Merry Christmas!

We hope you all are enjoying this season of anticipation and celebration of our Savior's birth. We are looking forward to a visit from Tonya's parents and celebrating Christmas with family for our first time since moving here.

Overall we are doing well. We have to move again and have experienced many obstacles in finding a house. At this moment, we have five days to be out of the one in which we are currently living. We have found a house we are hoping to move into on Saturday, but nothing is settled yet. Will you please pray? This has been so stressful.

Here are our other prayer requests:

-That we will draw near to the Lord during this season of celebration.
-Tonya's first court date is set for January 23rd and we have a lawyer. This will be the other party's chance to present their case. Ours will be presented next time.
-That the love of Jesus will shine through us as we share with the children in our various ministries the story of God becoming human in order to dwell among us and bear our sins.

We met a young guy named Carlos in a café a couple months back who mentioned that he wanted to learn English and Ben has since been meeting with him.
We had high attendance at Skatechurch this fall, which was super encouraging. Right now our church is having the walls finished so we aren't able to use the space. This was disappointing for us but we are hopeful that we can begin using the church again in January.
A fellow missionary told me (Tonya) about a girl's home here in La Vega where girls are placed when their home situation has been deemed unsafe. I began helping on a weekly basis about a month after we arrived back in country. It has been a joy but also heartbreaking at times.
Thanks for all your support all year long! We are so grateful for the continuing generosity toward our family and ministry here in the Dominican Republic.
Merry Christmas from all of us!
Ben, Tonya, Jolie, Ivan, Samuel and Melody
