talking, that behold, there
appeared a chariot of fire

|CELEBRANDO HOUSE BUILT!
Money was donated towards a house to be built in Rio Bravo, Mexico, raffled off during the
2014 Celebrando Navidad event. The winner and her husband had saved for years to
purchase a small spot, just needed a house. Lo and behold, the Lord picked her as the
Our 'on call' construction team from Alabama and Mississippi had flights bought and were
coming at the beginning of April.... when a huge storm came through our area, flooding
where the house would be built. The night before, Nathan cancelled their trip, not wanting
to waste their energy, looking at the flood waters.
Nathan leaves for Nicaragua May 15 and knew it had to be completed before then. He and 3
folks from the house area (never picked up a hammer before)(and Arturo for 1 1/2 days)
went to work and it's finished! Lots of learning, boo boo's, scrapes and the realization of
being older than he (Nate) thought.... and EXTRA BIG THANK YOU to those that provided this
|SUMMER NICARAGUA TEAMS COMING!
Nathan will be leading a team of Nicaragua pastors for Way of the Cross, the
ministry we began with, 11 years ago!
FBC Purcell, OK is once again going to spend our wedding anniversary (31st)
with us! 18 team members (+ us and translators) will utilize 3 teams daily to
host VBS twice a day (for 6 days) in the area of Jinotega.
As the VBS team flies back, 3 more from their area (+ Nathan, Leo and
Juan/from Donna, TX) will fly in and head to Bluesfield for a mini-mantrip,
The FBC McAlester, OK and Donna, TX teams will be split up this year into an
adult team (15) working in Chinandega with the YOUNG ADULT (10)
(youth/college) working in Chichigalpa (not so far away). This is our first time
for the YA team and they're excited, while I'm already worn out just thinking I'll
be portraying a YA for a whole week! FYI - YA.... your team momma responds
very well to CHOCOLATE and PEEPS!

Snowflake is coming back to teach Tools of Evangelism (lots of ways to share
about Jesus through slight of hand) to a different church each day! Last
year, on the 2nd day, she slipped off the sidewalk (while crossing the street)
and BROKE BOTH WRISTS! It's been a tough year of surgery, rehab and
therapy but she never lets anything stop her! Her lovely assistant Sondra is
unable to come this year - anyone interested in coming to help her out with
the kids (keeping them busy while parents go thru the training)? Nathan will
be there to help out too.
