It has been a blessing to be able to continue to work with our past projects along with new ones that God has gotten us involved with here on Okinawa. As we get ready to celebrate the resurrection of Christ tomorrow, I have been reflecting on the heart of service and where and what God has in mind for me next year. It is indeed a time of renewal, rebirth, and get beginnings as we head out again for new adventures.

Steve will be working a new job in the states, but we will continue to develop and press forth on the projects we currently have in South America. We plan a mission trip in July or December, depending on timing because of our move, to complete the second floor of the church in Guayllabamba. Our home church of CMC has been faithful in providing us the money necessary for construction costs and we will use local church labor and any volunteers ready for the challenge.

We also plan to support El Batan with back to school supplies for the street children in September, a small sound system for our partner in Peru to use for street evangelism, and VBS materials for Guayllabamba for the fall.

The opportunities to reach out to co-workers and the military community here have been fruitful and pray that we will continue to see fruit as people experience and realize the power of God working in their lives. If nothing else, traveling the world makes you all the more aware that there are people everywhere of every race and in every community that are right next door that are missing out on the awesome and amazing power of God in their lives.

God is great and worthy of our praise!

This is out our balcony window as God spent time sharing a glimpse of heaven with me. There is nothing that can compare to feeling the presence of God surrounding you and His love overflowing into your heart.
