“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) What a great year 2014 has been to serve the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ! God has been very good to our church, my family, and me in graciously giving us the honor and privilege to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Sunday school had a four-week campaign that God greatly blessed with souls saved and many first-time visitors. Last Sunday morning we had a great turnout for our Christmas potluck banquet. Since our October prayer letter, God has given our church 19 precious souls who received Jesus as their Saviour.
Please pray much that the new believers would remain and faithfully serve Jesus together with us. Our church is still in need of purchasing a van to be able to bring more people to our services. If you can financially help us with this great need, please make your checks out to FBMI, and write “Tirado Van Fund” in the comments section of your check. I ask that you would continue to pray for my mother’s health and for my father as he cares for her. She has some memory issues and recently had two cataract surgeries, which have greatly improved her eyesight.
My family and I look forward to another year of serving alongside our faithful supporting churches in 2015. We very much appreciate your constant and effectual financial and prayer support of our family and ministry that God has given us. You have been a continual source of encouragement to my family and me over the years. I would like to express my gratitude to the many churches and individuals who sent cards and emails in remembrance of my birthday. I pray that the Lord would continue to richly prosper and bless you and yours in 2015 and beyond. Merry Christmas!
