After many sad “good-byes” to those we did life with in Honduras with for 8.5 years we packed all we could into 4 checked bags and carry-ons (+1 dog) and we were off to Chile!
We had a little rocky start, but God’s presence was felt every step of the way.
We got plugged into a church (connected with Timothy Keller’s “City to City” movement) that welcomed us and has cared for us far beyond our expectations! Here is a “Day in the Life” video from our pastor. We’ve enjoyed being part of the men’s and women’s Bible studies.
I have spent most of my time continuing to record chapter by chapter through the Bible in Honduran Sign Language (after 3 years made it to 2 Samuel!), writing new curriculum (about John 10:10), translating past curriculums, and focusing on spiritual growth, disciplines and rest. Daniel has started working a couple hours a day with VIPKids teaching English online and helping with the English club here in our city with our church. We are looking forward to getting to train more as well in our respective areas in the coming months.
Chile celebrated its independence day September 18th so that was a great opportunity to experience some of the Chilean traditions and foods. The church had a bbq and games and we went to the fairgrounds the following weekend. Maya was worn out!
Thank you for your continued prayers as we debrief from our time in Honduras, find our ministry and personal rhythms here and hear from God where He is calling us in our next season of ministry!
