Greetings to all of you,

I’m sure all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is about to get started for everyone (if it hasn’t already begun), so I’ll keep this newsletter short.  There’s only one subject we want to address in this letter, so let’s get started.

We will be holding our annual New Year’s Eve soup supper and Gospel sing again this year.  This is our third year, and it will once again be held in the Christian Life Center at the Mexico Church of God Holiness.  The church’s address is 1215 W. Boulevard Street in Mexico, MO.  The soup supper will start……,sorry, I needed to leave for a while, and I will address the reason I left as a second (unexpected) subject after I finish this one.

Now, back to New Year’s Eve.  The soup supper will start at 5:00 pm, with soup and drinks provided.  Everyone is welcome to bring finger foods to share.  The singing starts at 6:00.  We will be singing, as well as our special musical guests for the evening: Heirs Together from Republic, MO; Gary Freeland from Panora, IA; and Hillsong Duet from Galesburg, IL.  Admission is free, but free will donations will be accepted and appreciated.

I will be listing contact numbers for motels in Mexico at the end of this letter, as well as including a link to a PDF of the poster for the event.  Feel free to copy and print some or post to social media if you’d like to help us get the word out.  We’d love to see you there for a great evening and a God honoring way of starting the New Year!

Now for the unexpected second subject.  I needed to leave because I received a call from Cheryl.  She was involved in a vehicle accident in Columbia,MO.  A lady making a left turn ran into Cheryl as she was going through the intersection.  Cheryl is very sore, but so far is not showing signs of any other injuries.  We are very thankful God protected her from anything more serious.  As old as our car is I’m sure it is totaled, so please pray that we will be able to find an affordable replacement in a timely manner.

Thank you for your prayers for Cheryl and our vehicle situation, and we look forward to seeing many of you on New Year’s Eve!
