Dear friends,Many of you know that I (Cindy) worked for ten years at a local funeral home in a small town. One of the main lessons inlife that I have taken from that season of serving the wonderful people of that little town is: It is all about the relationships.The memories that were shared at a time of loss were about the person and how that person affected lives around them.
The soul of a person is individual and irreplaceable
. This realization is normally most acute when saying goodbye to the“castle” that once used to house the soul gone from us.You are probably thinking this is really a depressing way to begin a Christmas newsletter. But I am going to kindly askyou to consider it more a letter of tribute and thanks to the people that cross our relational paths in the past, present andfuture. A large part of who we are is because of the people that God brings in to our lives. Honoring those people thathave gone on to sit at the feet of Jesus in heaven is the right thing to do. But how much more appropriate is honoringthose that are still with us, those folks that bless us just by allowing us to be a part of their lives?Kurt and I are over here working through relational ministry with military teens becauseGod told us to come and demonstrate God’s love and desire to meet with every soul.We are both changed hearts because we said “yes” to serving wherever we are told togo. For every person that we have met and built friendships with on either side of theocean, we have come away with more than we could ever give in terms of grace andmercy. By reaching out relationally, we have been given unmerited love. We areincredibly humbled by this.This will be our ninth Christmas overseas and our second one without the boys with us.Since leaving in 2004, we have been able to make it home only once to be with our families during the holiday time. Gosh, it is easy to get lost in the thoughts of beinghome sick, wishing we could find a real life Scotty from
Star Trek 
to beam us wherewe want to be. Hopefully you can sense there is a “however” coming in this train of thought. There is one. I have spent the afternoon thinking about each Christmas andNew Year, where we were, who we were with, recalling at least one thing about themand most times many great memories. It was enlightening to think on them. Nomatter what the circumstances were, there was something to be learned andtreasured in those numerous relational Christmas gifts from God.This coming Christmas our time will be spent here at home with just the two of us.Both of our boys will be stateside with their little families. We plan to use up a lot of bandwidth and time on Skype with them! A few days after Christmas, we will headdown to Austria with our military teens and have a blast doing some of that relational
