2017 has come and gone and it has been an interesting one. We have all had our ups and downs but in all situations, we can all say God has been faithful. One thing I know, no matter what happens in 2018, He will remain faithful.
For us, the most difficultly thing in 2017 was finding out our daughter has autism. It would be difficult for any family but for us, we have to
The year has gone by so fast! We have been on the road a lot during our time here in the states but we are planning to slow down a little in the next month or so. We are looking forward to spending the holidays with our family just before we return to Bolivia. As missionaries, we don’t get to spend a lot of holidays with family so we want to enjoy it while we can.
In our last letter, and also in an extra email we sent out, we asked everyone to pray for some medical issues with our daughter. At the beginning of November we had her evaluated by...
We hope you have had a great summer. This summer has kept us very busy on our furlough. We have had a lot of traveling in the last few months. We have been anywhere from the Norfolk, Virginia area to Dallas, Texas. We have met a lot of new friends and reacquainted with several past friends. This has also been a time that we have been able to spend with family which has been very special our the children. Last month we celebrated our 4th year as missionaries in Bolivia.

What an exciting time to be serving the Lord! With all the

continuing in Bolivia. I just received word last night that
Another two months have come and gone very quickly and we have been very busy.
As you may remember, we had to return from our stateside furlough early to finish our residency paperwork. We are happy to report that after 4yrs of work, we are officially Bolivian residents. This has taken a lot of time and a lot of money. We are happy to have this behind us. However, we have something else we may do.

Hello from the hot and humid jungle of Bolivia! We were able to return to Bolivia in February and have settled back in just fine.
This week we were finally able to start the final process of our residency. Everything seems to be going fine with this. It was MUCH more expensive that we were expecting.
