Team Visit - Defuniak Springs...

This week theIDC hosted our first group from First Baptist Church in Defuniak Springs, Florida.  This group touched it all with home building, children's ministry, work in Hermano Pedro.  As always photos will say it all... 

Thank you God for First Baptist of Defuniak Springs.

The Church Growth...

Not long ago,  a couple that have been in the church for the last couple of years and going through a great deal of marital difficulties, came to church and re-committed their marriage before the congregation.  God has been working a miracle in their marriage and they wanted the world to know it.

God is blessing their marriage.  This is their new baby girl - Maria Alejandra Roble - the newest addition to the church.

This is great...

By all marks this newspaper scan may not mean that much to the world outside theIDC.  However to us it represents what has been a 4 year journey.  This document is the final stage of legal standing in Guatemala for the church.  This means we have about 4-6 weeks and theIDC will be a real church.

Yea God!

Bill Tour...

This week we met some new friends with the help of Bill Losasso.  Southport Baptist Church is looking for how they can expand their missions program.  We were able to show them around a bit as well the potential ministry available - the Colonia Infintil Malnutrition Center, San Juan. - Home Construction in Pastores - Bethel Ministries, Wheel Chair Ministry - to name a few.  

New friends, possibilities of expanded ministry - life is good.

This makes me laugh...

Nancy and I are starting to receive some direct mail from a local restaurant.  I guess next time I share our name via the phone I should spell it out.

I never get tired of this.  We continue to be blessed to work with and host Valor and Service breakfasts with the National Police of Guatemala.
