"Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me."
Psalms 103:2

May and June have been filled with many celebrations. First in the middle of May we celebrated moms. Here is a picture of several of the mothers at church. We had a time of snacks and games with them after the regular Sunday evening church service. In Venezuela they celebrate Mother's day just like in the States. God is good and has blessed us with many wonderful women at church. 

On Thursday nights with the kids in La Ceiba we finished our project of "Who are we in Christ?" We ended this time with a game night, it was a series of games that each team had to complete, each activity was planned to reinforce what had been taught in each class through out the project. It was a fun time and the kids learned a lot. 

In June we celebrated all the Fathers at church. The kids read poems during the service and we shared fried rice and juice afterwards. We are also very blessed with these men in the church. God is a good father and we thank Him for all He does for us. 

On June 30th I finished Spanish classes with Ana and Luz. We planned a surprise grill out for them at my house. It was a fun afternoon, many stories of the last two years were told and I said thank you to all those who have put in countless hours of help and support in my language and culture learning. All the glory goes to God. 

Last week we celebrated Guillermo's birthday with lunch together. We are so thrilled to have him here right now and to be able to share this special day with him. 

These past two months I have been able to go to Paso Nuevo several times and spend time with the people of this church. The top pictures of the cactus are from Nuncia and Carlos' house. This cactus only opens its flowers at night, so beautiful. I also tried several different types of mangos at their house, Carlos is my "Professor of mangos" and takes his job very seriously. Please pray for Carlos as he is not a follower of Christ yet. Below is the family of Samuel and Diglis with their infant son Allan. They are young and hungry to learn more about God and his word. Pray for them as they grow in the Lord. 

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Here are a few things for prayer and praise: 
  • Carlos (professor of mangos) salvation
  • Samuel and Diglis
  • Praise for two years of Spanish classes
  • Transition into practicing Spanish in ministry 
  • The kids during their time of vacation
  • The 3 Plan Vacacionals (VBS) that we have coming up
