We have many things to be thankful for:

We serve a merciful God who forgave us of all our sin and has changed us to live for Him and His glory.

We see God working in the hearts of the girls at Torre Fuerte Girls’ Home

God continually watches over us and provides for us (& the Girls’ Home)

We are all in good health (which has been magnified by the loss of so many dear friends in Chelan)

God is in control of EVERYTHING and we can ALWAYS trust Him even when we don’t understand

A few highlights for our family this year included…..

February: Luke & I went home for a 5 week visit (thanks to our good friends!)

We had friends from the US spend Christmas with us in Peru. They surprised us with the best gift of all! Our daughter IMG_2968Katie came for 2 weeks!

 

Even with all the joy & gladness, our hearts were heavy for our loved ones “celebrating” the holidays without their loved ones. We continue to pray for them and we’re thankful that we can be sure that God is watching over them through this difficult time.

We look forward to seeing how the Lord will work in us and through us as we serve Him in Peru throughout the new year!
