What We Do

My photo
We are non-denominational missionaries working with pastors, churches, schools, and the local hospital in Chiquimula, Guatemala. We host training seminars for pastors, leaders, and youth from rural areas and we help supply the congregations with Biblical materials to minister to their communities. We are currently building a Ministry Center to host the events. We visit several public schools to share a Biblical story and play with the kids. We also pray in the local hospital and give out toys, toiletries, and Biblical materials. Ways to Be a Part of this Ministry: Come - We need pastors and leaders to come and teach these pastors and leaders here in Guatemala. Or you could bring a group to work in the churches or schools with construction or evangelism.

Short Update - Yes!

Welp...this is going to be short. We are praying for y'all and love keeping up with some of y'all through facebook and email! We are praying for our country as well! May God's kingdom come and His will be done during the elections! And be sure to shine God's light and love as you live out each day for the world to see and glorify God in heaven! Good stuff!
We had two pastor seminars within a month period at the new ministry facility here in El Morral! We have been living in our new house for two weeks! It is so awesome! It is cooler here and away from the city and noise! We are so thankful and happy...love being here with the folks and seeing their reactions to having North Americans living here. And I ain't shy...I go around talking and getting to know them. Loving it! The kids love the house! Said it was the best house ever! Praise God! And the seminars were inspiring! Some of the pastors shared about how they were at that point of feeling abandoned, alone, and exhausted, but now they were leaving feeling inspired, encouraged, and ready to go at it again! That's what we pray and look for! God is good! Thank all of y'all for giving and praying so that they can be encouraged and grow in the knowledge of God! 
We have almost finished the second dorm and bathroom! Can you believe it!? We are getting to that point of laying the floor tile and installing the toilets and windows. The floor will cost $1,500 to finish, and the bathroom and windows will cost another $1,500. Please be praying for the ministry so we can get this next phase finished and start using the dorm and bathroom during the seminars. Right now we are teaching, sleeping, and eating in the one finished dorm room...but it's still so nice! The next process will be getting the roof for the auditorium put on. That will be $3,700. We don't have this but really need help getting these next phases finished so we can keep going with the smaller little by little costs in getting the walls and floors done for the auditorium. Be praying with us and watch what God will do! He is so faithful and good! And we pray blessings for all y'all that have helped and will continue to help the ministry and these pastors and their communities. 
Well...I'm older...and Brandi is getting older this coming Wednesday and then Mary Kathleen will be older this coming Sunday...dadgum! Going by fast! Thank y'all for your birthday wishes! We had a great time this past week with Brandi's parents here, Keith and Kathy. The kids loved seeing their Paw Paw and Maw Maw! And we loved sitting and talking and spending time with them! God is good and sure blesses us with the little things in life! We are so grateful! 

Well...that's all for now! Love y'all and are so thankful to have y'all as a part of our lives and as co-laborers in the ministry here in Chiquimula! God bless!!
