2012 in Review

2012 in Review


Our hearts are grateful to God for His blessings on our lives during this past year.  Health, provision, ministry, family strengths....it is all part of our journey in these last months.

Family additions:
Jack Thomas Yeackley (third child of Micah and Sarah) snuck in before the end of last year. Neely Therese Argue (sixth child of Brad and Amy) was born in March.  We were delighted too, when 16 year old Sophie joined Cami and Paul’s family just a few months ago. (And did we tell you that Jess and JJ are expecting their third?!)  
Shayla “added” a new job this year with Delta Airlines.  She’s looking forward to traveling as she finds the time. 
It has been a year of great family life...lots of skyping, praying and celebrating.

In September Jackie and I flew west and spent seven days with Peter and Judy (Dave’s sister) Rogerson at their home in Powell River, BC, Canada. The scenic wonder is still going off in our minds.  A very special time.

Till mid-June we were at Church at Briargate in northern Colorado Springs.  Then after a break we came back to Nebraska, to help the Milford church in transition. That is where we are as I write this to you.  Things are going well, and we will be here still for a number of months.
 These opportunities to assist churches are all unique, and both Jackie and I are finding our teamwork to be a source of great encouragement.  Along with all of this, coaching and counseling have also been in place.

Oh, and did we tell you how much fun it is to be back in eastern Nebraska?...seeing friends, eating Valentino’s pizza, getting in on Big Red action, living in small town rural America.  (Oops...and here comes winter.  Stay tuned.)

We are grateful for each day of strength, health and purpose.  We thank God and acknowledge from our hearts that “every good and perfect gift” is from Him.

In the months ahead Jess and JJ and family hope to move overseas.  If you feel the nudge, please pray God’s blessing to be upon them.  Thanks!

We trust that this season finds you in His presence often and every way that you can advancing His Kingdom.  

God bless you!  We love you!

David & Jackie Argue
