Nine Years in Chile

Nine years ago today, our family arrived in Chile for our first term of missionary service. The picture for this prayer card was taken in Texas just a few months prior, as Pedro completed his year of language training and we prepared to set out on this great adventure!

And what an adventure it has been.

God has taught us so much about Himself and His character in these nine years. We've experienced His loving protection and provision, and have witnessed the transforming power of the Gospel in lives of men, women and children in Chile.

There have been mountaintops and valleys, thrills and heartaches, days of rejoicing and days of pain. Yet He has been faithful through it all. The task at hand is greater than ever before as we continue to follow His leading into new and uncharted areas of ministry. We rest in the truth of this verse that hangs on our kitchen wall: "He who calls you is faithful, and He will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

Thank You, Lord, for privilege of serving you these nine years in Chile.

Thank you for those nine years, Stephanie and Pedro! I would like to start contributing to your support but I do not know how to go about that or how to contact you any other way than this.
