Letter from the Executive Director: A Light in the Darkness

My Tarheels have gotten off to a bad start this basketball season. As they are trying to regroup, one of the players insisted that despite having a great year last year – they needed to cut the cord from last year’s team and forge ahead with a new identity for this year’s team.

In 2023 there will come a time we will need to “cut the cord” from 2022. This will involve putting behind the mistakes and difficulties and discovering the new things and opportunities God has for the new year.

This month, the days are short, and the nights are long. Let’s not allow darkness and difficulties to keep us from “shining like stars in the sky” (Philippians 2:15). As we cut the cord, God will move us into the light of a new day, as he has with the people in this newsletter.

At the Mission, we look forward in 2023 to seeing the lives that will be changed now and for eternity – seeing those who “cut the cords” of the past to embrace God’s new life.
