Thank you so much for all of your prayers, encouragement, and support! We have made it through our first year in Chile. It has been a year of transitions:
- a new country,
- a new culture,
- a new language – they say it’s Spanish, but even other Latin Americans struggle with the ‘chileno’ that is spoken here,
- new family dynamics – first leaving Joseph in the US while the rest of us moved and then again with Mary Beth moving back to the US for her senior year of high school,
- and new ministry roles – Steve traveling a lot and collaborating with people throughout South America, Amy engaged with Parakaleo in Chile – working with ministry wives to encourage them in their roles, and both of us engaging in the local church and local Christian community.
It has been a lot, and God has proven himself faithful every step of the way!
