Dear friends and family,
We would like to take this minute to wish you all the very best in the new year. Looking back, we can see the many ways in which God has been with us and blessed us throughout the year 2007. It has been a busy year, traveling across the world and back. In March Flory finished his graduate degree in law in Congo. In April we were married. In May Sarah graduated from the seminary and in June we both moved to Congo for the summer where we worked with Agro Action Allemande. In September and October we moved back to America and began the prepartions for the arrival of our son in the new year. We are so grateful to God for being with us every step of the way and for the many friends who have encouraged and supported us through it all. We pray that 2008 will be a year full of love, joy and the presence of God in your lives as he was in ours during 2007.
Chers amis et connaissances,
Au debut de chaque nouvelle annee, je me pose toujurs la question de savoir, quels sont les missions du Dieu tout puissant que je dois accomplir? Quelles sont les surprises que l'annee suivante me reserve? Quelle est le plan?
Mais, je suis conscient que chaque seconde de ma vie qui passe, ne revient pas en arriere, et donc, je cherche toujours a mettre chaque seconde de ma vie en profit car je sais qu'elle ne reviendra plus jamais.
Voici une nouvelle annee 2008, quels sont les projets? Bien sur, c'est une annee qui m'appelera a plus des responsabilites qu'en 2007. C'est une annee, j'ai confiance, qui me fera grandir, qui fera grandir ma famille et qui emportera quelqu'un de plus important dans ma famille, mon premier fils.
Ma priere a Dieu serait que cette annee soit non seulement pour ma famille mais aussi pour vous tous, une annee de paix, de prosperite et de longevite.
Que le Dieu Tout Puissant vous garde et vous benisse.
Le votre

La famille Buki
