I just returned from my first trip to the Holy Land. I have had many opportunities to go before, but my wife Penny was never able to go with me. This has always been a "bucket list" trip for us to take together so I wanted to wait until she would be able to go with me. So this time she was able to get away to go with me, and I am so thankful we were able to take in everything together. It was a trip that both of us will never forget!
As always, God was faithful to Oneida in 2018. Our ministry opportunities with local families continued to expand. We now serve over 100 local students and their families.

Most importantly, many students gave their lives to Christ in the 2018 year.
