It seems that from the first of June to the last day of July, our time just flies by! We probably look more like two chickens with their heads cut off than a missionary couple with a sweet little baby! Between our school, non-profit, coffee business, small business ministry, youth group, Sunday school, oh and of course that sweet little baby... we usually stay busy. Add two mission trips with a total of almost 50 gringos, and things get really fun!!
June with Lighthouse
We started off the summer with our third visit from Lighthouse Community Church from Des Moines, Iowa. 17 truly wonderful, God-loving people came to Danlí with one purpose: to serve. What a beautiful thing! This team surpassed everyone's expectations (including their own) with what God was able to accomplish through them in just one week. They shared about Christ in local elementary schools, organized a medical brigade for the children of our school, delivered 100 bags of food to the poor, and made 44 beds for children who would otherwise wouldn't have one. THANK YOU Lighthouse for an amazing trip!
July with Hillside
We were further blessed with a visit from our sister church in Keller, Texas: Hillside Community Church. Hillside has faithfully served Llamado Eterno Church and the city of Danlí since 2004. This year, like every year, was a huge blessing to us and our community. The team of 31 people evangelized to thousands of students at the local high schools and elementary schools, finished the construction of two bathrooms in the church, and organized a soccer tournament, marriage conference, and outreach in the impoverished "Urrutia" community! What an AMAZING week!
August with Family
After a very busy but fruitful ministry season, we were in need of a breather! We are currently back in my hometown, Bartlett, Illinois, visiting family and taking some time to rest and reconnect with each other and loved ones. We were able to take a week long camping trip to the breathtaking Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, a place my family has vacationed for 60 years! We are leaving Monday morning for Danlí and are excited to finish out the year with our beloved church, Llamado Eterno.
As we go back to Danlí, we are preparing to wrap up the school year (I know that sounds odd since here in the States everyone is just starting). We will be entering into our last quarter of the school year and ministry year. It is a great time for us to really focus on building up the ministries of the church we are a part of, primarily the youth group and Sunday School. Please pray as Sean and I work with the youth leadership of both ministries as we train and equip them to serve.
