Visitors and Travel

Thank you for taking the time to read our blogs and support this work. We would not be here without the constant support and love of God and those in His body.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21

 We have had a great couple of months.

At the end of February, we had a group of eight come from a church in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They came to encourage us and the church here and do some outreach. They gave a devotional at a lunch we had for university students at our contact center “El Camino”, they took turns opening “El Camino”, helped watch our kids, passed out fliers, and had devotionals with the team. Jonathan Hanegan gave a three-class seminar how Jesus has been portrayed in Latin America and who He really is.  The group was here for about ten days and it was a very nice blessing.

Pilar and Catalina with two cousins

I decided to take my girls to the States and we spent three weeks in Texas with family. It had been three years since seeing family and going to the States and I really didn’t want to wait until another year had passed to go during the summer vacation (December and January). It came together very fast as we didn’t get Catalina her US tourist visa until the end of January and we

left the end of February. The time was wonderful! It was great to not be rushing from city to city and have a chunk of time just with family. Catalina handled all the craziness of international travel and being in a foreign country very well. When ever someone would speak to her (she can only understand simple situational English) her answer was “Umm. Yes.” No matter what was said. It was pretty funny. Pilar really needed this time with family and her cousins and she just absorbed it all in. I was hugely blessed by the conversations I had and the family I saw and was even able to give a class that shared the journey God has taken me on in my life. I’m very thankful to God and others who made this trip possible. We are still planning to go in December of this year and visit churches and supporters along with family.


Us with Fernando and Patricia Sandoval

Coming back to Tarija we were blessed again by visitors. Fernando and Patricia Sandoval came to Tarija for a few days at the end of their trip to Bolivia. They were missionaries in Cochabamba Bolivia for many years and we became close to them during that time. They now live in the States and work with a church there but come often to Bolivia (along with Chile and Argentina) to encourage the churches. Fernando gave a class to the church here on how Jesus related to people. The team

was very encouraged by their visit.

The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything." - Julian of Norwich

May you behold God in your lives today and may thinking about Him bring you joy.
