Dear Soldiers of the Cross,
Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Words cannot describe the joy I feel in my soul as I bring to remembrance all that the Lord has allowed Sheril and me to be a part of this past year. This has been a very busy year with lots of preaching, building, Bible Schools, visiting in the Native communities and lots more. At times the long miles were hard on Sheril and me, but God gave us the drive to keep on keeping on.
I want to thank each one of you for your great sacrificial giving of your finances and of your time to come out to the reservations and put your hand to the plow for the Glory of God. The Lord gave us many open doors to share the Gospel wherein we are thankful.
As we are reminded of the greatest gift ever given and received, we give thanks to God for the gift of his dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us not forget that Jesus is the gift of Christmas and that without him we would not have the peaceful promise of eternal life. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
As We Labor for Christ,
Gerry & Sheril Locklear
