2005 Year In Review
January

A Message from Jonathan Kieswetter
President, Grace Capital Group

We trust you are enjoying the fruits of your labor and the blessings bestowed upon you this past year; lest we not forget that it was a difficult year for our soldiers and our fellow Americans along the Gulf Coast.

2005 was a record year for Grace Capital during which we closed over $210 Million in debt, mezzanine financings, equity and investment structures comprised of land, income properties and residential developments. We expect 2011 to be an even stronger year with a projected $70 Million in closings for the 1st Quarter.

Although we use our successes to calibrate our abilities, it is our trials in life that truly mold and shape us as individuals; "Consider it pure joy my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
James 1:2-4.

So as we go forward into the New Year with our business plans in hand, may we reflect on the past year's successes and difficulties, to encourage one another and grow from our experiences; "As iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another" Proverbs 27:17.

I would like to personally thank our clients, lenders, and investors for a successful 2005 and look forward to working with you in 2011 as we grow and encourage one another together. May you be richly blessed in family, friends, and business in this New Year.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the suffering families who have lost loved ones in Iraq and those affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma along the Gulf Coast.

Blessings for a prosperous New Year!

Inspiration

No country has been so much favored, or should acknowledge with deeper reverence the manifestations of the divine protection. An all wise Creator directed and guarded us in our infant struggle for freedom and has constantly watched over our surprising progress until we have become one of the great nations of the earth.
