Resting and Painting and Computer Workshops

This time of revival for these old missionaries has been wonderful.  Not only are we getting to rest,  we have visited churches and shared what is going on in Guatemala with the Lord ministry there.

                                                                                                                                                                    Larry has worked on cars, exercised, attended computer workshops, visited the Oklahoma City memorial  and had time to work on sermons.  In addition we visited family and friends.

Claire has rested, visited friends, reported at churches, worked on the computer, attended computer workshops, and taking a water color painting classes and loved on the grandkids.

We will be ready to go back to work June 1st.

While we are away Our kids Felis and Pedro Patlan, and Amy and Todd Block are keeping things under control with the ministry.  We are so thankful for the help.  God bless and protect them while we are resting.  

Resting a very important time of day.

It is a load off our minds to know that someone is holding down the fort while we are away.

We are being revived.  Thank you for your prayers.

What Happened to February?

Larry and I are enjoying the US.  The weather has been delightful, even though we were hoping for snow. (no snow yet)
The purpose of our trip to Kansas was to rest a while.  Then we were to enjoy friends and family and visit a few churches.  So far we have been able to meet with many of our "Old" friends.  It is fun catching up.  And we will visit a few churches and just be filled listening to great preaching.

While we are away the "Mice" are still working hard in Guatemala. Felis and Pedro and the Block family are holding down the fort.   They are hosting teams and keeping the construction moving along.  It is an added stress to keep the school and home and constructions and visitors all happy and busy.  Sound like that is all being accomplished and we are proud of our "Temporary Replacements" or you might say they are doing on the job training for both families.  Thanks !

Please pray for the new struggling church at Eagle's Nest,  there are so many needy families.  They also need the Lord.
The devil is trying very hard to defeat and discourage our young pastors and leaders in our churches.  They all need Christ's arms of protection around them.  January we saw victory,  February we heard of "discord among the Brothers".   We pray for Spiritual and Physical Growth.
