Dear Mabelvale family: 
Tia and I wanted to send you a final note of appreciation as our support and period of transition back to the States comes to an end. Over the past few months, we have searched for ministry roles, entrepreneurial ideas and other career paths in trying to determine the direction that would be the most functional for our family and our service to the Lord. We are happy to report that I accepted a consulting position as a software developer for a small Denver based company that will allow me to work from home. It was not the direction I originally planned to take, but it will enable us to live as close as possible to my parents in Searcy and to serve with a congregation in the area. We are excited about the opportunity and answered prayers and are so grateful to all of you for your partnership, support and prayers over the past 12 years. We really cannot express how much of a blessing you have been to us and to those in Italy. We plan to continue our involvement in the work there as much as we are able, and we look forward to visiting with you from time to time. May God continue to bless you for your commitment to Christ and your love for the lost. Love in Christ, 
Jeff, Tia, Ameleah, and Davis Brauer.


This note is long overdue. Thank you so much for the love you have shown me the past six months. From overwhelming me with gifts when I arrived, to making me feel like I belong, and a part of this family. You all have shown me the love of Christ. Thank you. Noah.
