July 2014 Newsletter

Greetings from Guatemala!  As the saying goes "all good things must come to an end".  We returned to the mission field last Monday to begin our third term with the IMB.  We had spent seven months in the States.  And what a wonderful seven months those were!  Our feet first hit U.S. soil back on Wednesday, Nov. 20 and we barely slowed down the whole time we were there.  During those months we traveled to five different States- Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Virginia.  We visited 32 different churches and had 26 speaking engagements.  We met many wonderful people along the way and the memories we made will last us a lifetime.  It was an amazing time for our little family and we returned to Guatemala refreshed, encouraged, and eager to get back to work.  We say a big THANK YOU to those of you who prayed for us while in the States and for praying for our readjustment to the mission field.  We are happy to be back home and are getting more settled with each new day. 

We plan to make some visits this upcoming week to the villages where we were working with hopes of getting our Bibles studies back up and going soon.  We have already talked with our contacts over the phone and they are eager to see us.  That is encouraging.

We are excited about an upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic later this month.  We will be attending a mission meeting there with our other IMB colleagues that serve in Central and South America.  We anticipate a great time there for everyone and are especially excited about our boys getting to spend some time with the other missionary kids.  They are going to have a great time- I just know it!

All is well in our little part of the world.  We are looking forward to finding our groove and getting back rolling.  We are thankful to have all of you praying us through this next term.  We are eager to see how the Lord is going to use us over the next 3-4 years.  Your partnering with us through prayer will have a great impact on the Gospel being spread and people coming to know the Lord.  So thanks for praying.  It is such an encouragement to us.  You keep praying, we'll keep serving!
