Sad Goodbyes

We are sad to announce the departure of several of our long-term staff members. It is always hard to see people go but especially when they have been a part of our family for so long! We are so grateful to each one of them for the years they invested in this ministry, for their friendship and hard work!! We trust and pray that God will guide each one of them with their new endeavors! We know many of you who come on a regular basis will miss them too!

Conny Flores, from Germany, has been with us for 7 1/2 years. She has served faithfully as our mission nurse and most recently worked with our child sponsorship program. She has left her mark in Bocachica and on Proyecto Libertad and it´s hard to imagine what it will be like without her! Conny is still praying about what her next steps will be.

Samy has been a part of our family for a long time, since he was a kid, but for the last 2 1/2 years he served as a full-time staff member. He has decided to leave our staff and his official last day is Feb. 6th. Samy wants to work and study. We will really miss him but we trust that the Lord will open other doors for him and give him new opportunities. Samy has worked in the areas of construction, maintenance, discipleship and youth work.

Werling completed 4 years on staff in December and in January decided to leave the ministry. He is working now and wants to save up some money to study. He still lives next door so at least we still get to see him. Over his years with us he worked in construction, maintenance, discipleship and most recently bookkeeping.

Robin was on staff with us for almost 4 years. This photo was taken a couple of years ago when he got his high school diploma after going back to night school. Robin left our staff in November of last yer. He got married on January 9 and is now settling into married life. I was hoping to post some wedding photos but I have lost my camera cable so I won´t be able to for now. Sorry, I know lots of folks are eager to see his new bride.
