Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

From all of us at CMML, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a joyous new year. We’ve enjoyed the smells and sounds of Christmas that help remind us of the great reality that God’s plan for man’s redemption, conceived in eternity past, began at the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.

“But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law that we might receive the full rights of son.” (Galatians 4:4–5)

Directors Meeting and CMML Christmas Banquet

The CMML directors held their quarterly meeting on Saturday, December 3, followed by the annual Christmas banquet for CMML staff, volunteers and the directors.

Among the usual reports discussed at the meeting, the directors formally approved Craig Fritchey taking on a new role of security and conference coordinator. Implementation of missionary safety and security has been a major task this year at CMML. Craig works with our security manager and often sends out appropriate information to missionaries in high-risk countries.
