MERRY CHRISTMAS!

FROM BILL AND GRACE

DECEMBER 2016

Kyle and Margaret increase Harding tribe with twins!

L-R William 3 yrs, Elizabeth Anne, Meri Mae  2 months, Maggie Grace 20 months and St. Bernard Stella. All anticipating Christmas!

As you can imagine, Kyle and Margaret have their hands full and sleep is a rare thing at this point for them. Their jobs in Charlotte have given them generous maternity and paternity leave to ease this massive transition. They are doing a super job. This makes 12 grands for us! 

Kara in Charlotte, North Carolina

What a joy to have Kara close by! She has been the nanny for William and Maggie Grace and now has the added responsibility of the twins. She also works with Grace inspiring healthy living around the world with Juice Plus+.

Ryan and Melissa (L-R Emery, Selah, Gavin) Gilbert, AZ

Ryan, Melissa and family moved from Colorado Springs to the Phoenix, Arizona area where Melissa grew up. Melissa has a wonderful gift of writing and speaking to various women's groups. Ryan has been involved in the solar industry. The girls have their artistic flares and Gavin is loving rugby.

We recently had the privilege to spend two and a half weeks with Drew and Janna and family plus Janna's parents, Peter and Gail Barram. Oh, what a wonderful time we had! The "Fab Five" are thriving in that context. Janna is busy transporting the girls to school and all their extra-curricular activities and building relationships with the parents of  all their friends. Drew, as founder and director, continues to thrive leading a ministry called Senai Global. www.senaiglobal.org

Nothing like it !!


As we hold these precious twin infants, joy fills our hearts. We are reminded of baby Jesus who was born in Bethlehem that first Christmas day. Yes, nothing like it! We celebrate with you this redemptive incarnation that led to the cross and then the resurrection of Jesus for our hope and salvation.
As we celebrate His birth, we want to express our gratitude to you for the gift of your friendship. Thank you for making it possible or us to share this good news here, in Ethiopia and beyond.

Bill and Grace
