What a difference a year makes!

May 18 will always be a special date on our missions journey. It was the date last year that we invited our church family to join us for a dinner at Roger & Caroline Lee’s to hear our plans for our ministry here in Costa Rica.

Speaking at the May 18 dinner (left) and earlier this month before a day at language school in San Jose (right).

On that beautiful Sunday afternoon, we dreamed that God might supply the necessary funds to be ready to leave in April 2015. He did just that. We shared our prayer that 100 families and individuals would join our team of prayer and financial partners. Today, we are joined by more than three times that number.

We were also very clear – we can not do this alone. It must be a true partnership. Over the past year, many of you have answered that call. This journey is a true partnership and we are deeply thankful for the many who were there on May 18, 2014 and the many more who have joined us since.

As we said at the time, we are delighted to be striving “side by side” in the cause of the gospel with you all.

    Wow! What a difference a year makes! It is so good that the Lord has cared for you and brought you safely to CR. Language school can really be tough, especially with the family. Give it your best shot.

    Will you be up for the EFCA conference to meet with your cohort? It will be good to see you again. Lord willing, we hope to come your way toward the end of August. We really want to meet the rest of the family! You have spoken so highly of Melanie and are anxious to get to know she and the children.

    Would you like to connect in a Skype call this coming week some time?

    May the Lord continue to give you the grace you need for all the adjustments to CR, the language, the culture, and learning how to life and thrive there.

    Blessings on you,
