We are in country

Just a quick note to let you all know that we have arrived in Guatemala. It was quite a long trip but we are here. This is such a beautiful place and I know the Lord is going to bless our time here. Just continue to pray that God will use us and guide our steps.

videos & Guatemala trip prayer requests

This is a video of Evan with his daddy on Father's Day.
Here's Evan's new trick. You can see that he is sticking his tongue out on part of this one.
Well, I guess this is all for now. I have more to put on later and I know I'll have some pictures from Guatemala as well. I'm actually leaving in just a few hours after a really crazy week. I know God carried me all the way through and now I ask you to pray that He'll carry us through our time in Guatemala. To update you, I started my other part time job (at a call center), will explain more later when I'm not leaving for Guatemala in a few hours. As we go to Guatemala, I want to mention these few requests here that you can lift up for us during our trip...
1. Pray that God will use this trip to change the way that we will see the world. Pray this especially for the guys who are going on a mission trip for the first time.
2. Pray for protection and safety throughout the trip.
3. Pray for the people that we will come into contact with- for believers that we'll be able to encourage and strengthen. Also pray for non-believers that we'll come into contact with. Ask that the Lord will open hearts to receive his message and pray that the Lord will show us what to say.
4. Pray for team unity and flexibility.
5. Pray for Christine and Evan as they stay here. Also continue to pray for the Hispanic ministry here as well. There are some exciting things happening, the main one being that we are planning our first baptism for July 19. Will have to fill you all in on the details later on.
I don't have too much else to say. I hope you have enjoyed these pictures and I hope you will be praying for us as well. Take care and God bless.

Happy Father's Day!

The following videos are from the last couple of weeks. I'm sorry I haven't put much on here recently. My camera is having problems and it seems that it doesn't work when there is too much light. The first video is of Evan eating in his high chair, mostly banging his spoon. The 2nd video was taken last week during our camping trip, which was Evan's first camping trip.

Now, I just want to wish a happy Father's Day to all the dads, especially to mine. I was able to get a few videos this morning and will try to put those on later on. I was able to get those videos in low light and it seemed to work. I may also have some pics from my cell phone to put on as well. I won't put any prayer requests on now but I hope to have a prayer newsletter put out this week. I do have a answer to one prayer request about finding a 2nd part time job. I found that and will be starting that tomorrow. Guess this is all for now. Take care, God bless and Happy Father's Day!
