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 Confusion

Actually this has more to do with the 'little' details in our lives.

Alan was talking on the phone the other day to someone about this and that and as we were in the car - people were overhearing his side of the conversation.

"Yes, we're in New Mexico these days" (talking about our US address)

"Right, our cell number has a Hawaii area code." (our stateside cell phone)

"Actually we LIVE in Mexico...yes, the country." (our actual physical residence for most of the time)

"Our skype phone number is a Washington area code." (computer phone that rings us in Mexico through a local Vancouver number)

Hang up.

Little voice peeps up from the back seat, "I thought we were in COLORADO!"

"Actually dear, we're traveling through UTAH."


Complicated I tell ya.
