A Testimony of Service

I have mentioned several times that God has been sending us resources as we have needed them.  Two of those resources have been Dave and Irma Powers.  Dave is a retired Math teacher and Irma is a retired nutritionist. They wanted an adventure and to serve God.

They have blessed Sendero in countless ways.

Read Irma's testimony about her time here.

When we applied to become short term SIM missionaries for El Sendero we had no idea of what God had in store for us here.  What we did know is that we were retired and wanted to serve The Lord in some interesting way.  

One of our prayer requests was that God would knit our hearts together with the local people so that we could actually be of use as many times personality conflicts & interpersonal relationship difficulties can kill the best of intentions.  God has done the knitting in incredible ways.  

The whole team at El Sendero has welcomed us with open arms & hearts.  In addition, the local people have invited us to dinner in their homes, taken us to church, helped us learn the language and even helped with our homework & requested Bible studies.  

 Most of all there is an incredible bond of love and acceptance that only God can give.  

This love makes us want to work harder, encourage each other & share our lives and faith with all who come through the doors.

Would you like to join us on a incredible journey of faith and service?  El Sendero is looking for short and long term missionaries to serve along beside us.  Maybe the person we are looking for is you!!!  Don't know Spanish?  Neither did they!  Don't know the culture?  Neither did they?  Not Spring Chickens anymore?  Neither are they (though I swear I think they might be younger than I am).

If you have an interested bone in your body, please send me a message to let me know.  One tiny interested bone is all that it takes.  I will twist that tiny bone until we see you here!
