Clemen.Timez 3 December 2016

Dear Partners, Family, and Friends,

thanksgiving-gangThis November brought many blessings to the Clementz family. We received an extra special gift for Thanksgiving – 13 missionary kids (MK) and international students warmed our home as we shared food, games and laughter! It was a great time to share stories of Papua New Guinea and other places around the world.  Such a joy for Molly and I as we were able to see what God is doing in their lives. Sean, Mikayla and Emily spent as much time as they could over the long holiday weekend with these true friends. It was sad for it to come to an end. One thing we know however, with MK’s it is never goodbye; it’s, ‘See you soon!’.

My new job in developing teaching materials and training translators in the newest version of ParaTExt is to begin January 2017. I am excited to get back into a teaching/training mode again. In order for me to begin my job we need to be at full support. This leads to another huge blessing in our lives, we only have $800/mo to reach this goal. God is good and touching the hearts of many people to come behind us with monthly gifts and/or one-time gifts.

Please pray with us for the following points:

  • Additional monthly partners and personal advocates for us to finalize the last $800/mo.  wycliffe.org/partner/clementz
  • Any year-end gifts would help us meet this coming year’s expenses.
  • Sean and Mikayla as they both look to God for direction concerning college for next year.
  • A replacement for our little car – it does not do well in our winter weather.  We’d like to get a 4WD truck.

Our desire is for more people see the value of God’s Word in all languages.  1700 people groups are still waiting for the Word in their heart language.  He wants everyone to have the opportunity for God to speak in a way that is meaningful to their lives today and for the future.

Please let us know what is happening in your life.  We’d love to pray for you.

Blessings always,

Robert
