Last week we were super blessed to have Bill & Tracey Wertz come to visit us. Bill is a pastor at our church back home, I worked with him for 7 years and we were in a small group with Bill & Tracey even before we were married. Bill married us, dedicated Kai and we have spent birthdays and holidays with them. Really, they are like family to us. You can imagine how excited we were when they told us they were coming up to Iquitos to see us after they served with a short term project in Arequipa. They were only here for a short time but we treasured each moment with them. I can't explain how wonderful it was to have our pastors and friends here to encourage us in our ministry, marriage and parenting. They were able to meet our team, visit our home, see our church, get to know our city a little, experience an Amazon thunderstorm downpour, and spend some time on the river. It was truly a refreshing time for us. Thank you Bill & Tracey for making the trip up...we love you guys!
