One Year Ago Today


A year ago today - the last Saturday in October - we left Mexico to bring our youngest son, Logan, to the States to be treated for his medical emergency. Had we known what this year would bring, I think we would have been completely overwhelmed.

Although this year has been one of the hardest in our ministry, being unable to be in the country to which God has called us and yet still endeavoring to fulfill our missionary responsibilites....watching our youngest son suffer....being without a home, etc....still we have felt God's presence with us and have watched Him take the difficult circumstances we've faced and turn them into good for us and not only us, but for the mission field we are serving as well. Satan meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.

Here's a picture of Logan when we brought him out and here's how he looks now. God is good - all the time. We praise Him for healing our son. And we thank so many of you who prayed for him. Your prayer support was what held us up so many times. Thank you.

It has been a rough year, but the Lord has been very faithful.

Although we have never met any of your family, we have faithfully prayed for you, and I have enjoyed following your blog. Thank the Lord for the great things He has done in your lives. Our pastor told us that you all may be coming to speak at our church. We are looking forward to that day.
Thank you for being a true servant of God.
