Our Purpose

- to know God and use our entire lives in service to Him.

- to stand in the gap through prayer, giving and service to viable ministries in Latin America.

- to be transparent helpers of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, using our resources and skills that through the Holy Spirit, we might encourage and equip those who have less.

- to share a living perspective from Latin America to our churches, friends and family in the states and beyond.

Back home again

Back home in Madera after a month and change of jetsetting to the motherland. The time away was great. For those just joining us, we spent some time visiting Faith’s sister in Portugal, and included a week seeing Seville and exploring a bit of Andalucia, in the south of Spain. We saw castles, cathedrals and museums, drank coffee, ate great food, and spent a very little time at the beach amoungst all the clouds and rain. Faith was disappointed because of the cold and wet. Then we spent a week and a half in Washington State, where we visited family and a lot of friends, and had – no, no, you’ll never guess – cold and wet. Then we flew to Phoenix, and El Paso, and the Chihuahuan desert of Mexico, where we seem to have finally outrun the cold. Yet we have wet; the drive to Madera saw a number of heavy thunder showers, and it has rained here just about every night since – it looks as though the rainy season is arriving early this year. At least for us.

Though for all the rain, it seems the dust in Madera has been alive and well up until our arrival here. Here’s a picture of our window sill when we got home. Just to clarify, this is on the inside of the house.
