*This website is dedicated to our mission trip to Bolivia.
After serving two+ years with Homes of Love in Cochabamba we have opened up a new chapter in our time here and have begun serving in ministries that are more outreach based to the community. We are partnering with missionaries from BCM-Bolivia, to support them in putting on weekly Children’s Bible Clubs in some of the poorer areas of Cochabamba. We are also volunteering 2 days a week at Bolivian Children’s Mission (one of the 1st orphanages that we volunteered for in 2008 for 6 months), and I host a support group that meets once a week in our home so that other missionary mothers are able to come and receive encouragement, friendship, and prayer to be able to continue dealing with the issues we face here.
We are in the process of adopting 3 children from our orphanage, and for that reason the judge has ordered us to discontinue our work as house parents for the benefit of the children that we are trying to make our own. (To read a more detailed account of all of these changes; please see our June 2010 Newsletter.)
As many of you know we came here to serve for one year, dividing the time into two-six month commitments at two different Christian orphanages, in August of 2007. Then, after seeking the Lord, we felt led to stay here for two more years as house parents to special needs children. Now we will continue our adventure here for a fourth year as missionaries to the community and as adoptive parents.
Please continue to partner with us in prayer and financially as we make these big changes to our ministry this year.

It’s the Father’s Letter of Love to each of us, His children:
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
-James 1:27 NIV
Enjoy and Blessings from God!
