The First Part of 2012

The last few months have been so busy, I haven't been able to keep up with my trip and project updates.

Gracie's Mission Journey 
We sent our daughter, Gracie, off to the University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii.  It's a Youth With a Mission (YWAM) training school. Gracie went with me to Malawi, Africa when she was 17, and has been wanting to doing medical mission's work ever since. This Discipleship Training School (DTS) was a special medical DTS for medical personnel.  After 3-months of training her class of 40 divided into several teams to be sent to various parts of the world.  Gracie's team went to the Philippines to serve for two months. Her team returns to the United States on May 28th. Please pray for the team's health, energy and effectiveness medically and spiritually.  You can read more about her adventure in the previous blog entries below or on her blog.     

Los Coco, Nicaragua Trip Update

Carlos lead a small team to a sleepy village just south of Leon called Los Cocos to help Pastor Michael Gaude with a church plant. Thanks to our generous supporters, RtH blessed  the church with a water well.  The well was drilled to 200 feet, a 30 foot tower was constructed, and a 5,000 liter water storage tank was placed on top. In early July, Andy Vano will head down to install the water pump and solar panels (to power the pump), and to connect the whole water system together.

We spent a few days connecting with new ministry partners in Nicaragua and encouraging a missionary couple from Korea.  Pastor and Mrs. Kim have been there for 6-years and provide Bible training and a retreat place for pastors.  Mrs. Kim has found favor with the local public schools where she teaches a Bible study for over 30 teachers and also has been allowed to teach the students Bible stories. 

Rosarito, Mexico Trip Update
We took a team of 30 people from the United States to partner with Case de mi Padre.  We put on an Easter Celebration for some children in Rosarito.

April & May
Porvenir, Mexico Trip Update
Carlos is leading a team of about 100 people from 25 churches down to Mexico May 26-27 on a mini-mission's trip.  We're planning a huge outreach to share God's love and His Word.  We have great plans... soccer camp, clowns, children's activities, family pictures, clothing distribution, haircuts, medical care, acupuncturist, nutritionist, prayer, lunch and it's all free! Plus, we will have the Dunamis Team and the awesome Band Two Or More. We'll wrap up the day with some great testimonies, and the Gospel message along with an alter call.  We have local church partners ready to receive new members and follow up! Please pray for this outreach, thank you!
