Guatemala Mission Trip
Meet Richard and Lauree Hayden and their boys, Caleb and Joshua. They were on staff at our church and are now on mission in Guatemala. We had the privilege of mentoring them in preparation before their move to Guatemala.
We have been richly blessed with their friendship and so we traveled to Guatemala in October to encourage them, help them in their ministry, and brought them some of their personal belongings. Please pray for them as they begin their new life as missionaries.
Marriage Conferences
This picture is from one of the two marriage conferences we taught for several missionary ministries while we were in Guatemala.

Since then we spoke at a marriage retreat for our home church in the hills of NC.
Please pray for us as we have been asked to do another marriage retreat for another local church in February.
New Name, Busy Year, New Possibilities
We have now incorporated in NC, so we changed our name to Solitude Place Ministries Inc. The Lord is expanding our outreach into many different areas of ministry so it just made sense to update our name.

The Solitude Place apartment was filled most of this year with pastors, missionaries, and families in ministry who needed physical rest and refreshment for their souls. It was a joy to spend time with them, share a meal and a word of counsel or encouragement. Also, our counseling office was seldom empty as we met with people in person, on the phone, and over Skype. Technology is amazing and gives those who are struggling with life the opportunity to receive help from afar. We are so blessed to see God work in powerful ways in the lives of those we spend time with each week.

The home that was given to Solitude Place Ministries is being prepped for sale as we write this update. The mobile home next door has already found a new place to rest.
Our board will decide the best course of action after the sale. Please pray for wisdom as they guide Solitude Place Ministries into 2020.

Thank you so much for your generous giving and prayer support! Every minute you pray and every dollar you give doesn't go unnoticed. You matter! God is using you to build up the Body of Christ.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
