Dear Ministry Partners, Family and Friends,
On behalf of my missionary daughter, Larissa, other family and I, thank you so much for your giving in 2016. Your help is very precious and deeply appreciated. May God continue to richly bless you and multiply your giving back to you mightily and in timely ways. As Psalm 138:8 says, He perfects that which concerns us. Also, thank you so much for your prayers, they are greatly appreciated and we have been helped much in this season of our lives as a family, both at home and in my ministry travels. Additionally, Larissa and Life Impact International, whom she serves with in Thailand and Myanmar /Burma, continue to thrive in their ministry of caring for children rescued from trafficking.
Larissa was with us for Christmas this year. This was her first Christmas with us since 2009, when she moved full time to the mission field at age 19. There were 11 of us together for Christmas, including family from Oklahoma, California and Yolanda’s mom from Louisiana. By God’s amazing grace, it was a nice time.
I am scheduled to travel back to Ethiopia, to serve with Victory Bible College, in early April. It will be my first overseas trip in about a year. Your financial and prayer support for this trip would be greatly appreciated. I can receive donations towards the trip and regular ministry support through our Giving Online page, or you can send via regular USPS mail to the address on our Contact page – Larissa can too.
Also, thank you for your patience with us. We discovered checks from some of you that had not been deposited from late 2015 and early 2016 and contributions that had not been acknowledged. Yolanda really wanted to keep up with this for us, even with her health challenges and we did not have the heart to say no. My daughter, Loriel is helping me with this. We have had some catching up to do, but it has gone really well. Anyway, we love and appreciate your loving support and friendship and it means a lot to us. We are trusting God that 2017 will be your best year ever.
Multiplied Grace & Peace,
Rev. Larry Brown
