Meet Our Missionary Partners: Beth Almeida

A new year begins…

As I start the new year and try to anticipate and plan for what the year will bring, I am struck by how grateful I am for the situation that I am in.

Some things that I am grateful for…

What’s ahead for the next few months…

I continue working on learning my role as a regional director. I am gaining background not only in getting to know my team and their work, but also in learning some of the history and culture of the region. I am getting a feel for where I need to focus my attention over the next year. I will be traveling 4 weeks out of the next 8 weeks. I will be meeting with staff and seeing the work close up, as well as learning more about what my role includes. I also have a chance to meet with some of our partner organizations.

Even though I’m facing the new year with a bit of apprehension…

There is lots of travel and planning to do and decisions to be made. There are many depending on me. A quick look back to remember how God has provided in the past, and a scan around me to see all that I am blessed with now, helps me look forward with a smile.

Thanking God for you,
