As many of you know I have been serving on short term mission trips to Guatemala and Mexico for 5 years. Over those years the call to serve on a longer trip was laid upon my heart. I expressed this call to my wife and she did not feel the call to go; she hadn't experienced her mission trip yet. I continued to learn, grow, and go for short term trips without Kristen by my side. I enrolled in mission courses at CCBC where I learned more about how to serve as a missionary. It was during this time the Lord spoke to my wife and softened her heart for the mission field. Kristen and I had the opportunity to serve together on the mission field in October 2018, to Guatemala. Kristen was all in after that trip and would follow my lead into the mission field. We have planned out our longer term of two years where we will take our 13 year old son with us out on the mission field. That leads us to now. Our vision trip for a longer 2 year term is at the end of this July. We will catch the vision of who we will serve, what our potential role will be, and where we will be living and going to school. On this trip we will be sharing the gospel and Love to the people of Guatemala. We will also be visiting families in need, bringing food and medicines needed for illnesses. We will forsake the American dream and pursuit of happiness; we will sacrifice our comfort for those who might not get the opportunity to hear the gospel. We will work with Manna Worldwide, who saves kids around the world from the grips of poverty by setting up church communities and feeding centers around the world. Your support in prayer and finances is important to us as we take this journey on to the mission field. Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement!
Love and Appreciation,
Peter & Kristen
