Welcome to Fall 2019.  We hope and pray you are doing well.  Here are the latest updates from our family and within the Latin America mission

 

 

Ordination Day

 

We just celebrated the ordination of Yban who was called to be a Pastor of the church we attend in the Dominican Republic, Cordero de Dios.  Yban is the third Dominican Pastor ordained in the Dominican Republic.  All five congregations gathered together to celebrate the occasion and there were about 300 people in attendance.  What a joyous occasion.

Iglesia Luterana Cordero de Dios
Our church now has a well!  This summer the church worked to get a well dug so we would have running water on a more regular basis.

Es la Vida
snapshots of our life

 

The girls are in full swing of the new school year.  We have also had an incredibly hot summer.  So to live with the heat we have coped with froyo outings.  Abby is wrapping up her confirmation classes this month and looks forward to being confirmed on Reformation day. Jo is walking, climbing, and wants to be a big girl just like her sisters.
