~On Monday evening Bro. Rigoberto and Sis. Ilce's friends John and his wife came over and we had a nice visit discussing lots of passages from the Bible.~
~On Tuesday our family went to downtown historic Cartagena to see the pretty colorful buildings and enjoy some Cartagena food treats. There's a LOT of fun buildings like this in the older part of town.~
~Me...enjoying a snow cone with LOTS of sweetened condensed milk. =) I LOVE snow cones! (I used to sell these at a snow cone stand in LA when I was a teenager...fun memories.) ~

~Then we stopped by a store and picked up a bunch of fruit. This was our next to last night and I wanted to give Sis. Ilce a gift. Since we are going to have to sell/give away most of our things soon...Before I left my house in Bogota', I had chosen my pretty fruit bowl to give to Sis. Ilce to remember me by .
So, we filled it with fruit and she was very happy! Her girls must not get grapes very often for they were THRILLED when they found out that the grapes were REAL! The fruit didn't last long. =) ~
~Tuesday evening we had church. Here we are singing up front. The Lord helped Phillip to preach.~

Part 3 coming up!
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~
