Well another year has almost past. 2012 came with great expectations and much has happened in the world in these past 12 months. Social media, Facebook and Twitter etc have become a phenomenon with multi-millions of people posting and tweeting. We even had tweets back from the Mars Rover.
America had an election and retained its President and that pleased some and worried others. Other things have happened around the world in many places, all pointing to the soon return of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Here at home in the Campbell household, we have had a great year. The Lord has been blessing us as He promised to do. At Family Faith Centre we have raised [at this time] $17,000 of the needed $55,000 for the children in Philippines. We thank all those who gave and believe we shall soon have the rest that is needed to finish the project.
Yesterday, being Christmas Day, all our family came to be with us for the afternoon. Our three adult children and their spouses with our nine grandchildren; [who age from 21 years right down to almost 3 years] and one extra girlfriend of the oldest grandson. So we had 18 come for lunch. One of our sons-in-law prepared most of the meal and was helped by others who provided various treats. Everything was a great success. My job was to make sure everyone got a gift; and no I didn't wear a Santa hat even though everyone thinks I look like him.
Elizabeth and I really enjoyed the day with the family, and we are thankful to The Lord for them all. We had paused earlier in the day to think about those in less fortunate conditions than ourselves and prayed for the soldiers around the world who are away from their families this year.
We have much to be thankful for and give God the praise and honour for what He has done.
Our prayer for you for 2013 is this: That you be abundantly blessed and debt free in two-0-one-three.
In Jesus' Name
