Happy New Year!!

Dear Family and Friends,

It seems these updates almost always begin with an apology for the fact that they are LATE! Well, I won't say it this time, cause you already know! Thinking my mom is going to quit reminding me...OH NO, PLEASE DON'T MOM STOP...I need your reminders!! YES, I DO!!

Most of you know that Mark suspended our schedule for most of November and December to be with his ailing mother. We were there for 5+ weeks trying to help out and just spend precious time with her. Mark turned 60 and we had a few surprises for his birthday, the biggest being his mom was able to come! She was pretty sick that day, but she came as did Brittney and her family, some other family members from the area, and Brother and Mrs Ron Kauffman from Russellville. Lisa and Brittney put a great video together with messages from family and friends that couldn't come for the surprise.

Arlen had worn himself out caring for mom 24-7. She has congestive heart failure and other issues, but when we left just before Christmas, Arlen was more rested and his pulled muscle had some time to heal up a bit. She has recently taken the steps for Hospice Care. Arlen is getting used to all the new changes, and the care from Hospice seems to be helping them both already. We thank you for all the prayers for us and especially his mom during this time. Please continue, cause we all need them! It was especially wonderful to be near Lisa and her family and get the opportunity to see them. We are glad to report that we were NOT involved in a tornado this year! Also, happy to report that Lisa's family just moved into their new place on their property! Looks really good from the pictures we have seen! God has been good! ALL the time!

It was very hard to leave Mark's mother and Arlen, however, it was a blessing to head up to Ft. Scott, Kansas and sing for Grace Baptist Tabernacle. We left Arkansas with temperatures climbing close to 70, but the time we got to Ft Scott it was in the 20's! Sunday morning it was a crispy, snowy -8 degrees!! Monday the roads were pretty good and we headed for Brittney's for Christmas. We had a great time there and then on to Texas with the Spain's and singing for Eagle Drive Baptist on January 1, 2017! 2017...Now that just seems impossible! On to El Paso from there and then here to Tucson. Missions Conference #1 will end tomorrow and then up to Phoenix. We LOVE Missions and Missionaries! Mark is very glad to be singing again and getting back into our schedule!

Thank you all once again for your prayers on our behalf! We can't even express what it means to us, and we are so very grateful and humbled. We look forward to seeing what God will do in the days ahead and may we all keep Christ first and let Him lead us in the way that HE wants us to go.

Unworthy but Willing,

James 3:17
