    Hi Bob,
    Wanted you and Louise to know that Mackenzie met Jesus face to face about 11:50 a.m. today (life support disconnected yesterday about 1pm). Details pending, but Wes said probably a Saturday funeral – everything Zeeland way – our church too small to accommodate the expected crowds.
    Hopefully all is well on the Guatemala front. Blessings to you all.

    Hi Bob,
    Did Doug eat all the food yet? I hope he is not starving. Also has anybody drank the well water.
    I’m asking God to give you all strength in the heat and to keep your bodies cool in the heat.

    Oh Bob, I love the picture! 🙂 Bri and I have been sending prayers to the Big Guy for you! Hope everything is going great! Miss you and can’t wait to hear all the stories with the head-shake when you get back! Thanks for being such an outstanding Dad (in-law) and setting a great example of living a life for Jesus! Sending you nothing but the sweetest blessings!

    Love you, Britt

    Hey Bob,

    Are you avoiding the cold and staying warm? Great pictures and looks/sounds like everyone is having a great time. Thanks for your leadership and guiding the kids through this opportunity to serve and grow.

    Hi Bob, I read a neat verse last night.
    Isiah 40:31 Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk an not be faint.
    I hope there is some neat God stuff going on. Pass this on to everybody. Can’t wait to hear all the stories.
    Give HIM all the honor and glory.
    God Bless, Greg

    thanks for all the prayers, we will really need them today and tonight:going to a village that they have never been too before. everyonne is exhausted, we need to rely on the strength of the Lord to push through, please pray for that and that the Holy Spirit would already be where we are going and that things will be what he wants done not us.

    Hi Bob! Sounds like you are having an awesome experience and that God is really working — we may never know the impact your service will have had on the lives of those you are serving and the lives of those who are doing the serving. Is Doug still alive?–we have yet to hear from him and would cherish a note — The Bolthouses haven’t heard either and have threatened not to pick their kids up so you may have a few extra to take care of (ha,ha)
    God bless you all! Lynda

    Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.
    1 Thessalonians 5:11
