2nd Women's Bible Study

We had such a wonderful time at our 2nd Women's Bible Study in the INVU barrio. Because of Easter, we used the Resurrection Easter Eggs to tell the Easter Story to the women and and we had the women who were able to read participate by reading different scriptures fromeach egg. We gave a invitation for the women to receive Jesus and to write down prayer requests so we could be praying for them. It was a sweet time with the women and a few of them actuallyspoke up and participated while I taught. Daniel carved crosses out of wood and the women decorated them to hang on the wall in their homes as a reminder of Jesus's love for them. They absolutely loved this craft and had so much fun using their creativity. It was such a blessed time once again and I just give all the glory to God who is truly leadingevery step of the way with this precious time with these women! Thanks for all your prayers!!!

A visit from Uma and Anne

My Mom and my sister, Anne, came to visit us for a few days this week during my Mom's spring break. We had so much fun with them and we celebrated Thomas's 6th birthday while they were here. One of the highlights of their visit was the canopy zipline tour and Thomas was able to go this time. He LOVED it!! We were so blessed by the time we spent with them and it was lots of fun showing them Jaco and what the Lord is doing here. Here are a few pictures...

School and tennis fun

Here are a few pictures of the kids from today. We have had an incredibly busy week and today was no exception. Thomas's school held a fundraiser to raise money for the kindergarten program so we moms donated food and someone donated a few bounce houses for the kids to enjoy. The boys had a great time! Then we were off to tennis lessons for Thomas and he is doing so well in tennis! Here are a few action shots of him including a picture of him with his coach, Matias, from Argentina.
