As you can imagine, it has been a doozy of a year but also full of blessings.




Kyle, our youngest son, his wife, Margaret and their four little ones,William, Maggie Grace, Elizabeth Anne and Meri Mae, have navigated the fluctuating school schedules as Kyle works for Bank of America from home. Margaret has been a hero on the front lines as a nurse anesthetist at a local hospital in Charlotte. We enjoy them being so near!




How fun to have Ryan and Melissa nearby as well!  They are pros at finding the most amazing spots to visit in the Carolinas! Living in Lancaster, South Carolina, Ryan continues in the insurance field as well as beginning a grading business called “Dirty Buffalo”.  We have been amazed to watch Melissa, finishing up a Master’s program at Columbia International University, and teach fifth grade at Arbor Brook Academy.  It has not been easy but she is doing a great job.   Selah, Gavin and Emery attend the same school as students.



For the past seven years she has been a nanny for Kyle and Margaret’s kids. Oh, how she loved that! Now that the kids are older and are in school, Kara has moved back into teaching as a full-time sub at Providence Day School here in Charlotte. After her asthma was helped so much, she loves using her gift of teaching along side Grace as they help people with their health through the amazing gift of Juice Plus.  Check it out!



One can imagine the roller coaster that Drew and Janna have been on journeying the pandemic from Stellenbosch, in the Western Cape, South Africa where Drew operates a nonprofit, Senai Global.

Finally, the family was able to make it to the States to put their eldest, Kaiden, into The Master’s University in the LA area for a year of Bible before heading to Davidson College on a field hockey scholarship. YAY, she will be close by!

Pray for Kirsi as she is applying to universities now.

Continue to pray for Drew and Janna as they flex with doing ministry and travel during Covid. They plan on heading back to South Africa in January.



Grace and I wish each of you will experience the “thrill of hope” that this “weary world” can rejoice in. Now, let’s go tell them about HIM, the Christ of Christmas whom we celebrate. He is perfect at stepping into chaos and bringing peace!

With lots of love and blessing!

Bill and Grace
