February 2018 Newsletter

The Whites Update
 February 2018
We had a slight change of plans since our last update.  In our January newsletter we were getting ready to return to Guatemala.  I did not get medical clearance and we were delayed.  Instead, I spent the month having some medical tests and blood work done.  We are currently still in the States.

On Monday of this week I had my follow-up appointment.  All of my tests came back clear and I was released from my doctor.  We submitted the results to our mission medical department and I have now been given clearance by them to return to the mission field. That was awesome news to hear.  We are now checking flights and making arrangements to go back.  We plan to do that mid-month.

Pray for us as we begin to pack, say our goodbyes, and return to Guatemala.  We are excited to get back to our ministry there but at the same time our hearts are heavy to leave family and friends behind.  It is very bitter sweet.
Some highlights of the past month include taking the boys to a Monster Jam event, attending a local circus, spending the afternoon on a farm with some homeschool friends, numerous trips to the local library, another snow day, and more opportunities to attend worship with family and friends. In spite of our setback it was a good month.
Prayer Requests...
We were excited to receive this photo recently of the church building in Nearar. We are ready to get back and worship with our group there.  Pray for this village and that the work there would grow.

Continue to pray also for the village of Muyurco that we would be able to find an alternate meeting place and continue our weekly Bible study there.

We are anxious to get back and revisit all of the villages that we were targeting.  Pray for us as we begin to do that later this month.  Pray that we would see progress and have a clear vision for going forward in each of those areas.
Hopefully our next update will be from Guatemala.  We look forward to having you alongside us in prayer as we return and get back to the work that God has called us to do. It is a joy and honor to go and serve.  Thank you Southern Baptists for making it possible.

  1. I'll pray for you! Happy that you received medical clearance. I was looking over my old OLD blog (I have a newer one now!), and saw your comment. I want to reconnect with some of my blog commenters from years gone by!
