Dear Praying friends,

There is no real way to describe what it is like to be in a different church almost every Sunday morning, Sunday night and Wednesday evening.  It has been good, and God has provided for us every step of the way as well protected us every mile that we have traveled.  We have been in a few new churches and have had several churches let us know that they plan on picking us up for support.  Continue reading

Dear Praying friends,

It is hard to believe we have been back in the States for 6 months already.  Our hearts are still missing our dear friends in Peru but we are anxious to get to where God has placed a new burden on our hearts, the country of Italy.  It seems like each time we present our ministry at a church my heart is newly overwhelmed for the great need in the country of Italy.  We would love to skip this whole furlough/deputation process and leave tomorrow, but we understand the need to raise more support so we can effectively reach the people of Sicily.

Dear Praying Friends,

We were excited this year to be able to spend time with family during Christmas and New Years. During the months of November and December schedules for missionaries usually slow down.  This has been a nice change of pace. We have been able to visit family and spend some needful time catching up on life in general.  Although we did miss all the church activities we are usually busy with in Peru. Please continue to pray for the work in Peru. Continue reading

Dear Praying Friends,

Psalms 126:3 “The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
Over the last year we have seen and experienced this verse to be true.  Many times we say “God is good”  but do we really stop to think just how good He is?  Are we really truly glad?
Since returning to the States at the beginning of September we have been on a nonstop train that continues to plow forward.  Continue reading

Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

We are excited and sad to be back in the States. The last month has been a flurry of activity.  August started with Pastor Erik moving to Cajamarca.  Praise the Lord, that was a blessing for us.  We then had to start searching for tickets to the USA as well as tickets for our survey trip to Italy.  Next up was our daughters 15th birthday party.  The traditional ‘Quinceanera’ is a big deal in South America.  Given Rachel & Rebekah had spent most of their lives in Peru we decided to celebrate their 15th birthday the traditional way.  We didn’t invite a lot of people by their standards, however hosting 50 people for their birthday party was a lot for us.  It was quite a formal todo with all the trimmings.  There were invitations, formal dresses to be worn, decorations to put up, dinner, music, formal presentations, as well as cake.  It was a big production and enjoyed by all.
