One Year

On year ago we arrived in Peru. A lot has happened and the time has gone very fast, and also it seems it has gone slow. We have lived in 3 different cities, added 8 members to our family, watched our baby turn 2 and act like it, we have both turned 29, we have learned to speak a new language and live in a new culture. There are also plenty of things I can´t measure, like the love I have felt, the grace I have been given, the faithfulness of our Lord, lives that have been changed. It has been a year I will never forget and will always look back on with joy and thankfulness. But this year has passed and now we look forward to how the Lord will use, mold and guide us through the next one. We don´t know all that is to come, but we can rest in the assurance that he does and he is will be with us and for that I am thankful!

Thank you to all of you who have walked with us this past year. We have so many that are praying for us, who are suppporting us financially so we can be here, who have come and participated in projects and built our home, who are part of our Extreme team supporting us in numerous ways, who have sent us packages or encouraging letters or supplies, who have strengthened us with words of support and encouragement. Thank you, this past year would not have been possible without all of you...and this next year wouldn´t be either. Thank you for being a part of what the Lord is doing here and for the immeasurable love you have given. God Bless you!
