Seasons Greetings

It is hard to believe that it is already time once again for our annual year-end greetings to friends and family. We hope this letter finds you in good health and with God's lovingkindness showered upon you. The Lord continues to bless us in astounding ways. It has been an exciting year for us and we want to share our joy with you.

Michael led his 8th medical mission to Guyana, South America, in June, where we saw over 2200 patients in 5 days. Jeannie and Steven served as Bible teachers on the team. Before returning to the States, we enjoyed a day on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. Michael and Jeannie attended the state family physicians meeting, then went to San Francisco for the national convention a couple months later. When not busy seeing patients, Michael is often working on putting more Web pages on the Internet. We now have our very own Web site at http://www.theColeFamily.com

Jeannie was elected First Vice President of the Arkansas PTA. She attended the National PTA convention in Nashville and was forced to sit through a Grand Ole Opry performance. Jeannie has been elected Secretary on the Fort Smith School Board. She continues to be active in the leadership of ladies' Bible classes at West-Ark Church of Christ.

Steven, now 17 and a junior at Southside High School, made the All-State Choir in the Spring. He takes private voice lessons at the community college and made the All-Region Choir again this Fall. He is studying second year German and is enjoying the technical part of drama. Steven's computer skills are among the best in his school. He has been driving the Saturn for over a year now and impressively has been accident-free.

The biggest event at our house this year was Angelique's wedding on 2 January to Greg Moses. After honeymooning in Hot Springs, they settled in at 701 S. Elm St., Apt. B2, Searcy, AR 72143. They are studying at Harding University and are active with Downtown Church of Christ. Greg works part time at the hospital, and Angelique spends her time on their computer when not doing housework or studying Greek. Check out their impressive Web site at http://www.ipa.net/~gamoses/. Their e-mail address is gamoses@ipa.net.

If you haven't already mailed us a note, we would love to hear from you. Our e-mail address is coles @ theColeFamily.com. It is our prayer that you will be enriched by the joys of this holiday season and that the coming year will be your best ever.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Michael, Jeannie, & Steven Cole
