Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! 

In a few days, families will gather to celebrate the birth of Christ. For me and Christine, our annual tradition is for family around the country to converge on my mother and fathers-in-law home. We fill the house with more than 18 people and for five days we party: food, laughter, gifts with bows as big as elephant ears, and home-made eggnog that’s sure to violate every weight loss program.    

What’s your family tradition? Whatever it might be I hope you share it with the ones you most care about.

Jesus is the light of the world; he illuminates dark places and offers up hope. 

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).

Christine and I overflow with gratitude for each of you. God has called Capitol Commission Missouri to advance the Kingdom of God in a unique mission field; a field where the Gospel of Jesus - the good news of hope and promise, is proclaimed in the political arena.

In an era of heated debates that separate brothers and sisters in Christ, disunity, accusation, and battles in the trenches between the political party's values, Jesus offers redemption. He unifies the followers of Christ and all that focus on “Immanuel - God with us”.

Your partnership, prayers, and encouragement strengthen me and Christine as we seek to impact a vital global mission field.

Believe with us that 2020 will be a year where the reign and rule of our Christ and His Kingdom will invade the hearts and minds of men and women and boys and girls.

Thank you for journeying with us. Your love and prayers are priceless. We wish for you and your family a joy-filled Christmas! 

With sincere THANKS, we love you
John, Christine, Alaina, Brent, and Justin.
