Happy New Year.
“Now listen, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to this city or that, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.’
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
Instead, you ought to say, ‘If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.’ As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” James 4:13-17
Please pray for us: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Please pray for siham’s mom Karimeh Kash. Just before Thanksgiving she had a massive heart attack, she is still recovering.
Please pray for siham, as it has been difficult being away during this time.
We pray that 2012 will truly be a NEW year for you.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come.”
God Bless YOU!
