Summer fun & fellowship for our kids 2009

Going back to Costa Rica party with friends!!!
Serena & Eden with best friends in front of the missions house Birmingham, Al.

Serena & Eden had the opportunity to spend a month and a half in the states with the most incredible group of friends I think any kids have ever had. They were gifted with a trip to the beach with the college group at our home church... Shades Mountain Ind. Church in Birmingham Al. They were also taken on the Jr./Sr. High beach retreat with thier youth group. Serena had the opportunity to perform for another local missionary. Eden was able to work at Camp Staright Street with the famous Jawoo!!! as a camp counslor and received her first pay check. They were showered by the love of Christ through their B'ham family. They were also fed spiritually by the ministry of SMIC!!! Thanks to all who made this trip so special.

Women of the Harvest Furlough Retreat 2009

My small group: Women from Africa, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Russia!!
Sweet times of prayer

"That is why the scriptures say, "How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news"

Romans 10:15

Marge had the opportunity to attend the 2009 Women of the Harvest Retreat at Glen Aire in Colorado Springs, Co. this summer. She was one out of 100 missionary women from 42 different countries!!!! The guest speaker was Linda Dillow and she spoke on "Worship" There are Two forms of worship, one where we bend our knees and say Holy, Holy, Holy and the other worship which is bending our wills and living Holy, Holy, Holy. This was an incredible opportunity to share heart to heart intimacy with other missionary women and to be renewed and refreshed for the challanges that arise on a foriegn field of service. Thank you to all who made this trip possible. I am trusting God that there will be eternal fruit. Here are some pictures of the expeierence.
