Family Update
Grace (23) is leaving for the Philippines in January for 2 1/2 years.  She'll be serving in a medical clinic as a midwife.  If she hasn't had a chance to tell you about it, it's because she just returned from Nicaragua where the Lord confirmed her call to serve the poor overseas. Read about her call to become a midwife... HERE

Alison (21) just finished finals and returned yesterday from William Jessup University near Sacramento. She is in her last year of her Literature degree with a minor in Bible.  She's planning to pursue further education. 

Olivia (20) enjoyed a semester of Bible school in England and is currently immersed in a full-time ministry internship at our church. In the fall she'll transfer to Life Pacific Bible College to complete her degree in ministry. 

Chase (16) is at Vista High School and loving it. He is also playing in the city basketball league.  He loves sports and art. He has been growing a mustache this year! ;-) 

My Mum, Zina (86) has come to live with us.  She is doing well physically, but has started losing her short term memory.  My father passed away 16-years ago.

Lisa (53) is still tutoring students and keeping our "Reaching the Hungry" books. She's been hiking a lot this year and loves it! She did the Freedom Climb this summer to raise money awareness to combat human trafficking by hiking 7 of the 14-teeners in Colorado in 4-days.

Carlos (54) is still running our 501(c)3 Reaching the Hungry ministry.   He led mission's teams to Nicaragua twice, Malawi twice, India once, and Mexico about 8 times all this year!  Plus, he officiates lots of weddings to help the girls with their college fees.  

We are all looking forward to 2015!
