A Good Kind of Tired...

By Matt Chancey I've recently started CrossFit Training. And let me tell you, there are few better ways to feel your age! Ouch! The first few days, I was waddling like a duck everywhere. I was so sore! But I keep going back. Why? Because at the end of each session, I feel great. I look back at all the repetitions of the various exercises I've completed and feel a sense of satisfaction. I'm tired and sore, but I'm happy.

That's how we're feeling now at PPF. 2015 has been crazy busy. Crazy!! It's hard to begin to recap all that has happened. We have worked ourselves to near exhaustion in the field. But just like a CrossFit session, we're looking back and feeling a wonderful sense of accomplishment.

PPF Ministry Team in Eastern Equatoria State, South Sudan

Our biggest feeling is one of gratitude. We're grateful to God for commissioning us to do this work, and for seeing us through. And we're grateful for you, our ministry partners, who have entrusted us to be ambassadors of your love.

Below are some of our ministry action photos of 2015 to visually tell the story of all that your giving has accomplished in just one year. Our hope is that it encourages you in seeing all that can be accomplished when you decide to roll up your sleeves and engage in Active Compassion for the Persecuted.

From all of us at PPF, we wish you a very Merry Christmas - and we'll see you next year!
