Dear praying friends and family,
First, we want to wish you a very happy New Year! Our family spent some time together thinking and talking over all that happened in 2012, and as we were talking we were amazed at all that God had accomplished. Some of the highlights: He faithfully took care of us as Olivia was sick and hospitalized, He directed us as we led a new leaders’ group, and He has been the definition of faithful with our church — 40 people received His gift of life and were baptized in the Jubilee church in 2012!
Also, I wanted to ask you to pray for us as we plan for this year. Over the next few days, the eldership of the Jubilee plant will be on a prayer and planning retreat for 2013. Please ask God to lead us as we consider this year’s teaching series, leadership and small group changes, next steps for the building campaign, and many more details. Ask for clarity of vision, quickness to listen, and a spirit of unity. We want to be faithful in our planning and in all things trust God’s perfect leadership.
Thank you for joining us in praising God for 2012 and asking Him to provide in 2013!
Un abrazo, –Luke
