By the time you read this, we will be back in Guatemala after a precious visit with friends and family for most of the holiday season. The CUMC team will be here for their 12th year of mission with the people of Guatemala and Project Salud y Paz. It will be an exciting and busy time. The joy and honor of hosting the CUMC team has been something we’ve looked forward to and it is very important to share God’s call for us with this team. Please, keep the CUMC team in your prayers as they once again serve the Guatemalan people. Pray that they can clearly see God’s vision for each of them in their individual lives through this trip. I know that it can happen!
We are nearing the end of our first year here in Guatemala and it feels like we have only just begun. We are deeply grateful for all of you who have been supporting us with your thoughts, prayers and gifts. We are blessed. Please keep us in your prayers as we follow God’s call on our journey here. Pray that we continue to see, hear, feel and know God’s guidance in our service throughout this second year. There is so much that we can accomplish with God’s and your help.
