Thank You from the Schierkolks

Dear WMF friends,
Thanksgiving greetings to you from the Mission House at the ARC.  We have been very blessed to have this place to stay these last months and are so grateful to the WMF for their help in making this house a home for all of us missionary travelers:)  This past year has been a time of instability, uncertainty and loss but it has also been a year filled with blessings we didn’t expect and joys we weren’t counting on!  Isn’t that just the way God loves His children?!  We were originally “planning” on getting back to Jerez in September but we are delaying that just a couple of months.  We had a couple of very good meetings with the members of the World Missions committee in September and together with our family we agreed that we could go back to Jerez .  We don’t have the tickets in hand yet but we are planning on flying back to Mexico the middle of January.  We’re grateful for the adjusted time table because we’ll be able to spend a couple weeks during the Christmas season with Barb’s mom; the first holiday season after her husband, Barb’s dad, passed away this summer.  We are deeply indebted to all of you who have held us up in prayer this year.  We’re grateful for the many expressions of concern and for your continued prayers.

God’s rich blessings,
Todd, Barb, Rachel, Megan and Kirstie Schierkolk

About paulajo58

The national and district organization of the women of the AFLC (Assoc. of Free Lutheran Congregations) is called the Women’s Missionary Federation (WMF). In 1962 the women of the AFLC banded together to help further the work of the church. The society they formed became the Women’s Missionary Federation, working at home and abroad to further love in the kingdom of God, to unite the women of the AFLC in missions and Christian education, and to organize missionary activities in the local congregations.
