We apologize for the lack of updating everyone. We have been so busy these past couple weeks. The “mission team” season is among us, which means we have many visitors. In the beginning of April we had a team from our church here. A group of 10 wonderful ladies dove right in and evangelized to the many children and youth of our ministry. We were blessed to have them here and they left some major impacts on the people they witnessed to. Thanks NCCTK team!
Mi Casa Es Su Casa
We then had a couple girls staying in our home. Molly (from Bellingham) and Brenna (from Vancouver, BC) have been working at the Orphanage Emmanuel for a couple months, located a few hours from us. They wanted to see a bit of our ministry and just help us out where help was needed. So they stayed with us for 4 nights. I was glad to give them a bit of a reprieve from their busy schedules at the orphanage, and they were able to bless us as well. They did the dishes for me a lot and even babysat Asher. We also painted a bit, went to the maternity hospital, and spent time with the girls from the Eagle’s Nest. Thanks Molly and Brenna!
Mi Hermano y Su Esposa
The day the girls left we picked up my brother Travis and his wife Allison from the airport. They wanted to come and visit and see what we do in our ministry. They have been huge supporters and we are so excited to have them here. I love these two people and I love seeing how God has been working in their lives. I know they have been touched by their experience here and I am sad to see them leave this week. But I am so thankful they could come and visit!
Los Padres de Chad
We will leave on Friday to bring Trav and Al to the airport. We will then be back at the airport on Easter Sunday to pick up Chad’s parents! We feel so blessed to have family come and visit. They are of course coming to just spend time with us, but I think they are most excited to see their grandson We plan on showing them the ministry and hopefully try and get away to the beach for a break. So hurry up and get here already Jim and Laurie!
So as you can see we have been and continue to be busy. We have more teams in May, one of which is from NCCTK, and also some more friends that are planning on coming this summer. We will also be leaving for Michigan on July 12 for my best friends wedding. Then, on July 18, we will be headed to Washington to spend a month or so at home. We plan on spending time with family and friends, and also hope to get a fundraiser activity in their somewhere too. So July will be here before we know it! And staying so busy helps the time go by fast. Thanks again everyone for supporting us and praying for us. We appreciate you!
