Seasons Greetings to one and all,

As usual around the Cole house, this has again been a year filled with adventure. We wish we could share all our experiences with you, but we’ll just tell about a few of the good things.

Michael is in his 15th year as one of two family doctors in the small town of Roland, Oklahoma. Serving as an elder at West-Ark Church of Christ and being the Webmaster for the church’s Web site continue to be fulfilling responsibilities. In June, Michael led his 11th medical mission team to Guyana, South America. Still enjoying genealogy, he has made much progress this year with his paternal line.

Jeannie remains on the Fort Smith school board. This year she was elected president of Arkansas PTA. Jeannie traveled to Baltimore and Chicago, visits Dallas as often as possible, and accompanied Michael to Guyana and Atlanta. She is often in Little Rock and other Arkansas cities.

Angelique is now living near Dallas. Her husband, Greg Moses, graduated from Harding University in May and is now a freshman medical student at UT Southwest. Angelique works as a patient service representative at the medical center. She plans to complete her college degree soon.

Steven is a sophomore at Harding. We hope he keeps busy studying for his computer engineering major. Steven sings baritone in the Harding Choir. He often looks in on Jeannie’s mother who lives in Searcy and helps him with his laundry.

Velma, Jeannie's mother, was our house guest awhile following her surgery in November. She is recovering slowly.

We think of our friends and relatives throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season. The Lord has truly blessed our lives with many wonderful people. We appreciate you. Come visit us online at www.theColeFamily.com and in Fort Smith if you find yourself near our home. May God abundantly bless you and all those you love during the new year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Michael & Jeannie
