Let the Work Begin...

Today, Tim Zimmerman and Jordan Newman (both WGM "missionary kids") started helping on the repainting of the house / youth center. They have a pretty substantial task ahead, so pray they stay the course.I emptied the kitchen to make way for construction workers coming in tomorrow to give the cabinets and counter tops some seriously needed attention.

I was in the office this morning and stopped by the school as even during school "break" there's plenty to keep me busy.

Missionary Retreat 2008 ...

We just returned from our annual missionary retreat for the WGM - Bolivia missionary group. Including the special speaker, other missionary guests and all the kids, there were 70 of us in attendance.
Pastor Dave Engbrecht of Nappannee Missionary Church spoke to us from John 14-17. The series on "Intimate Conversations" with Jesus to His disciples, was timely & pertinent to our group. God's Spirit was evident through the music ministry, preaching, and time "away" from the normal routine of life and ministry.Thank you for your prayers during this event. Our time together was refreshing as well as relaxing.
