Happy 2020, sweet friends! It’s hard to believe that this year is here. B + I were just talking about how we don’t feel like 40ish year olds, yet here we are – hahaha…

We enjoyed an amazing two-week Christmas break together + now we’re all back to the grind. It’s been a little bit of a struggle getting back into the swing of things, but Friday is so close & we are here for it!

A big thank you to our First Church group and for Don Durham + Mark Tschirhart for coming out in December: Don + Mark completed several work projects on the property, and we’re so thankful.

Together with First Church, we hosted a Christmas weekend for the community including a Christmas party, meals together, a worship service, games, and a children’s gift giveaway. It was a great time together!

From December 27-29, we were able to take our girls + 18 students to a winter camp in Hesperus, CO. Thank you to our partners who helped offset the camp cost for our youth, traveling expenses for our group, etc.!

We are in the process of finalizing our Playground Fundraiser, and we’re so excited about it!

Our goal is to build a new playground for the HSM property. The previous structure was beyond repair + becoming dangerous {picture the whole playground moving back + forth as children were swinging – no bueno.}

Our hope is to have a minimum of ten individuals or organizations commit to raise a minimum of $1200 each to fund an industrial playground for the property. This structure would be used by Hidden Springs Bible Church, the children who attend Hidden Springs Mission events, and visiting groups who host VBS + community gatherings.

If you, your business, and/or your church are interested in learning more – please let us know. We plan on rolling out this fundraiser mid-January!

Bill + I are currently planning 2020 for our family, our nonprofit, our work, and our lives. No big deal! Thank you for praying for us as we continue to seek what God has for us + HSM on the Reservation. We truly appreciate it!  More info on what’s cooking in our next newlestter…

To those of you who have partnered with us:

It’s hard to believe that we will have been here for a year + a half (on the 25th!), and we couldn’t have done it without each & every one of you. Your faithful prayers, thoughtful correspondence, and consistent giving have encouraged us more than you know.

There’s always room at the table & if you would like to join our work on the Reservation, we’d love to have you.
