Summer 2008 Update

Wow! God’s blessings never cease to amaze us. At Twin Lakes Summer Camp 1,857 children heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and had an incredible time as they played, spent time with staff and followed the story of Joseph who taught them that “…God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20b

The biggest blessing of our summer came in the form of a new daughter! God has led us to adopt Karina. She is 13 years old and lives in an orphanage in Odessa, Ukraine where she has been since the age of six.
We are in the middle of our paperwork and we are asking everyone to please join us in prayer for Karina.

Our prayer requests are that:
1. The remainder of the adoption process will go through smoothly and be finalized.
2. God will provide all the needed funds to pay for the adoption.
3. That Karina will be home by Thanksgiving.

Karina was able to spend part of the summer with us but is now back in her orphanage until the adoption is finalized. You can follow the adoption story as well as other updates on our blog at

Ministry Report
Thank you for your investment in this work in Peru. Currently we have 25% of what we must raise for the first year of ministry. We are thankful for the way God has provided and are thankful that you have joined us. God’s hand is at work in amazing ways in Peru (and all around the world). Over the past few months a new church plant formed as a result of a short term team doing medical work in a poor area outside of Trujillo, the English language institute has grown tremendously—to record levels, many short term teams have come through doing wonderful work and the current missionaries continue to labor intensely to bring the renewing gospel of Jesus Christ to the area through discipleship, pastor training, university ministry, medical missions and more!

As our family continues to raise financial and prayer support, the remainder of 2008 and part of 2009 will be spent at Twin Lakes with some short term work in Peru and Ukraine, studying Spanish and visiting churches that may partner with us. We appreciate your prayers as we learn the Spanish language and as we raise the remaining 75% or our support.
