Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2010

Image
Thank you for all your prayers and support for our family these past few months and the New Year to come.We are so thankful for God’s faithfulness.God is moving greatly in the church here.We had a beautiful Christmas service with over 170 people in attendance including all four churches.Julie and the girls are doing very well.All of us are healthy for the most part, thanks be to God.Callia (3 ½ years old going on 18) is continually excited about every church event.She began practicing with the worship team and sings with them at the end of service as people are leaving.Poema (1 1/2 years old) is running all over the house and church following her sister saying a handful of words.She just began to comprehend Christmas as she opened her presents.Julie and I are finding our place in things.One area that has been fun and rewarding is with the couple’s ministry.We are trying to think of creative ways to minister to the church couples.The day after Christmas we showed the popular movie, “Fi…

Missions: The Health of A Family

Hello All. Thanks for your prayers. Here is an update on our family. Chris. Is concluding his Bible College class “Great Men of the Bible” which was very encouraging. That particular class is always fun to teach because you can get very personal with each one you teach on. He also is excited about helping with the new “inreach” program in the main church which consists of coordinating visitation for new visitors and church members. Julie. Is amazing. There is no other way to put it. She parents 2 children, is part of the music ministry, evangelizes with the kids, and keeps her home. She was very happy to see one of her close friends and disciples at the church last week after not seeing her for 4 years. Callia. Is having a ball. She runs around the church, sings up on the stage occasionally with the worship team or Mom . Today she was “playing church”. She pretended to sing a solo and then asked her Dad to preach. She has really been growing in evangeli…

Team Dinner


Muli Bwanji (“Hello” in Zambian Local Language).It is so great to be writing you from Lusaka.It seems like it was only 2 weeks ago that we were in Baltimore. Oh wait, it was only 2 weeks ago.God has really done wonderful things for our family in order for us to be here.Currently we are staying with Pr. Renaldo & Family until we find a place of our own.We jumped right back into the missions schedule of “full time” ministry with the bonus of our 2 daughters in the mix now. They are adjusting well and feeling at home at the church here.They are very free with everyone.Callia is quick to make friends; in fact, anyone she meets she says they are her “best friend”.We just had our 5th baptism which always stirs us up as we see church members declaring to everyone their faith in Christ.We are preparing to welcome a group of guests coming for Pr Scibelli’s semi…

Why sit we here until we die?

Image
In 2 Kings 7 God gives an incredible story of 4 lepers who are in the impossible situation ofbeing surrounded by the enemy without food on the verge of death.They asked themselves the question, “Why sit we here until we die,” and then they walked into enemy territory either to their death or any good graces of their enemies.What they found was far greater; God had driven their enemies away for them to take the spoil.This is a lot like our lives.Everyday we venture into enemy territory with precious seed, but we find that the battle is already won and we just walk in a path prepared before us by God.
We feel that God has spoken to us to go back on the mission field after three years of being back in Baltimore. With two new team members, our two daughters, we are planning to return to Zambia with a goal to encourage the body there and visit surrounding countries for possible sites for future churches.
This past April I had the privilege of attending the first four-year graduation of Gre…
