Resting in the USA

Friends,
Each year we have taken some time to be home in Kansas to revive.  This year was a little different.  Dr. appointments revealed Larry needed another stent.  We were home 2 weeks when he had his heart procedure.  We are thankful for the doctors skill who took care of his problem with very little down time. We Praise the Lord for his health.  We have taken a overnight trip to visit friends, but mostly we have enjoyed just being home.

We are flying to the northwest to visit family and churches and friends.  May 8-18th.  Then back to Kansas.  Our trip ends June 15th as we head back to help with the summer Mission Teams at Eagle's Nest.

We are so thankful for Pedro and Felis as they have taken over our position and have done a wonderful job.  We are also thankful for our new Staff members Job and Eva Fuentes and our volunteers, Kinsey and Carly Bykerk.  A really great team.  We have good worker who really care for our 50 children.  God has been very good to us.

Prayer Request:
We are in need of House Parents for our older boys.  We need a couple (with no children at home) who can speak Spanish and have had experience with raising teenagers.  Guatemala or North American this is a prayer concern.  Help us find the right people for this position.  They will need to come as missionaries with their own financial support.  The House Parents can be full time or like host family could stay just 3-6 months.  Please contact us if you or you know anyone interested in helping with this need.

This Sunday Larry had the privilege of preaching in Spanish.  The Spanish Church meets in the old gym of the church located in the building where we surrendered.  The old Messiah Baptist Church.  It was fun to be there and it brought back many memories.  It was a blessing to share the gospel and the friendship of new believers.
