1 Christmas 2015 Edition I greet you in the priceless gift God gave us in His Son, Jesus Christ! My family and I send our heartfelt Christmas greeting to each of you. As I enter the final months towards the 2016 General Conference, I thank God for this call on my life. I remain consistent and committed while relying on the grace of God and His strength in leading my path in this campaign and my ministry. As we look to a new year, excitement is in the air, as we anticipate what God will do in our lives. Christmas is a time to reflect. As I count my blessings, I thank God for each of you and how you have blessed me with your love, support and prayers. Let s celebrate His birth! Wishing you and your family a very blessed Christmas and prosperous New Year!
