While our family is growing bigger, the home front is getting smaller! Bethany & Filipe will soon be moving from the DC area back to Lynchburg, VA, Matthew & Karizma are in San Diego, California, and Gabriel is in West Africa until the end of April!

Dear friends and family It has been a few weeks since I sent out a letter. Two weeks ago we had a week’s holiday then the next week Wendy went up with me.

Releasing the Teachers The churches in the Simbu Province decided to get together to do something they’d never done before. They had a church in one area where the missionaries were absent, and they are sending the Elijah family there for 6 months until their missionary returns. The Thadias family are being sent to aContinue reading February 2020
