As  we welcome 2022, I wanted to share with you two simple ideas that came  to me this Christmas season. The first one hit me as I stood in  Christmas Eve service singing Silent Night. I held a candle alongside my  family, in a room full of others celebrating Christ’s birth. God is  faithful.

It  is a simple thought, but one that brings me more hope than anything  else in this world can. It has sustained me personally, and I know it  has sustained so many others through difficult times, changes and  transitions. This ‘simple idea’ is the foundation of my hope in the work  that Wesley College is doing. God is faithful.

This leads to my second simple thought:

As  our 2021 fundraising season ends, I am overwhelmed with gratefulness  for the generosity of strangers, who are making our ministry in Tanzania  possible.  You – each one of our donors and supporters -- were at one  time a stranger to the staff, students, and mission of Wesley College.  Nearly all of you are still strangers to the villages, towns, and cities  in Tanzania.

Still,  you believe in our work, and you believe in the faithfulness of God to  turn our efforts into transformative change. I am thankful for how God  has worked in all of our lives and led each of us to invest in others. I  believe it is God’s faithfulness that leads so many of you in  generosity to our mission.

As  we welcome the new year, please join me in giving thanks for how so  many people have come together to make Wesley College possible. As we  enter this new year, I pray for blessings on each of you, your families,  our country, and the world. May 2022 bring joy!
