2021 Our New Year...in FOCUS.
Yesterday's craziness at the Capitol in DC didn't make this year feel much different from 2020, did it? We don't know about you, but we certainly didn't expect the tick-of-a-clock to miraculously change the climate here in the US or around the world.
Instead, as we prepare for a New Year...in FOCUS...we are more deliberately determined than ever to speak Jesus and Him crucified, risen, and in the business of transforming lives! We'll follow that path, no matter how slow, hard, rocky, or stretching it may be. We commit to keeping forward-focused, not looking back, taking what we learned in 2020 to inspire us to get the Word to those who need to hear, speaking the truth of the Word of God in kindness and boldness (never shirking from TRUTH), and welcoming each day as if today the Lord might return.
Once again, we are beginning to fill the calendar. As you pray for this month in FOCUS, here are a few events to keep in mind:
January 16th - a virtual, Zoom-based, Board of Director's Meeting. We will be setting goals for this new year, a budget, and discussing a variety of other business items crucial to running this ministry.
January 23-25 - Hope Community Church, Tucson, AZ.; and, still tentative, Pusch Ridge Christian School Chapel.
January 30-31 - Vail Christian Church, Vail, AZ; Bay will be bringing the message in the three church services.
For those who pray along with us, I want to remind you of the monthly calendar on our website, sacrificially prayed over and published by one of our board members, Mark Long. I print mine up each month, and stick it in my journal, using it as a spring board. Here is the link for those wanting to do the same: prayer calendar for January.
For now, in 2021...we will also continue to have an online/virtual presence; but, we are excited to have scheduled several speaking events at several churches, Christian school chapels, women's retreats, a pastor and wives leadership retreat, as well as MANY pastors and missionary (with spouse) get-aways here in Pagosa, AND (tentatively) a few overseas events... WAHOO!! Happy dance.
Thank you for always holding the rope (people who surround you with prayerful support and lift you up when sometimes it feels like you can't "do" on your own...)!
With love and great APPRECIATION!!!
Bay and Peg
