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: Exciting Updates!

Thank you for your continued interest in the work in Uruguay. God is answering your prayers:
  • We now have a target departure date: June 11, 2013. (You can read details in our Winter 2013 Ministry Report.)
  • Our current support level is just under 85% – We continue to be encouraged!
  • Plans continue for a start date of March 2014 for FEBU (Facultad de Estudios Biblicos del Uruguay: College of Biblical Studies of Uruguay).
During the past three months we visited churches in SC, NC, IL, and OH.
The TN mountains were especially beautiful with fog and frost!
In family news:
  • JM is finishing another course in the D.Min. program.
  • Elizabeth is on target to finish first grade by the end of this month so she can begin second grade in March and be in sync with the school year in Uruguay.
  • She turned 7 at the end of January, and DJM turned 2 in late October. If anyone knows how to keep them from growing so fast, we would like to hear from you!
We would appreciate your prayers during these next several months:
  • February 13: JM’s public ordination questioning
  • February 24: Our commissioning service, along with friends, the Crockers, who hope to begin gospel work in Mexico City this year
  • March through May: Safety in travel and God’s gracious work in churches we visit here in the US
  • June 11: Travel from Miami to Montevideo, Uruguay!
