What a joyous month we have had on the property, seeing the wall come to near completion and beginning to plan for the upcoming multiuso project. The boys group has continued to meet and thrive in their Friday night study with Cristian through “The Purpose Driven Life”.
A few of the girls have enjoyed the start up of volleyball again twice a month and are eager to start the study of John in January. We will also be launching our English classes once again. Jordanna and the children have safely arrived in the States to celebrate Thanksgiving and Nana’s 75th birthday. They will be sharing about recent developments in the ministry with a few churches while also trying to rest and enjoy the festive season. They will be traveling back to join Pepper in Costa Rica December 19th to enjoy Christmas together as a family. Pepper has a mission team arriving at the end of November to work in the parcelas area, where many of our students are from. Please pray for their work to be impactful and in line with God’s will. We are especially thankful this season for Chuck and Jennine Miller, who will be traveling with this particular team and kindly donated all of the needed English books and discipleship materials for the girls to use in January. It’s amazing to see such great support from so many, very committed folks. This work is truly a team effort!
This month’s newsletter is brief but we do want to share our most recent video update that showcases the property and future developments. We continue to stand in awe of all that the Lord is doing despite Jordanna’s slow healing from long mono. Please continue to pray for her energy levels to be restored. The children are doing well in their school and Spanish fluency. We have several friends visiting and teams scheduled for early spring. We covet your prayers as they plan to make an impact on our family, ministry and community.
