We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and have a very Happy New Year! We are approaching the beginning of a brand new yearó2019! We are excited about the opportunities of the upcoming year and hope that you are as well.

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) 11 "For I know the thought I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an unexpected end"

Everything good in our life comes from God, and we are instructed to follow His direction for our lives.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) 5 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, lean not unto thine own understanding" 6 "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct thy paths"

Perhaps 2018 was a rough year. You may have experienced family complications, sickness, job difficulties, or emotional struggles. Maybe you were laid off from your job, maybe you lost a loved one during this past year, and there is a lonely place in your heart. Possibly your financial situation was a troubling issue. I am sure that each of us could say that there were some good days in this past year, but there were some exasperating days as well. The good news is that Christ is always with us. He will never leave or forsake us. The Holy Spirit brings us comfort in our trials. During all of our tribulations and at times of blessings, let us remember that the wonderful news of the gospel is the most significant message we will ever hear! We know that by our acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our lives, we will spend eternity with Him. Praise His Holy Name!

May we look ahead to the New Year with joy in our hearts and an effort to do something each day to glorify our Lord. The tiniest deed can brighten the lives of some; a friendly smile, a visit to a nursing home or an outing to a sick friend. It is the act of sharing Godís love that is important---not an amount or quantity. It is the simple action of doing what we can for others and being true brothers and sisters in Christ. We are the family of God and Christís blood was shed for each and every one of us.

The Harvesters look forward to an exciting year and the opportunity to see all of you at one or more of our concerts. Check our concert schedule at our web site and know that we would be delighted to see you as we continue our music ministry to "Reap Souls for His Kingdom".

May God bless and keep each and every one of you in His loving care is our prayer,
Danny, Allen, Mark,Tommy
