Thank you for praying for Luke and Lindsey to adjust to their new school situations. They are both doing very well. Luke loves John Brown and has decided to major in Outdoor Leadership. He found a small church in a small town about 40 minutes from school with many immigrants. He and a group of friends are hoping to start a youth outreach especially targeted at the immigrant population. Lindsey has also made friends and is enjoying volleyball.


Kristi saw a doctor last week about her shoulder. We weren't very surprised to hear him suggest surgery. On Tuesday she will have a full left shoulder replacement. She will be in a sling and unable to use her arm for 6 weeks followed by physical therapy. Please pray that all goes well and for healing.

Because of Kristi's surgery our travels to visit supporters will be delayed until after the holidays.


One of the highlights of September was spending a week in Kansas City at Avant Ministries' headquarters for our Homecoming Conference. It is especially aimed for retired Avant missionaries as well as current missionaries who are in the States. We were able to reconnect with missionaries we have worked with in the past. We had a wonderful speaker who challenged us, and we received updates from around the world in all of the various fields Avant works in. We were encouraged to see that Avant continues taking the Gospel into unreached countries. We came away feeling encouraged and well cared for by our mission leaders.


Lindsey has been on the lookout for any leaves changing color and has found the first ones. The cooler fall temperatures remind us of "home" in Quito. We miss our home there, but are deeply enjoying being home here as well!
