A new grandbaby, a trip to the jungle, surgery, and a small anniversary:  that’s what’s new with us.

After multiple miscarriages, our son and daughter-in-law have a baby girl, born in mid-February.  Jody has a “grandma trip” scheduled, we’re savoring the photos, and our hearts are full of joy and gratitude.  Many of you prayed for this baby for months–thank you!  (Contact us if you’d like a photo.)

In late January we flew into the jungle for the dedication of the clean water system in Santa Rosa.  Last September Scott spent five days working on the water tower in this community, and it was wonderful to be part of the celebration.

In December Scott had foot surgery to remove a metal plate and six screws which were used to piece the bone together when he broke it in Costa Rica in 2014.  After eight weeks he is fully recovered and back to unicycling and hiking.

February 15 we celebrated 1-1/2 years in Ecuador.  We’re stil newbies, but our neighbors are starting to talk to us, we are understanding more of the sermon in church, and sometimes we have a clue of what is expected in social situations.  Progress!

Thank you for your encouragement, support, and prayers.  We are very blessed.

Ministry Focus:  Corrientes

Corrientes 3

Corrientes (Spanish for “Currents”) is Reach Beyond’s mentoring program to equip Latin American believers who have the zeal to serve God with their talents, especially in places where the gospel is least known.

Former Corrientes students are serving around the globe as medical missionaries, healthcare and community development workers, teachers and church planters.

Here’s a great video for a glimpse of Latin American missionaries and Corrientes.
