Happy New Year! Are you ready for more opportunities for victory this year?
Speaking of victory, this January 13 marks our 20th year in Paraguay! Can you believe it? We have experienced some real challenges over the years, but God has always been faithful and the enemy hasn’t been able to send us home defeated! We know that that fact is only true due to your endless prayers and support over the years, thank you.
This January has found us in Colorado, Texas, Nebraska, and Arkansas. It really does seem strange to ‘still be in the States’, but we are enjoying the time that God has given us. This is the first time in the 20 years that we have taken an extended time to rest and refuel spiritually. As most of you know, we returned to the States because of our oldest son Brent’s health. (The pain continues, but our hope and faith for his healing is strong.)
We have taken advantage of this season to attend church services and sit under the anointing of the teaching of the Word. One blessing was when we headed to Texas to join Pastors Clarence & Marion Wright and Doctor Keith and Debbie Spanberger in attending the 2012 Kenneth Copeland Minister’s Conference in Dallas. What a joy it was to ‘soak in the Word’, see old and make new friends, and renew our calling to the people of Paraguay.
Yes, 20 years sounds like a long time, but we feel that God says that there is still more to be done… hey, let’s do it together!
