"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

Hearts for Missions

What and adventure this month has been for our family. We are so thankful for friends and family and the love that has been shown to help encourage and support our family as we approach our departure date.

So thankful for our friends at South River Baptist Church and the Upper Room for encouraging the youth to focus on  CHRIST and missions.  For 24 hours - youth in the area came together at the Upper Room to fellowship with other youth and give up all "technology" for 24 hours. It was amazing to see God at work as Terry and Cherilyn Davis & Andrew and Emily Ponder worked many hours to help host this event. Words cannot express our special this all night "worship" was for our family. Thank you to all youth who participated and for all the individual and corporate donations to help support the ministry in Peru. Thank you also to all the staff at the Upper Room, 3 Days Leave Band, Josh Bunton with special music from a friend with an AMAZING talent on the electric guitar and to Brian Burgess with his incredible bible study. Really appreciate EVERYONE!

Thank you Beulah Baptist and all of the "MANCODE" group for the barbecue fundraiser. You guys mean a lot to our family...words cannot express how much Sean will miss meeting with you guys on Monday nights as strengthen your faith and walk with God with other fellow believers. Thank you to all our church family and so many others in the community who helped support this event and share in this DELICIOUS BARBECUE.

Thank you all to all our supporters  and for the send off commissioning service that our church family had for us. This really meant a lot to our family and please know that you all will be missed. We hope and pray that you will continue pray for all the orphans, adults, and youth in the Cajamarca, Peru area for their hearts to be open to hearing the GOOD NEWS. Pray that our family will be "flexible" and open to where God continues to lead us each and every day.

May God Bless You All!
