Dear Church Family,

Another year has come and gone and as I face my final year at Concordia, my thoughts and gratitude again comes back to my family here at Saints Peter and Paul. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your continued stewardship and prayers. As the years have gone by I realize more and more how important it is to have support through the challenges of life. You all have given me that support through every turn and obstacle and for that I will always be grateful. I believe that I would not be where I am today without your support. Your example has given me something to strive for and live by for what it means to live in Christ.

In this last year I have taken many challenging classes. I had to complete several classes in Hebrew and found it very challenging. By the close of the year my knowledge of that language has grown greatly and that has allowed me to study the bible in a different way. I also took a public speaking course which I did very well in. Through the duration of that class I learned to overcome my nerves of speaking openly in front of an audience as well as presenting more efficiently to those listening. I find that through all my education and challenges I am more certain of my career choice than ever before. Thank you all again for your continued support and may God let his grace be felt upon your hearts.

Alive In Christ,

Jarod Fenske
