              We hope that you are doing well and that you enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. We were grateful to spend time with family in Michigan. The kids are eagerly awaiting the Christmas break, but in the meantime, we are engaging in Advent readings together as we celebrate the season.
              In life in general, but maybe especially in ministry, we all have those times when you wonder if what you are doing really has any impact. Sometimes the Lord is gracious and allows you to see how what you are doing matters in real-time. And sometimes He allows you to see it well after the fact. There are times when we may never know the impact we’ve had. But recently we got to experience one of those very sweet glimpses of the way God has used us in the past to have a kingdom impact.
              A few weeks ago we were at a dinner at our church and ran into our friend Grace. She and her husband are transitioning to a new church where he just accepted a role as an associate pastor. Grace shared with us that the senior pastor at the church said that he knew Andy and that Andy had actually led him to the Lord. We had to search our memories for second for who that could possibly be and then it occurred to Andy that it was likely a man named Jintaek.             
              In 2004, Andy had just moved to Chicago and was working on the campus of DePaul University when he met a student named Jintaek. They connected pretty quickly and Andy began to disciple him over the course of that year. They even spent the next summer on a mission trip together. The movement at DePaul didn’t really end up launching at that point and Andy needed to spend time on other campuses. Jintaek, however, continued to walk with the Lord and actually took on a leadership role in another gospel-centered ministry there. Now Jintaek is pastoring a predominately Asian church in suburban Chicago.
              We would have had no idea that Jintaek credited his time with Andy as being so pivotal in his faith-journey if we hadn’t had this conversation with Grace at church. Sometimes we face discouragement in ministry and are grateful for sweet glimpses of the Lord’s work over the course of time.
              We are so grateful to play any role in students coming to faith and growing in their faith. And we are humbled and grateful by the role that He uses you to play as well! Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support. As you may know, year-end giving is significant to our overall budget. This year, we are specifically trusting the Lord for an additional $5,000 in year-end gifts. Would you consider giving a gift of $500, $250 or $100 to help meet that $5,000 need?

We are so grateful for all of the ways that the Lord continues to provide for us! Thank you for your consideration of this request!
With Jesus' Love,
