Happy New Year from Waylon and Martha

Martha and I wish you a joyful and blessed new year.

This year gives us the opportunity to love God and love people. It allows us time to join with others who want to make a difference in our world.

I want to thank you for the privilege you give me. Many of you begin your morning reading my daily efforts to encourage your spiritual growth. I am humbled by that responsibility. Thank you for being a faithful reader and an encourager of my efforts.

May God bless you in this year. May it be a year of deep spiritual growth and abundant blessings.

You both are in our prayers. We also pray that 2016 will be a year of spiritual renewal in our country lead by strong leaders such as yourself.
