Love incarnate, love divine
Star and angels gave the sign
Bow to babe on bended knee
The Savior of humanity
Unto us a Child is born
He shall reign forevermore
Noel, Noel
Come and see what God has done
Noel, Noel
The story of amazing love!
The light of the world, given for us
Noel
Son of God and Son of man
There before the world began
Born to suffer, born to save
Born to raise us from the grave
Christ the everlasting Lord
He shall reign forevermore
Noel, Noel
Come and see what God has done
Noel, Noel
The story of amazing love!
The light of the world, given for us
Noel


A friend told me she has been listening to a song that Lauren Daigle sings
called Noel, and she said I should listen to it. I have heard it before, but it
has been replaying in my head for days now, and I really do love it. My
Noel looks around for the lady calling her name every time I play it, which
I also love, ha ha!


What a special time of year, I just love Christmas time! We get to celebrate
such a wonderful occasion of Christ leaving heaven and coming down to
earth to be born in the most humble way, to live a life without a home, and
to ultimately suffer the worst death on a cross, all for us. Christmas is a
special time to give gifts because we were given the ultimate gift, our
Saviour. We are so incredibly blessed.


And speaking of blessings, we have been blessed with a house to buy down
here in Mexico. We have been working on it and hope to be moved in by
the time our school session starts in the middle of January. Every time I’m
over at the house I can’t believe it’s ours, it’s amazing! We’re so excited
about this blessing and hope to host many people and bring God glory
through it’s use. BUT that isn’t the only blessing we’ve been praising the
Lord for, the other one is even bigger, if you can believe that!? Bigger but
smaller, as baby is still quite tiny! Yes, you read right, Baby Janz #2 is
coming, June 2021!! So yes, it seems we like to do big things all at once, but
that’s just the way life happens and the Lord orchestrates sometimes!
Some baby facts for you:


• I (Katie) have been quite nauseous, but am feeling better as I’ve
entered my second trimester
• We never found out Noel’s gender and kept it a surprise for us when
she was born, we wish to do the same with baby #2
• We hope to return to Canada to have Baby
• Baby will be the 5th grandchild on both sides of the family


School this term is to go ahead, so we’re busy as ever getting details in
order, especially with COVID. We are needing to rearrange some things and
put new policies in place. But we’re excited and already have 7 students with
many more pending! Denver is excited to be able to get to know the students
and attend classes this year. He has studied so diligently this last year, it will
be so fun for him to be able to participate more this year! And for myself,
well I am stepping back into the office. Our secretary that took over after I left
for Canada wasn’t able to come back this year as she and her husband went
on to another ministry, so that left the space open. Unfortunately, we weren’t
able to find someone and because I know the “ropes” I will be stepping back
in. Thankfully my Mum and Granny are willing to keep Noel in the mornings
to make this possible as well! It will be a full year, but we’re excited to see
what God has in store for not only the students, but us as staff.


With all these things we’re juggling, we would so appreciate your prayers!
Here are some specifics:
• Health of Baby
• Wisdom for this school term
• Strength for Katie with the office responsibilities
• That Denver will remember what he’s learned and grow more and more
in his Spanish
• That our house will be ready to move into on time so we won’t have
the added stress during school


We want to wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Much love,
Katie, Denver, Noel, and Baby Janz
