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.

You've Got Mail....

Wonders never cease. :)

Usually our mail sits at the stateside spot until there is a team that is coming this direction and is willing to be the modern day pony express for us. That and the fact that mailing packages here can wind up costing a fortune - on the US side and then again on the foreign side. Ugh - can you say 'DUTIES'?

We've only gotten actual, in the hand, foreign addressed mail 3 times in our time outside the US. One was a Christmas card we got in time for Valentine's day, another was a package from a friend who knows how to stuff a box and use the apartado (foreign PO box) of a close friend, and now....

THIS came last Friday!

It only took 3 1/2 weeks and $7 usd.

I know of another package in transit. This one apparently has chocolate in it so we'll see if it makes it here intact.


Thank you Jim and Elaine - we LOVE the calendar!!

How exciting to get mail :) Glad you received it safely and hope the chocolate gets through too.
