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.

The hole that no more.....

They came. (6:50 AM)

They saw.

They measured.

They looked again.

They talked.

They left. (7:05 AM)

They said they'd be back at 12 noon.

We didn't believe them. :)

The landlord came over and checked in on things. No muchacho.

Some store in town delivered pieces of ceiling tile. Oops - short one, we'll be right back.

The landlord's brother came over and checked on things. Still no muchacho.

The store truck came back. More ceiling.

The landlord came back. Still no muchacho.

The landlord came back again. Still no muchacho.

Two ladies from somewhere close came by bringing the ladder for the muchacho to use.

5pm the muchacho arrives.

By 6:30 the roof is replaced (sections).

In between all these fun in and out adventures the internet people showed up. :) They had to trace lines from our house to the main server in town to see what the problem was. Someone had cut the line. Apparently this is fairly common. Someone wants a phone line; they just cut one that's already up there to make space for theirs. Hmmmmm....

Anyway - after a fashion it was working again. Then all the excitement was just too much for my computer and it locked up and died. Normally this wouldn't have bothered me a ton but I lost about 2 hours worth of data entry....nuts.

So - we are reconnected. Covered. Back in business.

I am thankful for technology....

You would think after all of the bad experience I have had with losing info, I would have learned my lesson: save and save a back-up. Nope, something always gets lost. Sorry you lost data. Glad your hole was fixed.
