The Big Picture

Dear Friend,

Dave and I love to talk about where God has brought us, reminiscing on the amazing things He has done in our lives and through this ministry. We enjoy looking back at photos and remembering His goodness and the lives with which we have been blessed to intersect—the people we have met, been honored to help, and people like you who have become family through the support and love you extend to us.

That’s why each year we so enjoy presenting our annual report. As a ministry, it encourages us—and gives us the opportunity to flip the camera around to thank our extended family, who is right there with us behind the scenes, every step of the way. Those who pray and give generously to help the lost and hurting—you, our partners.

You see, I believe that photos are much more than simple images—they are stories. Snapshots of moments I don’t ever want to forget. They pull into focus the importance of all that has happened and allow us to be truly aware of and grateful for the big picture of all God has done.

Reflecting back at 2018 is nothing short of astounding. Together, we reached several exciting milestones. And along the way we captured images of people whose lives are forever changed because of your support. These moments remind us of how each person touched our hearts as much as we touched theirs.

One thing is certain, there is no way any of this could have happened if God wasn’t all over it. Dave and I are continually amazed by how He uses all of us to help people around the world in their greatest moment of need, and we are ever thankful for growing opportunities to share His love with millions who are desperate for hope.

We are grateful and accountable stewards of the blessings you have shared. As you reflect back on the Big Picture of 2018, I hope you will see yourself in every photo, and on every page.

And remember, Dave and I are more thankful for you than words can say.
