God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
We count on our God in these difficult and uncertain times. God is not caught off guard and He has not left His throne. He will see us through these times. Stay faithful. We could write a book on the blessings God has poured out on us in these months of waiting. We continue to have housing. We are on our second loaner car. We have learned to make do with what we have- two suitcases each, ha-ha! We have both lost all of our deputation weight and a few inches, so all of our old clothes are fitting again. We are feeling good and have our energy back and even look healthier.
The border in Costa Rica is still closed to non-residents and foreigners. As of August 1st it will begin to open but only to countries that have a handle on the Covid-19. As of this writing the U.S. is not on the list. Hopefully soon we will have a solid date. Our church in Costa Rica has not met since the end of March and no firm date on when church will be allowed. So I guess if we are to be stuck somewhere our hometown is probably the best place. We were able to get a tool room built inside the vocational school building. Our Jeep was finally cleared, registered, and delivered on June 13th and is in our driveway in Costa Rica!
Although stuck in Florida we’ve had a lot of ministry opportunities. We helped at our home church, Gulf Coast Baptist Church, with VBS and were the featured missionaries this year. The next week we helped a sister church with their VBS and we both taught teens all week. Several young people made decisions to trust Christ as Savior, Amen!
We’ve had several meetings, including teaching Sunday school, updating supporting churches and one presentation. We thank God for these opportunities to serve Him and share His ministry and gospel.
Thank you each and every one for your faithful giving, prayers, cards, e-mails and encouragement. We are truly grateful.
