Philip and Joy Kirkland - Merry Christmas! 2017
Here's a few snapshots of a very busy ministry season in Greece. Thank you so much for your love, prayers and support. We want to wish each of you and your families a wonderful Christmas and a New Year filled with joy and peace in the Lord.
Our new team mates arrived at the end of October. They bring a lot of energy, kindness and skills to our team, and we have been truly encouraged by them already in lots of way. Please pray for them as they continue to make the many adjustments to living in a new culture. Ps. Our children love them too!

Faros Staff Work
In January Joy began serving as a staff care counselor for Faros (NGO partnering with our national partners to serve refugees). Joy loves working so closely with many from our church and church plants in that effort.
