Signing off from the U.S.A.

This will be the last time I write from the U.S.  We are in the process of packing and moving out of the mission house we have called home for the last 6 months.  What a blessing it has been to stay in the Oasis House of Eagles' Landing First Baptist Church.  We feel refreshed and ready to start the new ministry that God has ahead for us in Bogotá, Colombia.  We will be flying out of Atlanta early Monday morning.  We have a short layover in Miami and will arrive in Bogotá around 4:30 Monday afternoon.

We don't know how God will work in this new phase of ministry, but are trusting Him to guide us and show us how he wants to use us in this mega-city.  He is already connecting us with Colombians both here and in Bogotá that want to be a part of our work.

Please keep us in your prayers.  Pray that we will be bold in witnessing and sharing the good news of Jesus!  Pray also for the adjustments we will be making such as finding an apartment, making it feel like home,  making friends with new people, the kids adjusting to (yet another) new school, leaving John Robert here in college....  and things we haven't even thought of.   Most of all, pray that we will be faithful in following the Lord's guidance each day to do and be what He wants.

As we return to the field, I will be more diligent in writing weekly to let everyone know how to pray and also to share how we see God working.
