We had a great time in North Carolina spending time with family and friends. It was hard to say goodbye. We are back in Florida now trying to get everything packed up and ready to go. We fly back to Honduras Jan 25. We really enjoyed going to all the different churches and seeing old friends and meeting new ones! We have had a great time here in the States but we are excited to get back home and get going with the ministry. There is a team leaving this Sunday-they will be in Tegucigalpa for a week and then another team will be leaving the following Sunday. They will be in Chaloma. Chaloma is where Evis and Norma lived before they came to the Property.
Please be praying for us as we get back in the swing of things. Pray for Elias and Sadie that they will be able to adjust well. Pray for the groups that are coming this year and for International Mission Builders. In all of these and in our lives I pray that God will be most glorified and that His Word will be spread in Honduras.

We have been enjoying our time here in the States, we have been very busy but having a great time. We were in Florida first for a few weeks then we came here to North Carolina. This past weekend we made a quick visit to Virginia to see some of George's family there. We had a great time but it was cut short so that we could make it back to NC before the snow storm came-and boy did it come. It is still snowing as I type! It is beuatiful and we will soon get out and play in it!
Elias and Sadie are still growing fast! Its hard to believe how fast time goes by!
Now continuing with the updates of Honduras:
In July Taryn Stevens joined us on the Property as an intern. We had a great time and learned alot from one another. She first taught English a few times at a school, she helped me around the Property and with Elias, and a few other ministry things. It was a blessing to have her there and to see her heart for missions. Please pray for her as she obeys Gods guidence in her life. A few weeks before we left to come to the States Norma, Taryn and I started a womens Bible Study! The first week we had over 20 women and lots of kids! We had a fun time a it was great to be able to meet some of the women around the Property (some women walk over an hour to be there!) I am looking forward to getting back and fellowshiping with Norma and these women again! Please pray for these meetings as we get to know the women and that we will have sweet fellowship as we study God's Word.
The work-men and Evis are doing alot of projects around the Property. We have seen a few pictures and they look great. We look forward to getting back and checking everything out!
We had a blessed Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Year and are so thankful that we were able to spend those days with family!
