Stepping out in Faith

We thank God for the way He has been burdening Nicaraguan youth to study the Bible and committ themselves to serving Him full time.  Over the past couple of years we've seen 9 youth head off to Argentina to study God's word and prepare themselves for full time service to Him.  They are all currently in Argentina and a few will be returning to Nicaragua next year upon completing their 3 years of study.  Here is a picture of them in Argentina.

Word of Life also has a bible institute in Mexico and there are currently 4 Nicaraguan youth who are ready to leave for Mexico anyday now.  They are just waiting on their visa paperwork.  Once they get news of their visa they will be off on a plane.  It's sad to see them go, but great to know they are being obedient to God's call and are right where He wants them to be.  Here's a picture of the four youth with Guillermo, Mayra, Jader and myself.

Birthday Celebrations!

September 21st Caroline turned 1 year old!!! I can't believe how fast this year went by! We are so thankful to God for the precious gift that she is to us and for the way she brings such joy to our lives. We decided to have two birthday celebrations for Caroline. :) We had one the day of her birthday (Wednesday) with Jader's aunts and cousins and then another the following Friday where we invited the friends who are closest to us.

Here we are celebrating with Jader's family...

Now these are pictures from our celebration with some close friends...
