Dear Harvest Family & Friends,
December 31, 2015
Well 2015 is over and a new year is getting ready to start. I have spent several days looking back at 2015 and trying to find “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” and for the life of me I can’t remember any of the bad or the ugly. I know that if I was to ask some of my friends they would be able to tell me. However I will refrain from asking them and just concentrate on “The Good” of 2015. Here are several of the “Good” things that happened.

1. Jim Moore from Samaritan’s Purse was our guest speaker for the 2015 fundraiser. It was a great event and well attended
2. We updated the Harvest webpage and made it more user friendly. Take a moment and check it out.
3. In light of the unrest in Ukraine early in 2015 things have been relatively calm. Life in Ukraine, although a little strained, continues. Thank you Lord.
4. Short term teams continued to travel to Haiti, Romania, and Ukraine throughout the year and reported a number of people coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ, as their Savior.
5. All of our missionaries are still on the mission field and working hard for the Lord.
Speaking of missionaries, each of them have sent me an “End of Year letter” which has been made into a Harvest International 4th Quarter Newsletter. The letter will be available at www.harvestinternational.org no later than tomorrow, December 31st. Please take a moment to read some of the testimonies from the folks that you support through Harvest International.
As I look at the New Year I am hopeful. This year is going to be filled with unbelievable events as we see the day of the Lord drawing closer. A very close friend of mine has committed to “Making the name of Jesus known” in everything he does. He shared a testimony with me just the other day that made me think that he is on to something that we can all do in 2016. He purchased a new printer for his home and has not been able to get the printer to work due to some internet/Wi-Fi issues in his home. He has been dealing with “tech support” several times a day for over 7 days. Instead of being frustrated and upset he shared with me that he has had the opportunity to share the Love of Jesus with many support people as they try to solve his printer issues. He is depending on the Lord to solve the printer issue and while he “waits on the Lord” he has shared the Lord with all those techs. What a great testimony to the love that we should have for those that do not know Him.
My message to you for 2016 is that you take advantage of every opportunity you get to share Jesus with those you come in contact with. Our time here is short and there is a lot to be done.
God bless you and Happy New Year!
Danny
