Last Post

I know this is very slow in coming! I really meant to finish off this blog on our last night in Cubulco. We had a busy day packing and I finally had all the tired, super excited kids tucked in bed, when the power went out! Sadly it never came on before we left the next morning. We flew home the next day and ever since then I have been meaning to post...but time keeps slipping away from me!
It was very strange to pull up this blog again. In many ways the past year seems like a blur and we have slipped back into life here. Wilf is busy working with the migrant workers, something he has done every summer for the past six years. Some of the kids have grown up a bit, but most faces look wonderfully the same. We are happy to be home again, but we thank the Lord so much for the opportunity we had to live in Cubulco. The Lord was, and continues to be very good!
Wilf has been in contact with some of the church members in Cubulco recently and they are pressing on. There is a possibility they may get a pastor in a couple of months. We pray that the Lord will provide for them.
We are thankful for the way the Lord continues to provide for us. We were able to rent this beautiful home from my aunt and uncle for the coming year. Wilf will continue working with the migrant workers-not only Mexicans, but more and more Guatemalans as well. One farm in the area employs 100 Guatemalans on two year contracts!
Thanks for joining us on our Guatemalan journey! We are so thankful for those who remembered our family in prayer. Our journey continues and we ask you to continue to pray for us! Last night we had a great service with about 60 men attending (and a few women!). The plan is to continue the work throughout the coming year-something new for the people here and for us! Please pray for strength and wisdom and the Lord's blessing on this great opportunity.
May the Lord bless you as you serve Him!

"Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless before the presence of His
glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
Jude 25
