We keep thinking that things cannot get busier. Maybe next year! You can keep up with most of our journeys and activities by going to my blog: http://tomschlueter.blogspot.com. Blogging! We have moved into a new era of communication. With our ministry in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as well as all of Texas and the nation on the increase, we are now Face booking, blogging, tweeting, etc. As a matter of fact, most you will receive this letter via one of those methods.

It has been a marvelous year. With ministry and leisure we have travelled most of Texas. As a matter of fact we have literally been to or through over 400 Texas towns and cities this year. We made another trip to New York State (Fort Drum in Watertown) to welcome our second grandson Nate in January. We’ve been to Washington DC, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Mexico, Mississippi, Alabama and Israel for ministry.
Tom is still pastoring Prince of Peace Church in Arlington as well as overseeing the Texas Apostolic Prayer Network. Kay is a successful Pampered Chef consultant. You can go to www.pamperedchef.biz/kayschlueter to view her job. She will continue to watch TJ during the week but that job will increase with little Anna. And how about those Texas Rangers!
Josh, Andrea and Nate. Josh will be in Afghanistan until mid-March. When he returns, they will head back to Watertown, New York before he starts Captain training at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. We await his next assignment (hopefully closer to home) when that training is finished. We saw Josh during his R&R in November. Andrea will finish her Masters Degree in Education in March. Nate was born in January and he is absolutely wonderful. Please keep them in prayer as they go through major transitions.
Katie, Tim, TJ and Anna. The family grew again in 2010. Anna was born in November just days before all of our family and Tim’s family showed up for Thanksgiving. Tim and Katie are still employed at the same aerospace company here in the Arlington area. Katie will return to work on January 4 – following her maternity leave. They both are a tremendous help in the ministry at Prince of Peace Church.
Amy. Amy is in the middle of her senior year at Texas A&M University. She is working towards her education degree. She will be a Fifth Year Senior because she has intentionally taken fewer hours to maintain a good work schedule as well as her ministry with a specific prayer team in Houston. She will be in Guatemala with friends over Christmas break and next fall comes her classroom training.
As always, we are looking forward to next year and the exciting things the Lord has in store for us. We ask His blessings and favor to fall on each of you. May you have a joyous Christmas season and a Happy New Year!
Love and Blessing!
Tom and Kay Schlueter
