Missionary Update 12/15/2017

Merri Kirimati from the atolls of Kiribati! The Bible say is Matthew 2:10, “When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy”. The wisemen rejoiced in the birth of our Saviour, they rejoiced in the hope that he brought to all men, and they rejoiced through their worship of Him. Our hearts also rejoice this season in the hope that Christ’s birth has brought to our family and the people of Kiribati. We rejoice as we remember His marvelous works throughout this past year. We rejoice that our Saviour was born to die for all and we rejoice that He is alive in Heaven interceding for us. What joy fills our hearts as we remember the work of God in the hearts of so many. This year has brought much fruit and we rejoice in the New Birth of those who have realized that true hope comes only through trusting Christ and His finished work on Calvary. What joy it brings when you witness the truth of the Bible break through a religious heart who knew of our Saviour’s birth but had never put their trust in HIM alone. As parents, we greatly rejoice in the Salvation of our son, Bennett, this year. What a joy and peace to know that all of our children have now trusted in the Lord as their own personal Saviour. This season we rejoice in the work that Christ is doing in His church here. We rejoice to see Christians growing in their walk with Him. Our church theme this year has been, “Let us be followers of Jesus Christ”. We have seen these young Christians grow from just being saved to realizing and experiencing the victory that a life in Christ brings. As we hear them testify of God’s victory in their lives, joy fills our hearts. We rejoice with them as they are eagerly sharing this blessed hope with those they know and love also. This season, we also rejoice in God’s faithfulness to our family. We rejoice that God not only gave us Hope through Salvation, but he promises to never leave us nor forsake us. As we reflect over the past year, our hearts are overwhelmed by His care for us. Yes, being a missionary in a foreign country has many challenges. Yet, through each step of the way God is faithful, God brings peace, and God gives rejoicing even in the face of trials. Without Christ we would have no hope of Salvation and without Him we would have no strength to face tomorrow. We also rejoice that God has given us such a strong support group to partner with in reaching the people of Kiribati with this Hope that He so freely offers to them. Thank you for being a part. We also would like to thank you who remembered our family during this Christmas season and generously sent gifts. You are a blessing! When the wisemen saw that star they rejoiced in what it represented - our Saviour’s birth and the hope that He brought for all men. This Christmas we also have so much to rejoice over because without Christ’s birth there would be no hope. Without Christ’s birth there would be no joy. We wish each of you a Merry Christmas and may we all rejoice together in the Hope that we have in Christ! We look forward to seeing our Saviour face to face and worshipping Him together just as the wisemen did so many years ago. Until then, may we be busy sharing our Saviour with those we meet. May God bless you during this Christmas season and the upcoming New Year!! Merry Christmas from the Equator, Joel, Brooke, Daniel, Adelynn, and Bennett Daku
