Dear Friends and Family,
Well, the first month of 2019 is now history, and we have continued to see God faithful, and sufficient. Thank you, Lord!
We are holding on to this “roller-coaster ride” of life and trusting His grace for continued strength and hope for each day. We are seeing progress in Dad Heckman’s healing and strength. It is encouraging to see his strength being built up through Physical Therapy, and his willingness to work hard at it. We are praying for balance in how we use our days, and trying to maintain our responsibilities here at home, as well as have a part in caring for Mom and Dad Heckman every week. Please pray for us to have wisdom. Thanks much!
We see the word of God continuing to go out to unreached people groups. IT is exciting to see new believers in the Message of God’s Word, as they hear it in their own heart language for the first time. Many groups of people heard the Truth for the first time in 2018. We are thankful to have a part in that work through the work we do at the Ethnos360 Home offices. We handle much correspondence and many phone calls that help our missionaries stay in their locations, and able to continue on in their work without unnecessary interruptions. Thanks for partnering with us and allowing us to continue to serve here in Sanford. We know your sacrifice in prayer, finances, and moral support are what is keeping us here. We thank the Lord for you! For daily Mission updates see www.ethnos360.org.
Many in our family have events this month! We have anniversaries (Brett and Debby); Birthdays; Amy, Tim, Elena, and newest grandbaby, Abishai Burns should be arriving this month, to bring joy to Beka and Cody’s house! Of course, Valentine’s Day is coming, too.
Amy and Hector and their family are with us at least for another month or so, while they await Hector’s citizenship process. They are meeting with folks, and churches sharing their future ministry in Mexico with Ethnos360. If you would like to have them come and share with your small group or church, just let us know! They’d love to fit you in. They have a trip to Virginia planned in March. Little Elena is almost 1 and getting teeth (she has 5) and walking all over! She’s a doll!
Brett and Debby and family are doing well in Palm Bay. The church work is always good, and they are involved in home-schooling, potty training, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, and much hospitality. It’s always refreshing and fun to stop and visit them! The twins turned 3 this last month and a Trampoline for the family was a great birthday gift for them!!! They love it. Brett continues teaching English online to Chinese students.
David and Joice have had some car troubles lately, but are in process of getting things up and running. Tim has been facing some large issues in his life. Please hold him up in prayer as he navigates through some deep waters. Thank you.
We trust God, when things go crazy, we hold HIS hand and trust HIM. Thank you for remembering us in prayer!
