Happy New Year!

The clock has officially welcomed a new year -- full of possibilities, opportunities, and the everlasting promise of the Lord's faithfulness! Its humbling to look back over 2010 and reflect on all the blessings the Lord showered upon us: Good health. Safe travels. Opportunities to share. Spiritual growth through personal and ministry challenges. Sweet fellowship with believers across the nation. [Including many of YOU!!] New additions to our family. We have so much to be thankful for -- I could continue on and on!

And so we look forward to the coming year with anticipation, knowing that the Lord goes before us!

"Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended;
but one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward
to those things which are ahead,
I press toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus"
Phil 3:13-14

We're also pausing to celebrate our blog birthday today! Has it already been 5 years since we started sharing bits of our life online?! You have been such an encouragement to our family over the years -- its a treat each time we get to meet a blog reader in person!

And to add to the celebration, we're giving away 3 of our newest CDs, "He is Faithful"! To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment on this post and we'll be drawing 3 random names on January 5th.

So let the festivities begin! Simply leave your name and state (or country) in the comment box along with anything additional thoughts you'd like to share!

May you experience HIS joy in 2011!

Your family has encouraged me to reach out to the lost with the good news of Jesus and also to other Christians who need to be encouraged and strengthened in their faith. It is exciting to see your family wholeheartedly serving the Lord! In 2011 may God bless you and strengthen you and may you continue to put God first and be a blessing to the many hurting and confused in this world. People are hungry to see a family that loves each other and loves Jesus. Your family is such a blessing!!

Jenna said...

We have greatly enjoyed following your blog these past 2 years...our whole family has been encouraged and especially my sister Grace...I think that I told you (Rachel) about her and some of the special blessings about her...we are SO grateful that she finds encouragement from your wonderful family.

Through your CD's she hears the gospel message over and over - Praise God! She looks up to the older girls in your family as godly examples in her life and I am forever thankful for what she sees: sweet spirits, loving hearts, helpful attitudes, the Love of Christ, smiles, excellent sibling relationships and modest dress.

With that - I would love to enter:) Your family is in our conversation and prayers each day and we are continually blessed by the music.

Sorry for the long-winded-ness of the comment - just want you to know that God is using you in a mighty way and I pray that HE blesses you abundantly this year!!


Love in Christ,
Jenna in Michigan~

Hello Wissmanns!
You as a family are such an encouragement to me regarding sharing the Gospel and ministering to those who are searching for an answer to their problems in life. What an example of putting Christ first in your lives. Also, your radiant smiles and servant hearts are a continual blessing to me.
During the following year, may God richly bless you as you continue to serve Him. May He bless you with safety, health, and abundant love that you can willingly share with people you are ministering to.
We would love to have you visit Alaska!

A blessed new year to your family from New Zealand!

I(we) have been blessed to see how the Lord has kept you safe this last year as you traveled and ministered to different people. It is very encouraging to see another family visit nursing homes in particular. When we were small we did the same in our country, and even to this day I don't know another family that does this sort of thing. We rubbed off on a small christian home-schooling school and now every term the whole school goes to different nursing homes around our area to do a program for the ones residing there! It is such a joy to see their faces light up, especially when they see small children singing their favourite hymns!! God bless you for what you are doing and may He be your shelter in times of calm and storm.

many blessings and will continue to look forward and see what God does this year for you all!

Happy New Year to the Wissman Family!!
You've been such a blessing to our family in so many ways: your blog, your Branson show, your CDs, and most importantly your willingness to share God's Love with the world!

God's blessings to you always-

Just wanted to let you all know that I love your blog and your beautiful music. I wasn't much of a bluegrass fan until I heard you music. You all are very talented and it's a blessing to know that you use your talent for God's glory. May you all be richly blessed in this new year and always.
