Dear Kossuth Family,
As Matt and I plan to move very soon to Little Rock, Arkansas, we wanted you to know how much you are appreciated and loved. All of you have truly become our family. There have been many times that we found ourselves dragging into the church doors only to be filled up and encouraged by your lives, gospel words being sung from your mouths, and watching you love each other well. Our meetings with you drove us to continue to work well in our jobs, love our neighbors, share the truth with boldness, and keep on with the race that sometimes feels endless and exhausting.
So many of you we have not even had a chance to have in our home or us in yours, but know that your lives encouraged ours. We've watched you love and discipline your children well, walk through suffering, give of your abundance, and serve in our body with humility and love for others. To those of you who have dug deep with us, prayed with us for children, kept us accountable, helped us financially, or helped us navigate many decisions—thank you for walking through life with us. Your time, words, and encouragement will forever be a part of who we are.
Thank you for your sweet, sweet, fellowship Kossuth. Please continue your work with perseverance; your hearts for the gospel are valuable and there are so many who still need to hear the good news!
Please pray for us as we look forward to the opportunities God has for us in Arkansas. Pray for us as we seek fellowship with believers. We have a renewed passion and desire for the lost, specifically the unreached, our neighbors, coworkers, and soon to be child. Pray that we would be attentive to where we can be best used including the neighborhood we choose to live in.
We look forward to hearing what God is doing through you in the years to come!
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil....speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ. (Ephesians 5)
Until the whole world hears,
Matt and Tanya Niewedde
