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 Finished Product

This post is about furniture. Just so you know heading into it. :)

For years I've been dreaming of a particular style of table. Back in the day, I thought I had found said table. The problem? It was around $1900. (And the chairs we're like $100 ea....) So of course, we decided that we'd rather eat than have a table to sit at so I back-burnered that idea.

Well, during a perusal of a thread on the Sonlight forums regarding decorating (why *I* was there we'll never know...) I ran across THIS.

Oh my goodness - it was THE table!!! How handy, we didn't have a table other than the one at the parsonage....so guess what I asked for from my hubby for my birthday and Christmas? :) I have a very creative and handy hubby so he altered where he needed to and created where he wanted to. :)

Here is the finished product and I am tickled pink at the results.

MY table has no nails or screws in it though because Alan wanted to try dovetailing. It's awesome. REALLY, REALLY awesome. He'll be building a bench and a few chairs as we need them. In all his free time of course....:)

So, as you can see, we have plenty of space for visitors. Come on over - we'd love to have you.
