The End of the Beginning – Update from Costa Rica – April 1, 2012

It seems almost unreal to say that my time at language school is fast coming to a close. We have this week off for Semana Santa (Holy Week). Next week, I will not have classes on Wednesday, due to a national holiday. Then, I’m done next Friday, April 13. I fly to Honduras on the 14th and to Dallas on the 18th. I will spend the very short night in Dallas and continue on to San Antonio the next day.

After picking up some groceries, I will head directly to a retreat center in Mountain Home, TX. I will spend Thursday evening through Monday morning there with no schedules and no responsibilities. Three and a half days is not a long time, but I know it will be very beneficial for me.

Apart from six days in North Dakota in May, the rest of my trip will be spent in the San Antonio area. Three wonderful families have graciously opened their homes to me in San Antonio and one in North Dakota. Two families are loaning me a car to use for part of my time in San Antonio. However, I am still in need of a car to use from May 13-28. If you can help with this need, please post a comment here, send me an email, or send me a message on Facebook.

Unless there’s a family emergency, this is my last trip to the U.S. for 2012. I expect my next trip to the U.S. will be during September, 2013, and annually thereafter.

I am very much looking forward to this opportunity to rest and rejuvenate with friends and family. Please pray for safe travels and wonderful times of refreshing with God through His Holy Spirit.Thank you for your continuing prayers since the start of this wonderful journey with God.

May God bless each of you as you strive to do His will! I love you.

I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. -Romans 15:30 (NIV)

Update from Costa Rica – March 6, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, I was informed that my application for missionary service with The Foundation of Saint Peter has been accepted. This is great news. I will still be working with the Iglesia Misionera de Cristo in Tegucigalpa. My association with The Foundation will enable me to receive tax-deductible contributions, by check or online. I will be updating my website and business cards shortly.

Time is so inconsistent. It seems to fly by, but at the same time, it seems to stand still. It’s March already. I have only 38 days left in Costa Rica, and only 20 of those are class days. I learned a lot of Spanish since August, but I know I have much more to learn. I’ve enjoyed my time here, but I am ready to leave.

I am very much looking forward to six weeks in the U.S. and then returning to Tegucigalpa at the end of May to get to work! In the meantime, I have more Spanish to learn, multiple tax returns to prepare, multiple web pages to update, and an apartment to clean and move out of.

I am still in need of a car from May 8-28. If you live in San Antonio and have a car that I can borrow for part or all of that time, please send me an email.

I thank you all for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray for God’s guidance and protection as I prepare for and embark upon the mission to which He has called me.

I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. -Romans 15:30 (NIV)

Website Update – September 3, 2011

I have just updated my “Honduras 2011 Journal” page of the Acts 2:42 Ministries International website. This update covers the period from my arrival in San Jose through this morning, including information about the upcoming publication of one of my devotionals and the beginning of language school.

I realize I should probably change the title or start a separate journal for Costa Rica, but I am in Costa Rica because of my mission in Honduras, so for now, I’ll leave it as is.

To get to the first entry for each month, just click the name of the month at the top of the journal page.

I am very grateful for everyone’s support. May God continue to bless you all as you strive to serve Him!
