Happy New Year from the Walcotts

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings from snowy, frigid Michigan, where we are currently on a three-month furlough and are having a wonderful time visiting loved ones. We hope that you are having a blessed 2008 and wanted to send you this New Year greeting (along with the attached card).

2007 was an exciting year for us in many ways. We are still ministering in Generations, the youth ministry of Cornerstone Community Church in Singapore. Generations currently has over 400 members and continues to see young people saved on a regular basis. We lead one of the ministry’s six zones, where we saw steady growth throughout the year. We were able to lead many young people to salvation in different evangelistic services and saw God move awesomely in many lives, as young people were baptized in the Holy Spirit and touched by the power of God. We look forward in anticipation for what God will do in the new year.

In addition to serving in the youth ministry, Cameron continues to work full time for Cornerstone. He spent much of his time in the last year working on publications, writing weekly Bible studies for Generations and two devotions a week for the Generations website. He also worked in the church’s Training and Equipping Department, writing manuals for the church’s use and teaching in the classes. Cameron was busy with the School of Leadership from April to August, helping on staff at the Bible school that Cornerstone is running. He was also invited to minister in different places and countries during the year and we thank God for the open doors.

Delia continues to work as a teacher at East View Secondary School. She enjoys working with the students and has an excellent relationship with them. Several of her students have come to church, and ex-students retain a close relationship with her. Together, Delia and Cameron also taught a class at Cornerstone on courtship, looking in depth into Biblical views on romance and encouraging the church’s singles to seek God’s best for their lives.

The highlight of our year has definitely been watching the growth of Caleb, who turned one year old in December. Caleb is a real joy and seems to mature every day! He is rapidly learning to talk and his favorite words are "Bible", "Amen" (which he hurriedly repeats after praying for his food so that the eating can commence sooner!), and "Bob" (after the red tomato in Veggie Tales). He easily stands up and has taken unsupported steps on a couple of occasions, but usually still doesn’t have the confidence to walk without holding onto something. He loves being with both sets of his grandparents and his aunts and uncles as well.

We are going to be continuing in the States until the middle of February when we will return to Singapore. We have had and will have the privilege of visiting and ministering in several churches while we are here and we treasure the times we are getting to spend with many of you.

We look forward to the year 2008. In praying about the new year, we received the verse Psalm 27:8, "When You said, ‘Seek My face,’ my heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.’" God is speaking that this is a time to seek Him, to draw nearer to Him than ever before in our prayer, in our worship, in our study of His Word. God is looking for a righteous people that will love Him passionately, and it is our prayer that we will all be part of that company! May we all answer God’s call and seek His face with all of our hearts.

We thank you for all of your prayers and think of you often, even as we are often on opposite sides of the world. We keep you all in our prayers and pray that you will know the blessings and the presence of God throughout this year. We hope to hear back from you and will write you all again soon!

God Bless,

Cameron, Delia, and Caleb
