I just got a message from a friend from college, Jeff Armstrong, who is with Baptist Life Association. He said they are willing to do a matching gift for whatever need Destino del Reino may have. He also said that he has a friend who is willing to do a matching gift to match his gift so we have the offer of a double-matching gift up to $4,000. Although we have so many needs for daily expenses — food, salaries, etc., the project I selected to apply for this matching gift is to purchase another used vehicle. Pastor Pablo has been using an old Toyota pick-up for visiting our school families in the villages each day and that pick-up is completely worn out and pretty much unfixable. We also have… Continue reading
Hey Precious Prayer Partners,
I want to thank you, as always, for your faithfulness in prayer for us at Destino del Reino. God is always working here and I am so blessed to be right here in the middle of it to experience all of His wonders!!
I just got back from a week’s vacation. It is the first time I can remember ever going somewhere to just rest and have some good quality time with the Lord and do NOTHING if I wanted.

Her daddy had died a few years back but her… Continue reading

We have some sponsorships for the students but always lack about 30 and, even if we did have full sponsorships for all the students, we would fall short by about $35,000 to cover all expenses and YET, God provides for us and we keep going and each week we check the bank account and there is just enough to feed all 300 and keep them in materials and pay… Continue reading
Dear Faithful Praying Friends,
I am so grateful for all you have done for me in praying for my family and me during the past few months. As most of you know, my mama went home to Jesus on Mothers’ Day and Daddy went home about a month later. It has been harder than I would have thought since we had been anticipating this and they were so weak and ready to go. I guess maybe it is the finality of knowing I will never hear their voice or hug them again on this earth that is so hard for me — but day to day, God is faithful and He reminds us many times in his Word not to look to tomorrow. He gives grace for the day that… Continue reading
