Well, 2011 is about over. It has been a great year for WVIW. We had several successful Marriage Seminars as well as several special services in prisons. I also preached in several churches across America. It was a special blessing to be able to travel to England and preach for the European Conference of the Full Gospel Fellowship of Churches and Ministers.
2011 was a very special year for WVIW in the area of recognition of this ministry. In July Betty and I received the Ray Chamberlin Award as Missionaries of the Year from the Full Gospel Fellowship of Churches and Ministers. Then in November Betty received the Chaplain Ray Hoekstra Lifetime Achievement Award from the Coalition Of Prison Evangelists.
Betty was named Chief Operating Officer of WVIW by the board of directors, and Travis was named Apprentice Director of WVIW and Director of our international ministry, Connect Global, which we launched this year.
Travis and Javier made a trip to Honduras where they built five fish farms for five families. These farms produce fish and vegetables for a family for life at no cost to the family. Connect Global has plans to build 100 of these farms in the village of Cusuna alone. They will return in March to build ten more. You can provide a family with food for life with a gift of $500.

2012 is gearing up to be very busy and very Successful.Our Marriage Seminar schedule is already full for 2012. We will have four seminars for inmates and one for officers. The seminar for officers is half funded. We need another $7,000 to fully fund it. The inmate seminars cost $6,000 each. Perhaps you could give that to fund one of these wonderful seminars. Or maybe give a part of the funds needed. Maybe you could give a portion each month to see a couple save their marriage. Please pray about what God would have you do.
