October/ November 2011 Newsletter

Greetings from Guatemala!  I think October was the first month since being on the mission field that we did not send out an update.  We traveled (in-country) the last two weeks of September, and then headed to the States the first of October for a three week vacation. We were away from home almost six weeks total.  We just did not take the time to sit down and write.   We did have a wonderful time in the States with family and friends.  We loved for Cruz to get to know them and spend time with them.   We just wish it had not gone by so fast!  In case you have not heard, we surprised our families with the news that we are expecting baby #2 in late April 2012.  We are very excited and cannot wait to find out what we are having.  We hope to do that at the end of this month.  I have had some complications already, but they seem to be clearing up.  Please keep this pregnancy, my health, and the growth and development of this baby in your prayers. 
We returned home to find everything we own completely covered in mold.  We have spent this whole week trying to clean and wash everything.  It covered all of our furniture, bedding, the floors, pots, pans, utensils, our clothes, etc.  It was a disgusting mess, and has exhausted us trying to get it cleaned up.  Guatemala received a lot of rain while we were gone and much of the country has dealt with flooding and landslides.  We are thankful that our house did not flood (or get broken in to) but there are a lot of areas in our town that are still under water.  Please pray for those that have been affected by this years rainy season. 
We have a few things lined up for the month of November.  David already attended a two day pastor's conference here in Sayaxche.  Sunday is the Presidential elections here in Guatemala.  Pray that it will be a peaceful process.  Next week we will be having a prayer service at the mission in La Libertad.  The mission there is growing and good things are starting to happen there.  That is a blessing!  We plan to make a trip to the Chorti area soon.  David will be helping with another recording for the Kekchi radio stations this month. We plan to spend Thanksgiving with our IMB mission family.  We are looking forward to a good time of fellowship with all of them.
It was great to see many of our prayer supporters while we were home on vacation.  We wish we could have visited with all of you and thanked you in person for praying for us.  It does mean so much to us and we cannot express that enough!  Until next time...
Sending our love,
David, Regina, and Cruz
Your Missionaries to Guatemala
