I love this time of year. It's really neat to experience Christmas through my children who are now 11 and 9 years old. How quickly time goes by. Lots has been happening since I last updated. Here are a couple of things worth mentioning and praying for.
In summer I met a young man that expressed to me a desire for me to mentor/disciple him. Starting in fall, we started to meet regularly and do life together so to speak. This young man who is 19 years old has been diagnosed with cancer. He has had one surgery already but the cancer has spread to his abdomen. I ask that you would pray for this young man. I think his spirits are good considering, and he is seeking the Lord, but I do ask that you would lift him up to Jesus.
Mason McCarty, a 19 year old Blades player who came to our banquet to share what God has been doing in his life, has since been injured as he tore his MCL and is out for 8-10 weeks. I ask that you would pray for him. He was the teams leading scorer. Please pray that he would not become too discouraged and that he would be able to return sooner rather than later.

I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas from my family, Barb, Alex, and Danika. We are so thankful for many of you who support us through prayer and finances. I hope you encounter Jesus in a new and exciting way this Christmas season.
