Hi Everyone,

We hope you’ve had a great start to this New Year! We had some great visits with family and friends this past holiday season and now we’re back in Albuquerque working hard at Chelwood CRC. This past Sunday we formally announced to the congregation that we’ll be leaving them at the beginning of April (which was our agreed upon end date all along – so no real surprise there).They received it well and we look forward to working here the next three months. Part of that work is encouraging the congregation to become more missionally minded. In this effort we began an evangelism-training course (we’re working through Becoming a Contagious Christian, put out by Willow Creek) and we launched a Friendship ministry group (see We’re excited with the possibilities.

On the church planting side of things, we drifted away from it while on vacation, but we’re looking forward to the next couple of months as we work out many of the details. Please keep us in prayer as we continue to talk with some of the church leaders in the Denver area. We’ll be traveling up there in early February to work on the nuts and bolts and we ask for your prayers. As far as fundraising goes God has been very good! We are pleased to say that we’ve met our year-end goal of $20,000 in gifts and pledges, and we’re excited to see how God will continue to supply all our needs. We do still need to raise another $30,ooo or so by Easter. Please continue to consider how you might partner with us as we look to bring the good news of the gospel to the people in Denver.

We hope you are doing well and as always if you’d like to chat, if you’ve got questions, if you have a word of encouragement please get a hold of us.

We love you all.


Nate and Sam
