To the People of Crane Chapel

To the People of Crane Chapel:

Thank you for the privilege of serving you in the time that God allows. We are eager to serve and look forward to matching names and faces as we get acquainted with each of you. We hope to pass on to the people of Crane Chapel both a Passion for God’s Word and a Vision of being a witness of the gospel to the lost.

A few days ago we were sharing with Devon Voigt. We read together from the Book of Lamentations about Jeremiah as he viewed the devastation of Jerusalem. Despite the hardships, Jeremiah encouraged himself in the Lord:

“. . . His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is Thy faithfulness. The lord is my portion. . . therefore I will hope in Him.
--Lamentations 3:22-24

We were very excited to hear the history of Crane Community Chapel and what God has done through you. We pray it will continue! …we are here as HIS servants.

Yours in Christ,
Mark & Esthermay Goossen
