Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We trust each of you are blessed in this celebration season with a renewed sense of the depth of God's grace beaming from a manger in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. Glory to God in the Highest!

It is with great joy and satisfaction that we announce with this letter the completion of our first DVD in the series, Comforting Words of Grace. This is a tool for volunteers and staff of long-term care facilities to use in ministry of God's comfort and grace to their elderly residents. This is a presentation of a summary of the Gospel, favorite hymns and the Word of God in Scripture. The DVDs use as visual background original videos of floral settings, water fountains, etc., which we have compiled over the past several months.

This ongoing project has great potential in the encouragement to the faith of God's little children who face the unique trials of living in a nursing home. On the second Thursday of December we will be showing the Comforting Words of Grace to the Hampton Roads Activity Professionals Association. With this presentation we have been asked to give instructions on how to use it in nursing home ministry.

To have such a powerful resource to further God's Kingdom in the hearts of His saints is a great privilege and a blessing which we ask you to lift up in prayer. This milestone in the production of this video series has required a great investment in time and money. It will demand continued resources as we pursue its completion in the upcoming year. We would appreciate your help in interceding with the Lord of the Harvest for this project.

If you know someone in long-term care with whom you would like to share a copy of this first DVD, just give us a call, email, or write and we will be glad to supply you as our resources allow.

Our hymn booklets, Favorite Hymns of Grace and Christian Christmas Carols (with their accompaniment CDs) remain in great demand. Many thanks to Jeff Hadsell for his help in production and much thanks to you, our donors, who make the purchase of necessary supplies possible.

The past year has been an exciting one in many ways. This has been accentuated by the adjustments made to our finances due to our leaving the pastorate at Good Shepherd Community Chapel back in March. God has proven Himself faithful again as we continue to seek His grace to obey His guidance in this ministry and in our lives. We are sure you can relate to the fact that it is never a dull moment when following the Lord!

Again, we thank each of you who support us with your prayers and your contributions. And, again, we pray God's richest blessings in your circumstances and in your relationships with others.

Love, In Christ,

Jerry and Dar
