2007 Christmas Letter
Adam and his beautiful sweetheart, Allegra, were married on Friday, December 7 in a small, intimate ceremony in Waterloo, Iowa. He is working at Bertch Manufacturing, and preparing to go back to school at the University of Northern Iowa.
Ryan graduated from High School, and is now attending Indiana Wesleyan University, majoring in Youth Ministry. He has been doing quite a bit with music lately -- and has some very fascinating summer job offers which will put his musical gifts to use. His girlfriend, Ashley, is attending University of Wisconsin (Eau Claire.)
Luke and Wes are teenagers. Luke is a freshman in High School, and Wes is in 8th Grade. Luke had the opportunity to go on his first missions trip this summer -- a week on the LCO Reservation. Luke and Wes have a lot of fun together -- and they help us to laugh a lot! They both qualified for Nationals in Bible Quizzing this past year. Luke is learning to play the guitar, and Wes is picking up the bass!
Hannah (11) is a rookie Bible Quizzer this year, and she also plays the violin. She helps babysit for the church mentoring program every Tuesday evening.
Cathy continues to homeschool the children. She was the head coach for our area's top Bible Quiz team this year at the National Competition in Missouri. Her health is much improved after last year's scare -- and she's back to normal -- full steam ahead. She also teaches piano lessons.
Mark is in his seventeenth year as Senior Pastor of Hayward Wesleyan Church, which continues to thrive. He had the privilege of teaching/speaking in Nicaragua, Minnesota, Maryland, and Indiana this year. He has also done some writing for Wesleyan Publishing House and Rev Magazine, along with his blog, Revitalize Your Church.
Cathy and Mark celebrated 25 years of marriage on August 28. They are honoring their Silver Aniversary by going on 25 Special Aniversary Dates throughout the year.
Together, the Wilsons wish you a very Merry Christmas, and we pray that God will bless you abundantly in 2008.
