2 Corinthians 4:4
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not.
We do see the ministry that God has called us to. That ministry is not waiting for us in Costa Rica but is where we are. Serve others wherever you are. There are no shortages of service opportunities in these times. Believers everywhere are being discouraged, distracted, and in many cases walking away from their church and their God. They need to be encouraged and given even just a little wind in their sail to keep on. The lost multitudes without Christ first of all need to hear the gospel out of our mouths and see us living out genuine faith in shoe leather. Ministry is all these and zip code is not important.
Life for us is not what we had hoped for. We are still in Pensacola, FL as of this writing. Our new target date was August 18th and we had begun to prepare again. Costa Rica did open to several countries but the United States is not allowed in yet. So for now we continue to serve where we are. A message from Sonya:For the kids and I not much is “normal”. We have just the basics of everything for the house and each of us, 2 suit cases each. We are unable to finish last school year or start next year as our school books are in Costa Rica. We have been able to spend some extra time with dear friends and some family. God continues to meet all our needs, He has provided temporary housing from a wonderful Christian family, and a car to drive. We are looking forward to being able to settle in our home in Costa Rica and start His ministry for us there.
We were able to help out with VBS at Grace Baptist Church in Pace, FL. Several young people trusted Christ as Savior. Kevin preached the morning service and gave an update August 2nd at Gulf Coast Baptist Church in Cantonment, FL, our home/sending church. We’ve helped a couple of churches with handyman type odd jobs and a couple of church members with construction “drama” as well. God can use us as He sees fit if we stay humble and make ourselves available. Our church in Costa Rica had its first meeting in 5 months. Our house, our belongings, and car in Costa Rica are all safe and still there waiting for us. Please pray we get there soon!
Thank you each and every one for your prayers, financial support, cards, letters, and emails. To hear from you really means a lot to us and would love to hear from more of you.
