Thanks so much for your prayers for us this past month as we traveled back here to Paraguay and have gotten settled back into our various ministry responsibilities. We were warmly welcomed by our co-workers and neighbors as well as by a variety of creepy creatures who set up house while we were gone. We had birds, scorpions, centipedes, frogs, and hundreds of spiders taking up residence not to mention the snake that came up the shower drain. If you hear an ear-piercing scream, it is probably just Janet finding another welcoming creature.
Shortly after getting back, we were able to attend a workshop called Strengthening Your Interpersonal Skills. It was a great week of learning and growing in the areas of listening, problem solving, confronting, encouraging, dealing with conflicts, managing stress, and dealing with loss among a host of other concepts. We want to be effective tools in God’s hands for impacting others for all of eternity, and we are very thankful for this week of personal learning and growing.
Pray for our family as we balance a variety of ministry responsibilities. One couple recently needed to leave for a six month home assignment, so we are endeavoring to cover their responsibilities while they are gone. Pray for Josh as he finishes up his 9th grade schoolwork. He is enjoying being back home here in Paraguay. Pray for Ben as he finished his first year of college and has a variety of different activities and work planned for the summer.
Thanks for your prayers!
