One Year in Paraguay!

Today we celebrate one year of ministry in Paraguay!  I am so thankful to the Lord for how much this country and her precious people have worked their way into my heart already!  I can honestly say I love it here!

Best Swing

Three moves, learning a new culture and ministry, one major health crisis and 4 extra kiddos made this a busy and challenging year to say the least, and yet I wouldn’t trade what CHRIST has done in me through it all.  I pray that He will continue to increase in my heart and somehow use me to make Him known here in Paraguay.   

Thank you so much for your love, prayers and support over the past year!  I am so thankful for every single one of you who read my blog!   

Also, I hope to get back to blogging regularly again soon.  I have really missed it!  Thanks for your patience while I finish getting settled in house number three and also host some family visiting from Colombia and the United States.  I’ll be back soon with pictures of our new home!

Congratulations Shilo! What a wonderful milestone for you and your family. You all look super! Isn't it powerful to look back and see God's faithfulness; just after one short year you've faced so many interesting (and challenging) situations.

Sorry about another move! No fun. The only thing I like about a new place is the challenge to tackle the job of making it our home (which always takes tons of time and energy...) Blessings on you friend.
