Lamentations 3:22 & 23 = “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.”
Some of you have heard my message, “Jesus loves you, but I’m His favorite.” This past month has been one that will go down in my memories as one of the greatest. Let me count a few of the blessings the Lord has chosen to give me. It was a blessing to be able to preach in three churches during the month and attend the Access Center banquet. On Saturday, November 10th, my grandson, Andrew Buhrow, married a very sweet young lady named Leah Ketchum. If she is 1/2 the wife that the first Mrs. Andrew Buhrow is, Andy will be a very fortunate and blessed man. Then, because some of my family came for the wedding and wouldn’t be here for Thanksgiving, we had a Thanksgiving dinner on the 11th. However, because my birthday fell on Thanksgiving day, we had another celebration on the 22nd. We had around 40 for each day. I have now reached the age where I am too old to die young.
On the 27th of November 15 of my family met at the courthouse, along with 35 friends and neighbors to finalize the adoption of Ashlee Joiner Krueger into our family. She will be number 61 in our family and is the 9th that came via adoption. I few so blessed and proud of my family, I think my heart might explode. (By the way, I also shot a 6 point buck on opening day of deer season)
I have a new bulletin insert for this next year. Our emphasis will be on Adoption and the flyer has the testimony of Julaine Appling on it. I will be having it available when I speak in churches, but if you would like a quantity for “Sanctity of Life” Sunday January 20th and are interested in taking up an offering for BFLW, just let me know how many you need and I will send them out to you.
I will be meeting with the folks in Eagle River during the month of December about the possibility of getting a pregnancy center started there and I’m still waiting for the people in Watertown to get that one up and running.
Pray for BFLW. Half of our board is up for election each year for a 2 year term. If you are a member or if your church is a regular supporter of this ministry, you can nominate someone you feel would be helpful to have on the board. All nominations need to be in the office here by the 1st of January.
Thank you for all your financial and prayer support for this ministry. Nancy and I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and blessed and happy new year.
Your servant for LIFE,
Andrew K. Buhrow—Executive Director– Baptists for Life of Wisconsin
