~Last Tuesday we were privileged to have a couple visitors over for supper. Several years ago we met Jonathan Nieto from here in Colombia...and we became fast friends. We had him over for dinner and we spoke English with him, because he wanted the practice. You see, he had already been accepted at Hobe Sound Bible College, but was just waiting for his USA visa to be approved. We rejoiced with him when his visa was finally granted to him. We have kept in contact through the years. This summer he contacted us and wanted to get together. The Lord has helped him and in a few days he leaves to go back to the USA...for he only has one year left before he will graduate from HSBC. =) This time when he arrived at our house, he had a friend named Natasha from W. Virginia with him. I served a simple supper of potato soup, muffins and jelly, apple slices, fresh pineapple juice, Southern sweet tea, and jello for dessert. We had a really nice time visiting with them. I was sooo SURPRISED to learn that Natasha's great uncle by marriage is Erwin Bourne, who did a lot of missionary work in the Amazon years ago. What a small world. Our Elijah was beyond HAPPY to have someone to speak English with, and nearly talked Natasha's leg off. =) (Since my niece is named Natasha too, I think his little 3 year old brain got a little confused, ...for once he called Jonathan, "Uncle Daryl". When we explained to him that this wasn't U. Daryl...he got soooo embarrassed. =)~
~We had a great time with Jonathan and Natasha. We are praying that God will bless and guide these 2 young people. =)~
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~
