As December began, we made the announcement that we were running behind budget for the year (approximately $50k to be exact). With all that we have gone through over the course of 2021, that was not a bad figure. You have remained faithful and generous through some difficult times. Still, we presented the deficit, and you as a church helped us meet and in fact exceed our budget by $39k. That is an $89k swing. We are not surprised, as you have shown your faithful generosity on many occasions before, but we are exceedingly grateful to God for you! Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your partnership. We don’t know what the future holds, but we are confident that God has important things in store for us as his people at Chenal, and we are grateful to be on this journey together with you!
