    Tredessa and I are both sitting here working on our laptops and and as I began looking at your pictures, she says very loudly, “Oh, Latin kids are just so beautiful!” I thought she was looking at them, but was actually preparing a Confluence newsletter and sorting through photos from a recent missions trip.

    But it is in the air: you are with the beautiful people. Your photos are capturing something of their hearts.

    My dear friend… I thank the Lord every day for your partnership in this ministry! As I think about how this came about and the impact you are having there, I praise the Lord for the way he has created such a diverse “body” of co-laborers to advance His kingdom. I will continue to pray for you and the entire team and can’t wait for the official face-to-face, every little detail update!
