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.

More Cultural Clashes....

Nothing major - thank goodness.

One - HEAT. Wow - and have we needed it. It's been cold but pushing a button for the temp to go up is a treat! Today it seems the area has decided to pretend it's summer so the sun is out so outside feels dreamy. Inside places w/ AC make for layers but it's good!

Two - Vacation Bible School. Riley came armed and dangerous. (utility knife that is basically like a body part and always on, but BUSTED. I didn't even think about it. Ooops.

Three - Light. As in it doesn't get dark here 'till about 10pm. Plus, it's light at about 5am. We're not used to that anymore (closer to the equator we are) so bedtime went out the window for a few days (week) before mom figured out that you have to look at the clock to tell what time it is and not rely on the natual light. Hmmmm....hadn't seen that one coming.

There are more....but since the blog has been neglected for weeks - I'll save them for another day.

Princess had to adjust to not carrying her utility knife everywhere with her... 'no knives on school property' is of course sensible but still....
