¡Felize Navidad y Felize Año Nuevo a su familia a la nuestra! 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family from ours!
Brooke and I thank the Lord for your faithfulness over the past years to pray for us, to encourage us and to give towards our ministry and personal needs! Thank you for being faithful partners!

We just returned from Honduras for the birth of our 5th grandchild, Mathias Caleb Beard. He was born on December 9 at 5:18 pm just one day before Brooke's birthday. She was there to catch him at this home water-birth with his eyes wide open coming into this world! He has captured all of our hearts and we are excited to see what the Lord does in His life as well as the four elder grandchildren!

The end of the year closes with us traveling to the West Coast to spend time with friends, to attend the Calvary Chapel Missions Conference and to seek His will for our future. From the end of December through January we will travel from Baja California to Washington. We are excited about spending time with our friends in the Pacific Northwest because we have not seen many of them for years and because we have never been to this part of the US.

The end of January will find us in Peru until mid February. I am teaching a three week class on Romans at the Calvary Chapel Bible College in Cajamarca. We were here several years ago and loved our time with the students and staff so we are looking forward to this once again.

Please keep praying for our direction in ministry. We know there are many good things within God's permissive will that we can do, but in our latter years we desire His perfect will for us. Romans 8:27; 12:2
Ephesians 5:14-17

We love Costa Rica so we would love to stay in country. There is a small group of believers in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua without a church family so my heart goes out to them. There is a need to disciple believers in Cuba and raise up church leaders. We love Mexico. We love Peru. The world is our pallet and God is the artist swiping the brush (us) where He pleases. Our vision and purpose has always been to pour into the next generation so we are asking the Lord to bring them into our path so we can journey with them to plant English/International churches, ministering to the nationals, reaching out to the least, the last and the lost.

We have prayerfully put our vision to print and would love to share it with you. Please click here if you desire to read it!

So your continued prayers, encouragement and support are appreciated as we make this journey!
Wayne and Brooke
