The mural is done! We painted an apple tree with Mt. Rainier in the background to represent our church in Washington near a Chilean wine palm with the Andes behind. It’s a pretty great representation of the partnership we have had with this wonderful place.

Watch Out Chile; Here I Come!

Mission Trip to Santiago

Hello Friends!

First off, I want to thank you for all of your support in prayers and finances. This trip would not be possible without you.

I can’t believe we’re leaving tomorrow!! We have been preparing for this trip for a year now, so it feels a little like Christmas. I wanted to let you know some specific prayer requests before I go. AND it turns out I will probably have nightly wifi access! So, I will try to post a (very short) daily update on our ministry and any further prayer requests. So be sure to check back!

I’ll tell you: the thing I am most excited for on this trip is the time we will be spending as a team. These kids are very special to me as I have seen many of them grow up over several years. We will get some processing time each night, and I will be praying for wisdom and discernment; for God to speak through me to these youth about this experience. Missions were an integral part of my faith journey, so I hope that this trip produces long-term effects not just for the church in Chile, but also in the hearts of the youth on our team (and us adults, too, of course!).
