November has been a wonderful month, not just because it is the end of our first phase of Deputation. We have been in so many amazing Churches and blessed with so much love and support that we have just been in awe of the Lord and His people. He has really blessed us this month with 6 New Supporting Churches.As many of you know I was able to have the necessary surgery to remove a tumor from my Thyroid. The Lord has been so gracious to us through out this process. He opened a window to have the surgery in time, it wasn’t cancerous, the surgery was a success, and recovery went so quickly. Thankfully I am back to 100% and ready to go with time to spare.
We now are only a few DAYS away from leaving for the field. We are both anxious and excited as we pack all our things away we are leaving behind and say our good byes to our friends and Church Family this Sunday night, December 2nd, at our “Send Off” service. Which will be the start of our Church Missions Conference which will be the first 3 Sundays of December. We are looking forward to upgrading our living space from our van to an 900 sq ft apartment, and expanding our burden for the world as we immerse ourselves in the Costa Rican culture while learning Spanish.
We still need about 17% of our support to start coming in to be at full support, so continue to pray that the Lord will work in hearts to decide to partner with us to reach Argentina for Christ.We cant wait to see how much more God is going to do in Argentina. Thank you all for all your prayers and sacrificial support. We love you all.

Jan.2nd -Start Language School
We currently have $6000 raise for our Language School expenses. This has been enough to register and pay for our 1st Trimester & 1/2 of the 2nd Trimester We still need to raise the remaining $7000 to cover the rest of Language School. Please pray and consider to give to this fund which will save us money by paying up front and will offset our monthly expenses during our time in Language School.
Special News: Moving
Please be praying for our family as we transition to living on the field and begin Language School process. Culture change effects everyone differently but it most definitely effects everyone. We are not asking God to remove all the obstacles that lay ahead but to give us the grace we need to overcome them.
