We rang in the New Year in Kansas. Cold weather and all it was good. Our family went through so many changes. Felis and Pedro were holding down the fort at Eagle's Nest, Ginger and Todd were happy in their Kansas life and then change happened, they are now in the Seattle area. (new church, new school and new friends.) Vicki made plans to help out and get revived in Guatemala, and Daniel and Cindy stayed firm in Kansas, helping us with our stateside obligations. We have always said that we need to be flexible, but referring to other people who come to Guatemala, not thinking that 2011 was our year to be very flexible.
The economy has hit hard everywhere, but God continues to meet our need and those of our ministries.
Our churches have had a rough year, but each Pastor reports growth. Soul winning and adding to the churches is the Mission of Every Believer. The Seminary has graduated 2 great young men this year who have jumped in to complete the Great commission. We are so thankful for Nehemias who is pastoring here at Eagle's Nest, with the help of Larry and Pedro. The load is great, and the church is growing.
The missions and churches we oversee have showed their faithfulness. Some are building, some are training young people, some are reaching out. The Manna feeding program has produced new believers, who are now taking turns ministering to the children. The Christian school Nuevo Día has shown growth in number and in spirit. The children's home has been a challenge, with mostly older children who have rough backgrounds, but with lots of prayer and the dedication of our Staff and workers, we have seen spiritual growth as well. All of our older children have made professions of faith this year 2011.
We had a record number of Church Work Teams come and help this year. They have done physical work to improve the property, and ministered to our local children. The adults, had outreach programs in the nearby communities. What a blessing.
We have room for more groups in 2012. A mission work team will add a new perspective to your church. Since we are now "Flexible" we can adapt any kind of a Mission Work Team you desire for your church. Youth, Silver Sneaker's, Construction, Ministry, VBS, Sewing, Orphans and Widows, Disaster Relief. Or maybe just a "Retreat / Survey Trip" See the sights, culture, and ministries of "The Boggs Ministry in Guatemala, fashioned to fit your group. Rustic or Luxury?
This is your mission, we are your hands and feet on the field. Come and See what your funds are doing.
Thank you for your faithful support.
