God so loved the world...―
We want you to
know that our warmest thoughts are with you this Christmas. We
are very thankful for our many friends and family who have
faithfully prayed for us during this past year, as well as for
those who have also shared with us kind gifts in support of our
ministry with New Tribes Mission. We could not be in this work
Christ with us Immanuel! “And she (Mary) shall
bring forth a son, and thou shall call His name JESUS; for He
shall save His people from their sin.”
Matthew 1:21. He came to earth for us! All
of our sins have been forgiven through believing in Gods Son,
Jesus, who died on the cross in our place.
In this time of
world turmoil and financial instability, it is a wonderful
blessing to know that our Heavenly Father has promised in His
Word to take care of all our needs (Philippians 4:19).
The year 2008
has certainly been eventful for the McGhee family. In April,
our middle son, Jeffrey married a lovely Christian girl by the
name of Stefanie (Janusz), the daughter of good friends and
supporters of ours. Our granddaughter Kayla, now six,
“graduated” from Pre-Kindergarten on June 7. Also in June, Dad
Hansen celebrated his 90th birthday, followed by Mom
Hansen who then celebrated her 90th in November.
Both of them are doing remarkably well and are still able to
live in their own home in northern Wisconsin. In mid-November,
our daughter Sarah gave birth to our second granddaughter,
Kennidy Gail Battles. Sarah and family had just moved to
Midland, Texas, in the beginning of November to be with her
husband, David Battles, who had been working in Texas since May
2008. Tim, our oldest son keeps very busy working at Cherrydale
Baptist Church, located in Arlington, Virginia, and greatly
enjoys his ministry. David, our youngest, is in his last year
at UCF and he will be graduating in May 2009 with a Bachelors
Degree in Information Systems Technology.
Both of us are keeping well and are truly thankful to the Lord
for the ministry God has given us, serving in the Medical Plan
Office with New Tribes Mission. We have enclosed some photos of
our family. Thank you for joining us in giving thanks to our
Heavenly Father for His goodness to all of us this past year.
We pray that
you have a blessed and healthy New Year in 2009!
forward to His soon return,
& Linda McGhee
