A Time For Reflection.

We hope that your Christmas time was relaxing! We returned home to Dayton last night after spending time with family & friends. We have been thinking and thanking God for all that He has provided for us this past year. We have been putting our trust in Him, and He has provided for us in awesome ways! At church this weekend, it was said that "when we're younger, we anticipate Christmas...but as we become older, Christmas is a time for reflection." That thought has been so true for us this year!

Oh, and if you aren't ready to put away the Christmas music & decorations....

Some friends from our house church during our Christmas party.

Jonelle got to take her sister to take her driver's license test - she passed! :)

Merry Christmas from Keynote!

We'd love to share a short note and Christmas video from Keynote's director, Chris...

We want to take this opportunity to say thank you for your partnership with us! Whether you’ve served as a prayer supporter or a financial partner, your involvement with Keynote has blessed us and allowed us to move forward in ministry.

Here are a few highlights:

  • International outreaches: Mexico, Egypt, Israel and New Zealand (35 events, 4600 people in attendance)
  • Global training: Panama (several Central American countries represented) and our own International Leadership Summit where we hosted creative outreach leaders from 13 countries representing all six populated continents
  • Eight Summer Project Bands; our first ever film team during a summer project
  • Continued partnership with the Impact movement (reaching out to African American students) and a new partnership with Destino (Campus Crusade’s outreach to Latino students)
  • More than 400 concerts; nearly 70,000 lives touched and almost 3,000 decisions for Christ!

As we close 2008 and look to 2009, we wanted to leave you with a video greeting from our house to yours!

Have a very Merry Christmas! We look forward to more ministry highlights in 2009!
