Vacation Bible School! We had Vacation Bible School (VBS) this week in our home. Yes, you read that right, IN OUR HOME! Now most of you may have already had VBS in your church, or you will have it soon, but we got to be a part of the VBS from Hobe Sound, FL. They live-streamed their VBS (with the Bakers as their workers,) so people like us that live far, far away got to "attend" their VBS! It was so nice, for you see my sister Kimberly, and my brother, Noah, and I didn't even know what a VBS was. We left on missionary deputation when I was 3, and then the last 2 summers we have been out of the USA, so we could not attend any VBS's. My brother (3) even called it "GBS" instead of "VBS". My Mommy said that Hobe Sounders would DIE if they knew that their VBS had been called by that name. HA! =D My Mommy would have us memorize the verse each night of VBS, then once we could say it by memory to her, we got to get in our goodie box, that's filled with all kinds of fun little things, and get a prize. Some nights we had a little trouble with the VBS coming through OK, so we'd bow our heads and pray, and God would fix it for us, and we got to finish listening to it! Isn't our God a Great, and Caring God? We would like to thank God and Hobe Sound for making this VBS available for we missionary kids way over here in Colombia, S. America. We loved the continued story "Rod and REEL Trouble", the songs, the Bible stories, the competition between the girls and boys,...WE LOVED IT ALL, and we felt like we were there (well almost!!! =)~Us listening (and watching) very intently to the VBS!~
Dec. 18th, 2015 found us coming back to the U.S.A. from South America, but to continue working as full-time missionaries with our mission. With our Children's age, we have been planning for years to come back at this time. We remain under appointment with Global Holiness Mission to continue serving Colombia and Argentina. We will be making trips to teach, preach, and disciple the nationals on the fields. Now that we are serving our people with missions trips from out of the States, we will also be ministering via digital and written ministry in Spanish and English for those that are on the field. We so appreciate all of y'all's prayers for us! None of this would be possible if it weren't for a team effort of you and others like you. God has been doing great things, let's ask and expect more from Him!

You are welcome to take a peek into our exciting lives! We have served Jesus for nearly 8 years in Colombia and nearly 2 years in Argentina! Now that we are serving our people with missions trips from out of the States, we will also be ministering via digital and written ministry in Spanish and English for those that are on the field. We so appreciate all of y'all's prayers for us! None of this would be possible if it weren't for a team effort of you and others like you. God has been doing great things, let's ask and expect more from Him! We are a close family that loves to do things together. Those things include sharing God's love, going places together, baking and having company, singing, and thanking God for each moment! We are delighted with our 6 sweet children with which God has blessed us, and love being a "team" for Jesus! ~Heather~
