“For our citizenship is in heaven,

from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior,  the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:20

Have you ever felt out of place?  It’s not the most comfortable feeling, is it?  During the past months, our family has walked through some of these feelings—having left our home in Nicaragua unexpectedly back in April of 2018, experiencing some difficult changes while here in the states, and now getting ready to return to Nicaragua.  It has certainly been a time where we’ve often questioned, “Where is home?”  In the beginning of this year, as I wrestled with that question, the Lord brought me to the well-known verse above, Philippians 3:20. For what this season of life has been, it has given such a fresh and encouraging perspective.  It’s a reminder that we desperately needed: our permanent “home” is not found in any specific location here on earth, our home is in heaven.  We are pilgrims through life here on earth, but our permanent residency is above, and we EAGERLY anticipate being in our eternal home with our Savior.  As we wait for that day, regardless of where we are living (Nicaragua, California, ect…), we want to faithfully be doing what He has called us to do.

We wanted to take a moment to thank each of you who have prayed with and for us and our family during this season. A lot of change has taken place in these past 10 months.  There have been changes in Nicaragua, changes in our family, and changes in our own hearts.  Some changes have been difficult and others a beautiful blessing.  Through it all, we know God has sustained us, walked with us and shown His faithfulness time and time again.

We will be making our way back to Nicaragua at the end of this month.  Once again, we ask that you join in praying for our family as we return and settle back into life there.  We are looking forward to sharing the love of Christ with those who are hurting and in need. Please pray that we would be attentive to God’s leading and all that He would want to do as we serve Him and these people whom He loves dearly.

By His grace,
