APRIL ENCUENTRO

Sunday, April 23rd, we had a big church service at our house. 
  The group from San Francisco bused up and several from our town came. 
Lunch preparations.  Derek is on the left.  He is our medical intern for all of April.  Joe, a high school friend of Jeff's,  is in the middle.  On Thursday Jeff drove to Villarrica to pick Joe up.  We was in country on business.  We are thankful he thought of us and extended his trip to include visiting us in the countryside.  


The boys played soccer....they always play soccer

 We had sweet fellowship and terere before the service started


We had worship and four stories were shared.  We shared Lord’s Supper together

 Then we ate lunch together.

BEGINNING of APRIL Happenings

Ryan’s first soccer game!

 Ginny's rabbit, Brindle, had 3 babies.
We have team mates in town!  The Howell's house is finally finished and they are moved in!  We are excited to do ministry and life (game night pictures below) with them.



We have an intern with us this month.  Derek is in his last month of DO school in Texas.  

Derek with his host family 

 Out visiting

April 4, 2017 – team meeting
We have one family living in Jataity with us and two more families within 20 minutes of us. We enjoy meeting together for prayer and fellowship.  However, with four families to coordinate and with as much traveling and ministry we all do, it is next to impossible to get us all together for a team meeting…but look…it actually happened in April!  What sweet, sweet fellowship.

April 5, 2017 – Science Co-op


 April 6, 2017 – Jeff’s 41st birthday
The Floyds,Sarah and Derek joined us for a birthday lunch.  Jeff’s request was his favorite Paraguayan meal – Tallarin.  Ginny made him a chocolate cake. 


April 7, 2017 – Meet Cletus
 A gift from a patient.
 And another gift from a patient.


 Ginny loves her goats – Cuzco and Gypsie.  I love her shirt….Keep calm and love goats!

April 9, 2017 – church
The planned encuentro with Paraguayans was rained out but that didn’t stop us from worshiping together and fellowshiping over lunch.  The Bakers joined us and the Rolones (our newest SIM team mates) were already staying with us. Ryan, Jeff and Derek led us in worship.
