Greetings friends,

The year 2020 will go down in the history books! More than ever, we are grateful for the ongoing, overarching Providence of God in our lives.

Currently, I am concerned for my fellow brother, Pastor Warren Cuppy, and his beautiful wife, Jane. Warren went to the doctor on Monday, December 28, and it was confirmed as he tested positive for COVID-19. Jane also is sick. I ask that you pray for God’s healing for them both.

Here are some of the highlights from December:

  • December 2: EIPC Luncheon at Greenhouse Coffee (4 pastors)
  • December 4: 1 in Christ Promotions meeting at City Bagel–I obtained the cliff notes
  • December 5: I attended the Stand for the First Amendment Rally at the Bonneville County Courthouse steps and front lawn.

  • December 8: Pastors prayer meeting at Emmaus Road Church (4 pastors)
  • December 10: IFRM staff breakfast at the downtown office area. I taught a devotional on Christ’s birth.
  • December 20: I closed in a benediction prayer for the inauguration evening service, 7:00 pm, for the new church plant, Steps to Joy Community Church.
  • December 23: I attended the Christmas services of Christ Community Church, 5:30 pm, and Providence Downtown Church, 7:00 pm–beautiful times of worship in exalting the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • December 24: With my daughter and adopted daughter, I attended the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service of Emmaus Road Church in their new location on South Yellowstone.

And then I conclude wonderful ministry on Sundays at 4:00 pm services with Pastor Warren Cuppy at Providence Downtown Church in Idaho Falls. I am so thankful to fellowship with faithful brothers and sisters in Eastern Idaho who love God, His Word, and others.
