Merry Christmas to all of Team Shackelford
So much has happened in the last year. Julie and I have experienced a lot of different things and some major transitions too. However, one thing remains the same…THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
As we reflect on the story of Jesus birth, we know that there was a lot of transitions that took place. All of those turned out for good and so will all of ours. We are seeing some of them working out even now.
We are honoured to be still doing ministry in fact some have asked, “What are you guys doing now?” Well, the easiest answer is…”the exact same thing just in a different location!”
We have been blessed to continue to teach the WORD on Sunday nights each week. We are also both teaching Bible Studies. I am leading two studies and Julie is leading three. One of them is online with the ladies back in Deutschland continuing to meet. We have 15 house groups that watch online weekly as well. These are located in South Korea, Pakistan, India, Germany, Italy and here in the US. I have had numerous opportunities to speak in various places as well.
We are continuing the RMC ministry both locally and globally because of the Lord and also your partnership in the ministry. We are very thankful that each of you continue to pray for this ministry as well as give financially which makes eternal impacts.
We have experienced significant financial drop in our monthly support. Would you pray that the Lord would continue to provide for our support. (over $2500 decrease in support)
Below is a picture of the local house group where we meet weekly and record the worship time for online viewing. The link provided below is there if you wish to start a house group or watch on your own.
This year Julie and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary, moved to St Helens, Oregon and have truly enjoyed time with our family!
Tyler and Robin celebrated 10 years of marriage and both are working full time. Garrett turned 15 and got his learners permit. Jaxon turned 10 and both Garrett and he enjoy remote control cars, motorcycles and snowmobiling.
Breeana is working as a chiropractic assistant and also is loving being the world’s best aunt! She is active in her church and loves coffee dates with her dad!!! Of course, I love those too.
Melanie and Robert celebrated 5 years of marriage. Lynden turned 2 and welcomed his baby sister, Evelyn into their family in April. Our new granddaughter was born with Cystic Fibrosis and we are all learning how to deal with this invisible disease.
Many changes have taken place and a lot of firsts in our life this year. That said, we know that God is leading us and it is fun to watch how He is moving.
Year In Giving
As I mentioned above, Julie and I have lost about $2500 monthly support since returning to the states. Ministry is still happening and we are also know that He will provide. If the Lord is prompting you to join our support team monthly or to give a special gift, we would love to have you partner with us. The link below will take you to the online portal with Be One Together. If you would rather use a check, make it payable to Be One Together, PO Box 112, Hiram, Georgia, 30141.
As we move forward, we want to THANK YOU for being a part of the ministry of the Rejuvenation Ministry Center Global. It is Your Ministry because of your prayers and support. Thank you for investing into the lives of so many and the impact that it makes both here and eternally.
That is an investment that truly pays dividends that count!
We would like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Love and prayers,
