We are Chile Bound. And so thankful.

In a few hours, we are headed to Temuco, Chile to assist with a youth camp that is sponsored by a local church there. If you are like us, you have no idea where Temuco is! As you can see on the map, it is about four hours south of Santiago. It is currently summer there, and on a typical day the temperatures range from the mid 50’s to the 80’s.

We are so excited to serve. We are like kids on Christmas morning…. this is something we have been greatly anticipating and today is the day!!  Of course this day would not be possible without our ministry partners – those who have committed to pray for us and to financially join us in this adventure. I wish I had words bigger than “thank you!” Each of you is such a blessing to us and to our kids. We thank God for you and pray for you often.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity,
but of power, love, and self-discipline.”  2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)

A few ways you can join us in prayer….

  1. There are many unknowns about where and how we will be serving. We do not want to be fearful… we want to love big and give of ourselves sacrificially. Also, pray that we will have no timidity in sharing the Gospel. May we proclaim with boldness the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. 
  2. Pray that the camp will have great attendance and that everyone there will be healthy and able to participate.  We are praying that God will bring people that need to hear the Gospel – praying that hearts will truly be forever changed. May God show up in a big way in this short week. 
  3. Of course, please pray for our health and safety. This will be our kids first time overseas (and even on a plane for one of them). Pray that God blinds their eyes from things that are harmful and opens their hearts to serve others with joy. 

Thank you for loving us well through prayer. We give thanks for you often and are so thankful for your partnership!
