Dear Family and Friends,
May the presence of Jesus fill your heart and life with peace and joy! “Do
not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the
people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the
Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2
It has been another busy year with our 17 district assemblies on the NAF,
responsibilities in the SAM Region with our regional strategy, and a short
furlough with services in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Texas,
Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa. Dwight served as a delegate from South
America to the General NMI Convention and General Assembly, and a
variety of other responsibilities and trips have rounded out the year.
Our two grandsons, Charles and Brooks continue to grow, develop, and
provide a lot of joy! Since they both live in Overland Park, KS, it makes it
convenient to see them both when we pass through Kansas City. Our
children keep extremely busy with their work. Stefanie is due with our next
grandchild in March 2018.
After 37 continuous years of ministry in the pastorate and the mission
field, the Lord has released us to make a change. That change involves
retirement from Global Mission. We will help transition the new Field
Strategy Coordinator into the North Andean Field through May 2018 and
then begin a full year of furlough. If your church or district would like to
schedule us for services you may contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
As we close out 2017 we are spending Christmas and New Years with our
children, grandchildren, Carolyn’s mom, Louise, Carolyn’s brothers and
families, and Dwight’s dad, Harry.
We look forward to a New Year with the Lord’s leading in our lives.
Dwight & Carolyn Rich
