We’re Back!

July 27, 2009

Both the summer and short-term Peru teams arrived back in the US today. The team of Aaron Martin, Stephen Archer, Cara Childers, Chris Traffanstedt, Anna Traffanstedt, Abbey Thomas, Andrew Thomas, Nancy Thomas, Charles Murray (Birchwood Baptist), David Price (The Gathering) and Keith McAfee (The Gathering) arrived back in Chattanooga around 4:00 pm. Colby Wilkins and Nick Thornton landed in Atlanta this morning around 8am. Nick will spend some time at home in Douglasville, GA. Pray that God would provide Nick a job and clear direction about his future. Colby will be in Chattanooga this week, reuniting with his fiance Kat, before returning home to Norman, Oklahoma for 2 weeks to take a class. He will then return to Chattanooga (Covenant College) for his final year of classes. Chris and Ashley Robbins arrived this morning and will return to Chattanooga tomorrow.

This past week in Alis was absolutely incredible! There is so much to tell as I reflect on what God has done this summer. Let me first state that we could not have asked for a more competent, God-centered, and gifted summer team. It was a joy to watch Colby, Nick, Chris, Ashley and Melva (Peruvian missionary) in action this past week. God opened a few significant doors this past week. We can’t wait to tell you about His goodness and grace during our time in Alis. Also, be in prayer for The Gathering and Birchwood Baptist as they consider a strategic partnership with us in Peru.
