We had friends over for a meal made mostly by our friend, Rafa. Thank you, Rafa, for Pollo a la Pina!

Our friends, Andrew, LaRee, Eliana, Caleb and Arizona Eby, from La Ceiba visited us on their way to Nicaragua for a visa run.

one example of God's creativity

This is the same butterfly as above.
Sorry for the out of focus picture, but it was the best we could get because it kept closing its wings and then it flew off.

E.C.A. Christmas





We had a great time with Danilo, Mirna, Mirian, Kelly, Skarleth and Vanessa, a friend of Skarleth. 

We thank God for the opportunity that he has given us to share in these young peoples' lives. May God guide and lead them always and bring them ever closer to him. May the miracle of Christ's birth, death and resurrection be made more real and true to each one of us. May we always seek his wisdom and strength to share the love of Christ with each person he brings into our lives.

 Merry Christmas!

mission field

"If you think you have come to the mission field because you are a little better than others, or as the cream of your church, or because of your [qualifications], or for the service you can render the church, or even for the souls you may see saved, you will fail. Remember, the Lord has only one purpose ultimately for each one of us, to make us more like Jesus. He is interested in your relationship with Himself. Let him take you and mould you as He will; all the rest will take its rightful place."                                  -emphasis added
                -spoken by Jack Scholes and quoted in Give Me This Mountain by Dr. Helen Roseveare
