"And He will be called Wonderful Counselor"

Josh and Beth Paulick on January 19, 2015

    “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders.  And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
    Christmas was a fun and busy time.  We hosted Beth’s family for Christmas which, included four kids four and under.  It was a little chaotic at times, but a wonderful blessing to be all together again under the same roof.  Christmas was such a fun time with an advent devotional that Beth found to do with Elijah that pointed back to the reason for celebrating.  We all had fun working on it together, as it included a lesson of the day that was centered around a specific word and a craft to go along with it.  
    November was filled with a final ultrasound training for Beth and the Thanksgiving holiday.  Beth is happy to be able to be doing ultrasounds and has even had one client who canceled her abortion after seeing her baby.  
    December we celebrated Elijah’s 3rd birthday by getting to take the Polar Express to the North Pole.  Elijah loves trains, and it was fun to see him so excited.

    We are looking forward to what God has for us in 2015.  We are at 11% of our support, but we know that God has a plan for us and trust that He is able to exceed our expectations.  Every little bit helps, so if you are able to support us monthly, yearly, or just once, it helps.  If we had about 64 people willing to give $50 a month and 31 to give $100, we could reach our goal, so please pray if it would something God would have you do.  We are praying and hoping that we can take a short term trip to Togo in 2015 to fill a surgical need in the Hospital of Hope, which is scheduled to open in March.  

Prayer and Praises:
Pray that God would continue to raise up ministry partners
Praise that Beth has been able to start doing ultrasounds as a part of her ministry at the pregnancy center and that lives are being saved through that ministry.
Pray that things would come together for us to be able to go to Togo for a short term trip this year
Praise that we could spend the holidays with family.
