Happy New Year! It has been a long time since we have posted, it seems like many of our posts start out that way! We’ll try and post more often this year. We hope that you’ve had a blessed Holiday season. Ours went very well. We were able to travel to Texas for two weeks and arrived back here to Panama Tuesday evening.
We enjoyed many different restaurants, and visited a lot with family and friends. Going back to the USA we had a list of restaurants that we missed and wanted to eat at. We made it to all of them, some more than once! So we came back several pounds heavier (especially Derek) but very content because of all the visiting we got to enjoy.
We are happy to be back in Panama and we’re ready to continue the ministry that God has for us here. We don’t know what each day holds, but we look forward to all God has in store.
This time of year, many make resolutions of all different kinds. Although these can be good, New Years Resolutions are not really our thing. But the New Year does provide a chance to look back on last year and to look ahead to the next year. We are very appreciative of the blessing that we have, and we see areas we need to change and improve upon this year.
More than any other time of the year the holidays seem to be busy. We were no exception to that generalization. It’s crazy how quickly days can pass, then they turn into weeks, and in the blink of an eye months or even years have passed. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and miss what really matters.
We hope that we have not done this too much. It has caused us to think, what does matter in life? We hope that your life is filled with loving relationships, and a relationship with God that is growing daily. If we focus on the things that matter we’re sure that we can experience all God has for us this year. We look forward to what all that is!
Thanks for keeping up with us. Feel free to write or call us anytime. Happy New Year and God Bless,
Derek and Audrey Tucker
