Feliz Navidad (this is the letter and pictures that we sent out this year)

Feliz Navidad Amigos y Familia!  Merry Christmas Friends and Family!                                                       December 2013

That is about all the Spanish we know but do not worry, we plan to know a lot more by this time next year.  For those of you who have not heard, we are dropping everything and moving to Costa Rica in July 2014 to serve as Missionaries.  We are so excited.  We are sad to say goodbye to all our friends and family but feel confirmed that this is what God wants us to do.  Each of the children are excited to do their part in serving God through serving the people and children of Costa Rica.  Please visit our website to find out all the details.  We welcome any questions you may have.

2013 has been full of more of the same.  Rob continues to be employed by The Hartford insurance company and will have to leave that job when we move.  It is our prayer that Rob will be laid off before July so that he won’t have to resign.  Whatever happens, we are trusting God for our financial support while in Costa Rica.  Yvonne continues to be self employed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the near bye town of Granby.  Although business is going well, Yvonne is excited to use her skills in a different way with the children and families of Costa Rica.
