It is a pleasure to write to you all at the beginning of another new year. We hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and new year. No doubt many of us have a lot of things to remember from last year, and maybe there are some things we would rather forget about. Sometimes life can be hard, we sometimes even feel it to be unfair, so It is a wonderful thing the Lord has given to us; the times and the seasons, the days, the months and the years. We need new days, new years, new beginnings to get our minds and bodies focused on the future. To stop and ponder the year passed and see how the Lord has provided, led, taught, corrected and blessed us. It’s good to look back and see the wonderful works of the Lord. I hope you can, and that you can see God at work in your life, transforming you and conforming you to the image of His dear Son.
As we, as a family, look back over 2017, we can say it was a hard year for us. At some points we had never been so low wondering how we would even get through the day, thinking we have just got it wrong and should just go home to the UK. But the Lord never left us in this condition and has never forsaken us.
