Psalm 72:3-5; 11-13. “He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.” For He will deliver the needy when he cries, The poor also, and him who has no helper. He will spare the poor and needy, And will save the souls of the needy."

If you have ever wondered were you could give to a ministry that directly supports the needs of people and that lifts up the Lord Jesus, DLEA does just that all year long. Thank you to those who pray and give to glorify our Lord and draw souls to Him. Please continue to pray often for me. May you have a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!
Thanks be to God, some of God’s people stepped up in a big way and we were able to give generous Christmas baskets to dozens of very needy people. While I was not there to purchase the items and prepare the baskets myself Max and our staff did the work for us. It was a blessing that the widows, widowers and special needs families were grateful to receive.
Our staff sent photos of the purchase, preparation and distribution of the gifts. The baskets were full of items that poor people could only hope to have for their special holiday.

Dear Family in the Lord,
Greetings And great blessings to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus! I pray you are well and that you and everyone you love had a most blessed Christmas. Our family was very blessed. We had a house full of people with Anita’s parents, our children, their children and “step friends” filling the house! Thanks be to God we had more food than we needed for days and days. Our God is so wonderful to us!
At the beginning of month last year, I had to have a valve in my heart replaced due to an episode in November. I wrote, “It will require 5-7 days in the hospital” and then I would be home by Christmas and back to work in January. As many of you well know, things can change in a heartbeat! I spent most of December and January in the hospital and suffered a stroke during the first surgery. From February thru the end of May I was in and out of the hospital after several surgeries from a staph infection, almost dying several times in ICU. Through months of rehabilitation, wound care and doctor visits, by God’s grace and your prayers we are still in the fight. As Paul said in Acts 20:24, “But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
Now for the first time in over a year, I am planning to go back to Guatemala January 15!! Anita and I will take a short trip and see the people we love so much. They have prayed daily for God to allow me to return and see their faces. What joy we will have! We will have a big celebration with all of the Ministries of DLEA. It is because of all of you who have so faithfully and intensely prayed for me that I am able to make these plans. It seems has been forever. Please pray that God will grant us safely, strength, protection and health as we go.
My sister whom I have not seen in a long time, except in the hospital, is bringing us to Florida for a few days at her home. I cannot wait to see her gain. Love, time and family is more important than this world has to offer! Let’s love like we never have before this year, what do you say? THANK YOU for loving me, my family and this ministry. Have a Blessed and Happy New Year! May God bless you greatly! Please pray often for me.
