Dear Friends in Christ,
As a New Year approaches, we pause to reflect on God’s goodness to the Andersons in 2011.
The highlight for our family was Bev’s wedding in August. It was a day full of love and joy. Mike & Bev are off to a good start. They live in Toronto about 25 minutes from us. Both continue their university education while working part-time.
Dave just turned 22, and lives with us here in Mississauga. He continues to pursue a career in film production, with a particular interest in script writing.
Beulah continues her faithful service at Cawthra Gardens Long-Term Care Facility. She often goes the extra mile, because this is much more than a job… it’s an opportunity to minister to the residents, families, and fellow-staff.
Doug continues his role as International Director of Emmanuel International, coordinating EI’s activity in 11 countries. There are many challenges – but each challenge brings opportunities. Please pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for Doug and EI in the New Year.
Christmas this year for us was overshadowed by the typhoon and flood last week in our home area of the Philippines (Dumaguete and nearby provinces). Doug was busy over Christmas helping EI launch a program to help churches in the devastated area assist 500 of the neediest families. Perhaps before the end of the year, you might consider participating. Visit eiphilippines.com for more info. Thank you.
From our family to yours …
May the coming New Year be full of God’s blessing and joy.
With our love,
Doug & Beulah (& Dave & Bev & Mike)
