New year and now blogspot. Teaching old dogs new tricks is not easy. We are now in the "third age" as they call it in Guatemala and we are feeling our age as well as slowing down. God has given us wonderful people to work with, from our local Pastors to the Eagle's Nest ministries. We now have help.
The goal of a missionary is to work himself out of a job. We are trying.
Our plan is to be in the USA Feb 5-June 5th. We would like to visit many of our faithful churches. Our home is in Kansas so we will start there, relax and be happy to visit your church or meet for coffee. We will be in the Pacific Northwest from Mid-April to last of May, so if we could report to your church about what is going on in Guatemala we would love to share.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will head your way.
God is truly blessing our lives and it is such a joy know that souls are being added to our heavenly family, as we partner here on our mountain.
Help us pray for the:
New Birth Baptist Church as it, grows along with our young pastor Nehemias.
They will have VBS this next week. Jan 2-7th. Expecting 200 kids.
Calvary Baptist in San Marcos has broken ground and has started up with the walls.
Seminary is praying for the students for this next year.
Maranatha Baptist in St. Irene is going through a tough time, Pastor's mother-in-law is in a coma since Sept. The family is caring for her at home.
San Jose Caben is growing and we pray for their youth and their testimony.
Jamie's little Bethel Baptist church in Las Majadas continues to struggle and they need a building.
Door of the Pines Baptist has a great group of youth, leading VBS with 160 kids.
Felis and Pedro as they help with the church and school and orphanage. We now have 32 children to raise.
The Block family as they learn the language and culture.
In conclusion, no we are not retiring. We are transitioning. We don't know the future, but we know who hold the future. We are willing and as long as we are able, we think God is not through with us yet.
