The Old Ticker

I am wearing a heart monitor right now. The Cardiologist asked me to wear it for 21 days.  He said that my heart is fine and that he has cleared me to go to Costa Rica.  Now the medical review board will have to make the final decision.  I hope we will know something in the next couple of weeks.  
We will still be going before the IMB Trustees on Sept. 9.  PRAY!!!
I have been amazed at the different people that we have met that have worked or are connected with the Mission work in Costa Rica.  Yesterday, my father met some people that are going to work in Costa Rica for a week with the missionaries.  God is really showing Himself in all of the connections that we are making.  
The kids start school next week.  Please be in prayer for them as they get ready. 
Pray for the Church on the Circle this week.  We are going to have many families out because this is the last weekend before school starts.

Cawthons are going Costa Rica

This is the first blog of the Cawthons' journey to Costa Rica.  We are going to be serving the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.  We have gone through Candidate Conference in Richmond Virginia.  We have been asked to continue with the process of becoming Missionaries for the International Mission Board.  Our next major hurdle is September 9 when we  go before the Trustees of the IMB to be approved to go to the appointment service in Houston TX on November 11.
