MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE RONCHI FAMILY!!!

How amazing that HE CAME! He came! He lived among us. We have a High Priest who can sympathize with us in our time of need. And not only that, but He died and he rose again! Christmas is filled with such promise. Promise of all that lies ahead…promise of the hope He has given us through the cross. What a blessed time of year! Rejoice with your loved ones!

It has been a really tough year. But with every trial comes God’s hidden blessings. We know that our Saviour is in control ALWAYS and that all things work together for the good of those who love Him. And we see that- every day we see how he uses what the enemy would intend for our destruction to rebuild us, mold us, and shape us. He never leaves us. He is so faithful. This year we have seen His faithfulness in a new way and we have learned to trust Him even more and have grown an even greater hunger for Him through it all.

Santa Day Fun!

Decorating with the kids for the winter season. The kids opening their goodies from Santa.

We are ready for the winter season to begin here at the Ronchi home!

(To avoid celebrating Santa fun and Jesus’ birthday the same day we opted to celebrate the kids Dutch roots and celebrate Santa day the 5th of December.)
