Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Pray for us! (July Ministry Report)

Please continue to pray for our involvement in what God is doing here in Uruguay!

We rely on your prayers!

Our latest ministry report is posted at: Good News from a Distant Land.
Final exams in FEBU classes ended on Friday, June 24. During their break students either remain in Montevideo or scatter to other places outside the capital. At least two have traveled to Argentina; another will visit Peru to evaluate future ministry opportunities there. Lifting our eyes (sometimes a bit glazed from correcting writing assignments) to remember the places these young men and women will be serving—not only during vacation but also after graduation—reminds us of why we are glad to have a small part in this good work...

We took a break from class mid-semester to celebrate
my birthday with FEBU students.

Highlights during the past quarter included JM’s taking the next course toward completion of the D.Min. program in early June and working at Campamento Emanuel during the winter break in early July.

We celebrated Dad Garwood’s birthday long distance
with the church in Pando.

Upcoming highlights include the FEBU block course during the last full week of July, the beginning of second semester for both the institute and the college in August, JM’s teaching an institute course at Iglesia Bíblica Marantha on the outskirts of Pando, and my participating in teaching the ladies at the camp in Treinta y Tres during spring break in late September.

Thank-you for praying for Uruguay!
