crosstoworldThank You and Merry Christmas from the Miller Family in Japan!

Dear Laveen Baptist Church Family,

Merry Christmas from the Miller family here in Misawa, Japan. God is so faithful, and Christmas is one of our greatest reminders of His faithfulness.

I wanted to write to all of you briefly to thank you for all your love, prayers, support and assistance in this past year. They have been an encouragement to our hearts, and a reminder that the church is a universal body, united in love for Christ and working toward the common goal of making disciples of all nations. We especially want to thank the missions committee for purchasing the children’s curriculum for CBC, which has been a huge blessing for the church out here.

As we come to the end of our first calendar year out here in Japan we are reminded of God’s faithfulness. We have faced many trials, but God has brought us through them all. We know that we will face many more in the years to come, but we know that God will remain faithful, and we know that not one word of all the good promises that God has made will fail, all will come to pass. (Joshua 21:45)

“Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored…” 2 Thessalonians 3:1
Merry Christmas,

Matthew and Diana Miller [hr]
