Red Alert!

Kent has his Driver's License! :-) Since Steve has our camera, I had to scan in the license. Just double click on it to see it better.

A Salute to Moms

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there. We have one of the most important jobs in the world - let's do our best to raise quality kids.

To my Mom - I love you and miss you. Thanks for all you did to make our home a haven for us. You're the best! Thank you for preparing me for the real world and instilling in me a love for God, family and missions.

This picture is in the hospital where Vonnie and I were born in Jutiapa, Guatemala.

To Steve's Mom - Thank you for raising such a wonderful family, and specifically for your investment in Steve. We love you and miss you.

This picture is from Maria's high school graduation, one year ago.

Faculty members pray with Language School graduates as they prepare to go to their respective mission fields: Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Spain and US Hispanic Ministries.

This morning Steve and Marc left on a 10-day tour of our churches in Central and Southern Mexico. This trip will cover several thousand miles of rough roads, so we would appreciate your prayers for them. For more pictures and information visit Melodie's blog at

Steve Finished Language School

Steve took his last final exam of Spanish Language School this morning. He was chosen to read scripture during tomorrow night's graduation ceremony. He has done great learning Spanish and we are all so proud of him! He's just glad it's over. :-)

More from Mexico

This picture was taken at the border. The military presence is a little unnerving, but we are getting used to it.

The pastor's wife and mother, join Beth and Kent after church in La Florida. They are doing some remodeling at the church. They built new benches and put up different curtains. They also knocked over the outhouse ... I miss it! :-)

Church ladies pray at the altar, Melodie at right, Marc standing.
