Spring in Trujillo

Being south of the equator means that our seasons are just opposite of that of our friends and family in the USA. You are beginning to enjoy fall colors (which we miss terribly), and we are starting to see a bit more sunshine each day. It is still pretty chilly and the majority of the time the sky is overcast. Last week David and Rebekah took a missions trip to the Lima area. They had a very busy week of teaching and evangelism. David spoke many times on the topic of the family. Rebekah had the opportunity to lead 2 ladies meetings while the 4th year (Bible college) gal gave the devotional. At home we are plugging away at school. Ben is adjusting to college and continues to look for either a better paying job or one to supplement his on campus job. We are thankful that his body has adjusted to the food in the USA.

Jacob Turns 13!

Happy birthday, Jacob. You are growing into an awesome young man. People who don't know him think he is so serious. But once you get to know him he is a real character! So much fun and so much busyness wrapped up into one boy! I personally hope he never looses those chubby cheeks! Love kissing them, but he only allows mommy to do that!
Can't wait to check out that new wii game!

USA Trip - The Third Stop

The next stop was Iowa, the last stop. David stayed with his brother Jeff and his family. We are so thankful for the hospitality. They are fun to be with and we love them dearly. This mom is also glad they are close by just in case Ben might need them.

The "elder" Stilwell cousins. Benjamin (18), Hannah (20), and Joshua (19) These 3 love being together.

USA Trip - The Second Stop

Their next stop was Hills Corners Bible Baptist Church. Ben had a desire to stop in there for a servcie and see some friends. The family they stayed with have horses and some shooting for them to do. Nice men activities. Too bad they could only stay the night.

Ben and David in the USA (the first stop)

David took Benjamin to the US to get him settled at Faith Baptist Bible College in Iowa. Their first stop was at my parents' house in Indiana.
My parents took David and Ben to this neat railroad museum/restaurant. It is less than an hour north of Lafayette.
