A Summer Break in the USA

Daughter bodyboarding at the beachWe recently returned from a summer visit to the USA. Maribel visited with childhood friends in Boston. She had a wonderful time reacquainting with them and experienced camping and water parks. I had desired for our daughter to experience the summertime in the south so Catherine and I visited with her grandparents in Virginia. God provided the perfect opportunity for her to do just that. She swam in pools, went body boarding in the ocean, and visited...

Christian Academy of Guatemala CAG – Revelations TV Episode

For two years now, our daughter has been blessed to attend a Christ centered school here in Guatemala that was established forty years ago to educate missionary kids (MK's). The unique thing about CAG is that the teachers are voluntary full-time missionaries, themselves. So they see their students as the mission field and genuinely love them and help them grow as people. Our ministry is partnering with Christian Academy of Guatemala to help find more volunteer teachers who are called to come and serve these awesome children in Guatemala. Below...

Doors Opening for Future Eyeglasses Outreaches

eyeglassesWe're excited about a door that God may be opening for our ministry to help facilitate and distribute new eyeglasses to some of the poorest rural communities of Guatemala.

A Message From a Missionary – A Mother’s Love!!

I couldn't wait to write this little note, because God used a mother's love yesterday to teach me a lesson that I will not soon forget. I was in a dental clinic yesterday, to encourage and share God's love with families of children born with cleft lip and cleft palate. The doctor asked me to speak privately with a mother and her fifteen year old son. During the conversation it came out that the mother has been suffering with breast cancer, has had both breasts removed and is in the...

Serving More Cleft Families

Yesterday, I had the privilege to attend a followup session for cleft lip and cleft palate patients with our friends from Clinica Dental Familiar. Their office is here in Guatemala City but families travel from all over Guatemala to come for the free consult to adjust their child's obturator and receive instruction from the staff. I knew that the family of the newborn baby had their appointment later in the morning, but I felt led to be there during the entire session. After being there for...

Spring 2014 Update From Guatemala + New Website, Email Address..

hammockI just want to start off by saying God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

That was more than sixteen years ago and twelve of those years I've spent serving the Lord full-time in Guatemala and three other Central American...
