We just want to wish you a blessaed Christmas and a healthy and fruitfull New Year. That the peace of God will fill your heart, mind and soul and his nearness will be very evident in your live.These last months we were directed to Jesaja 61, were the Lord is comending us to bring good tidings to the poor, to heal the broken hearted, to set the captic free, and to bring the binded into the light.


This Fall Tjebbo and me have been from home quite a bit.

Jeroen has been in Portland with Sandhya for 2 weeks, which was a blessed time for both of them. He wants to get his’ Masters’ in the US and applied for a university close by, where he even good talk with one of the professors. They had a good conversation and he seems to be a good candidate for a scholarship.
