September 2014 Newsletter

Greetings from Guatemala!   We've been back from the States now for two months and I feel like I'm starting to catch my breath some and feel back at home.  A lot has happened in these two short months.  The month of August was all about getting back into the groove of things.  We got both of our Bible studies back going and actually did four this past month.  We had two in the village of Nearar and two in the village of Lagunetas.  Both are doing well and it felt like we picked right up where we left off.  It was hard to imagine that it had been eight months since we taught in both areas. 

In addition to our Bible study time David was in the village of Lagunetas twice with the Ag team from Honduras making some visits and checking on projects.  We are thankful for the way the Ag work has helped open the door for us to teach in that village and also for our Honduran Ag partner, Noe, who faithfully came over to continue our Bible study while we were in the States.  I think that helped us being able to transition back to it so easily. 

We are also looking to partner with a local former pastor in this area Bro. Javier who has a desire to help us get an open door in the village of Tunuco Arriba.  He and David made a trip there in August to make some visits.  When the Lubeck's (Chorti Bible Translation Team) return from the States we will all begin visiting there together.  It seems as though we are getting an open invitation to begin a work in the school with the children and possibly begin a ladies Bible study there.  Would you join us in praying for the timing and details of both of these?

We made a visit to the village of Chanco to meet with a believer who lives there about starting a Bible study group in that village.  One of the U.S. Partnerships we will be taking over is with this village.  They will be sending down a team in October to work alongside of us there.  Our goal for that week is to get an open door to begin teaching there and to spread the word about it to the locals.  Would you join us in praying for a new Bible study group to get started in that village?

Family wise we are all doing great.  Cruz started back to Spanish preschool last month and is really enjoying it.  We celebrated David's birthday last month with a fun family trip to Esquipulas, Guatemala.  We love going out into the villages and being on mission as a family.  We are blessed to be able to do that together.  Continue to lift us up as we continue to serve Him here among the Chorti of Guatemala.  Your prayers are a great source of encouragement to us.
