If you know my father-in-law, then you may have heard these words come out of his mouth at one time or another: “We can do together what we can’t do alone!”

Well, that definitely is true when it comes to what we did as a SK community last week —

Praise the Lord!!

Just last night, Max and I returned from a wonderful, week-long visit to Santiago, Chile, to attend our friends’ wedding (in which we both had the honor of participating – I sang a song and Max officiated in part of the liturgy) as well as had wonderful reunions at two of our FM churches.

Because of your many prayers, clothing donations, and financial gifts, we were able to give away more than 80 Bibles, hand out about 30 blankets, give children’s reading books, and share pants, sweaters, coats, scarves, and gloves with our Chilean friends. They were so thankful (as you can see from the photos in the slideshow below)!

Thank you so much for the incredible outpouring of support for this SK missions opportunity! Friends have continued to give. Once we tabulate all the expenses, we may even be able to send an additional blessing to the work of our churches in Santiago. What a joy it is to work together for His glory!

Ephesians 4:16 (NIV) From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
