A Summer Full of Fun

We spent about 3 1/2 weeks in July and August visiting family and supporters in Texas. It was good to see many of you. Our family visited supporters in Lubbock, Amarillo, Amherst and Petersburg. We also spent good time at the Schroeder farm in Amherst and in Lubbock with the Burris family.

This summer was landmark for our family in that the older girls, Morgan and Natali got their license to drive. Old Blue is still serving us on the farm as a good practice car!
We had a great time reconnecting with old friends, eating homemade ice cream and relaxing.

The Gossett family who were part of our original team in Guadalajara came for an afternoon visit. Their boys, Caleb and Aden had a blast with all the cousins in the the cow tank.

When we returned to Guadalajara we packed up the house and moved to a different place with lots of spill out room into the garden.

We met the first Sunday back with the house church in Mariano Otero. Many of you might remember the video of Angelina's baptism in the waterfalls of Tala a few years back. She fell and broke her leg several weeks ago and is bedfast. The church has met around her bed for the last few weeks. Here is Angelina with her granddaughter Carlita, Ceci, and Aime.

Across the street from our house lives Sara. This is Ceci, with Sara and Polly perched on top.

This past weekend some of the ladies enjoyed a sleep over without kids at our house. We enjoyed each others company as we talked, sang, watched a movie, made pizzas and worshipped together.

God continues to bless us in many ways.
Thank you for your partnership and prayers!

Our prayer is that God and God's Kingdom come more powerfully and more obviously to to Mexico and to all of our lives!
