January Update

We trust that you are well—that you enjoyed a blessed holiday season. We are well and want to mention briefly a few things for your prayers and thanksgiving.

Christmas Trip To Texas

We had a great time on our recent trip to Texas. We spent about 10 days with our family in Lubbock and Amherst. It was Ceci’s first Christmas with family so it was especially fun to see her experience family Christmas with her grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. She really wanted to see snow and make a snowman. Though it wasn’t much, there was about an inch one of the mornings a day or two after Christmas. Natali made a tiny 1-inch snowman on the hood of our car. Though Chadd preached and taught the Sunday we were in Amherst, the time was mainly about hanging out with family, eating good food, and enjoying our loved ones there. We thank God for this special blessing!

We’ve been back here for just over a week and are encouraged with what we have heard and seen from our brothers and sisters here. We anticipate God’s work in and through this group of churches in the weeks and months to come. We continue to pray to the Lord of the Harvest that more workers will be raised up for and from the harvest in Mexico!

Upcoming Partners’ Meeting

We want to remind you of the upcoming Guadalajara Multiple Church Planting Project Partners’ Meeting which will take place the weekend of February 8-11, 2008. We ask you to pray that it will be a useful time to consider and celebrate our partnership in God’s mission.

Please remember the deadline for registration is January 15, 2008. Let me know if you have any questions. If you would like to participate in this time but have not contacted us, it is not too late! We still have plenty of room and can get you all the information you need.

As always, we thank God for you and your partnership with us and the mission in Guadalajara. We pray God’s guidance and blessings for you in these days.

With love,

Chadd, Nancy, Morgan, Natali and Ceci Schroeder
