Completions and Beginnings
View this email in your browser

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
- Lam 3:22-24
As we completed the year 2016 we enjoyed a much needed rest and time away together as a family. We visited with friends in Albertville, France and met with our former language partners over meals.  God gave us the opportunity to share of His grace and provision during our trials as well as how He is working and using His people to show His love in northern Togo.  We enjoyed a quiet and delightfully chilly Christmas celebration before returning to Togo to find Harmattan well under way.  Beginning the new year with visits to Togolese neighbors and friends, we were able to reconnect and wish them God's blessings in the coming year.  
We thank the Lord that construction of the studio is nearing completion and we are making progress in outfitting the station.  Praise God with us for a large gift to the Hope Radio ministry that allows us to begin in earnest the planning for personnel, production, and programming.

Our excitement over all God has done to bring the radio station to completion is somewhat diminished by the realization that our first term is coming to a close. While concentrating on completing well these first four years of overseas ministry, we must soon begin making plans for our year-long stateside ministry (furlough).  We are excited for what God will do through Hope Radio and are confident that His timing is always perfect and He will provide for and sustain His work here in northern Togo.  Please pray with us that God will help us prioritize and work diligently to follow His direction in our work and ministry.  

Praise the Lord with us:
