy this tool.

If you are following our YouTube Channel: TheKruegFam, you will see that the project at Baptist Bible Church, BBC, in Sparta, MI has been steadily moving forward. We Just finished spraying open cell spray foam insulation. Our next big tasks will be working on the HVAC ductwork and then we will be able to start the sheet rock work.  We would not be where we are at without the help of others. We are very thankful for the help from BBC and the other volunteers that have labored with us.

Amanda has finished her first semester of nursing school at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, MI. She is enjoying her classes. She has started a weekly Bible Study with one of her classmates. Luke, Nathanael, and Rebekah are participating in music classes and a homeschool co-op. Luke has started a part-time job with a local construction company. In January, Brenda will again be teaching a Chemistry class for Maranatha Baptist University. Pray for all of us as we seek to be lights in a dark world.
