We said good bye. Bob and Betty Whatley will be retiring from missions in Peru. They have served here for 50 years! May we be so faithful. When Bob read their annual report he cried, we cried with him. It is hard for them to leave the field with so much yet to be done. Betty's health isn't the greatest and it is time to take her home to the USA. They will be missed.
We worshipped. Maynard Belt and his wife Ann were our speakers. Pastor Maynard refreshed our souls and was a great encouragement to us. He has written a lot of poems on different passages of scriptures, fantastic work. He challenged us from the book of Philemon.
BMM Peru 2008. Three families are missing, 2 on furlough and one was sick. This pic includes the ARRIBA students and Fetzer teachers.
We took family pictures. Here is the link to our picassa web site http://picasaweb.google.com/perumom/BMMPeruMissionaries
We had VBS, well actually the missionary kids did. The theme was Rescue Zone. They had a great time. The children have VBS while their parents are in the business sessions. Where would you rather be? :)
