What a joy it is for us to come to the close of this year and look back on the many ways we have experienced the presence of Christ with us. Though there have been moments where the tasks before us have seemed impossible, we look back and see clearly that God has not left us alone, but has gone before us, clearing the way, opening doors, and bringing friends to walk along side us.
The Year in Review
· We are so happy to report that the rural health clinic had its grand opening and will be attended by medical personnel beginning in January.
· The rainwater collection project has been more successful than we could have imagined and we have many more systems that must be installed before we leave for home assignment in June.
Home Assignment 2014 – Texas!
It was a productive and rewarding year and we are now looking forward to 2014 which also promises to be a big year for the Bolick family. We are scheduled to come back to the U.S. for home assignment beginning in July.
We would love to see as many of you as possible. We hope you can come to Green Lake in July for the grand celebration of International Ministries´ 200th anniversary!
If you would like for us to come and visit your church, please contact us in the coming weeks and we will begin to put together a travel schedule!
William is not far behind. He just finished third grade, is completely bilingual and enjoys riding his bike, art class, playing with friends and making us all laugh. He is looking forward to swimming lessons this summer and spending time camping with friends. We are happy that he just started participating in the fencing club with Jack. They will be practicing together this summer and look forward to competing together someday in Santiago.
We thank God every day for healthy, happy children. They are by far the greatest gift we have ever received.
So we will say goodbye for now. Your prayers accompany us, your gifts sustain our work and your confidence continues to inspire us. We pray God´s greatest blessings on you all during this holiday season and throughout the coming year.
With much love,
Barb and Dwight
