February 2020


I’d like to thank everyone who has listened to me share about my Bolivian ministries over the past several weeks. It’s been a joy to connect and reconnect with so many individuals and home groups and give an update on the last couple of years. I’m grateful for every single individual who has played a role in making my service in Bolivia possible.

I’d also like to thank all of you who were able to make it to my open house and those who made it all possible. It was a special time of sharing, conversing, and of course, eating Bolivian food. Thank you for your support and prayers through the years.

While my time here in the United States has been very special, I am looking forward to returning to my life in Bolivia. I’m most excited to reconnect with the young men I am mentoring, the children of the orphanage Talita Cumi, my friends, and meet new students who will be taking my English courses.

Please pray for safe traveling mercies for me (I return to Bolivia in two weeks), that the Lord would guide my steps as I start up my ministries again, and that the university students and children would grow in their knowledge of Jesus this year.

A number of you expressed interest in donating to me or to the children’s orphanage Talita Cumi. Click on the links below to do that online. All giving is tax deductible. If you are interested in sponsoring a child or purchasing the Talita Cumi children’s book, please reply to this email and I will send you more information. Thank you!
