The other day I heard a pastor speaking and he was using this analogy about jig saw puzzles. It really made sense to me. At this point in our lives that is where we are at. When I do a jig saw puzzle I start with all the straight lines, the outside border and then work my way to the middle. Fitting all the pieces together. Right now we got the four corners out and are getting all the flat edge pieces out to start the border. As we put the pieces together we will see the picture more clearly.
As we get more of the pieces plugged in, we will see what the Lord has in store for us, but we are just one piece at a time.

We are back from our short trip to Peru. It was such a blessed time. The staff and the students were very welcoming. The Lord is definitely continuing to guide us in that direction. We foresee one of the struggles we will encounter, which is family time. I will be very busy with school and practical ministry that we really won't have a great amount of just family time. Please pray that we can set a schedule so that we have some quality time. On the positive side the Peruvian culture is so warm and they love kids. Also the school seems very kids friendly. At this point we are starting to get everything in order so we can leave in late July or early August.

We are heading down to Peru today to get a feel for the area. We will be down there for about a week checking out the school and all the ministry opportunities. Very excited to see all that the Lord is doing in Peru. Please pray that the Lord will gives us direction on our housing situation.
