Thank You: Dear Friends
in Corsica: ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Lately it has struck me how
amazing God’s providence is. Although God is sovereign, he
uses human agents to carry out his will for our wellbeing,
our salvation, and for the good of his world. He is the
ultimate orchestra director! Even though we are no longer in
Mexico with Resonate, we thank you one last time for your
final very generous gift in August for the sake of the
gospel in Mexico. Thank you! --Rev. Ben and Amy Meyer and
family, formerly with Resonate Global Mission, Mexico (firstname.lastname@example.org)
