Serving the Lord, with you!
A little Christmas cheer with GG and Aunt Myra!  This unexpected visit was a treat for our whole family.

Reflecting on the good things from this past year has been a wonderful encouragement for our family.  We've celebrated our first anniversary serving in Hungary, Mike has made the transition to the role of HS principal, we have developed friendships, new and old, and our walks with the Lord have continued to grow as we seek to serve Him faithfully. 

We read in Hebrews 12
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Fawn and I want to thank you for being a cloud of witnesses surrounding us.  We feel the support of God's people in our ICSB community here in Hungary, as well as from all of you that support us through prayer, finance, and friendship.  The mission field has brought us many blessings this year and we are thankful for faithful Christians supporting us in different ways.

Financial Update

Many of you already know, but serving missionary families at ICSB does not come with a salary, so without people supporting us as missionaries it would not be possible for us to serve the Lord here in Budapest.
All of our needs have been met this year, but we have had to dip into reserve funds to continue with the budget set by ABWE.  We still have a reserve, but our deficit for the year was about $12,000.  It would be an encouragement to our family if you would consider a year end gift to help us make up this deficit.
Partner With Us!
Many ICSB families have a tradition of meeting at the ice rink near Heroes' Square on the day after Christmas.  This is the second year that the Southwells have participated.
Christmas  was special for our family once again.  Stockings and gifts were nice and time with family was a blessing.
