Update from Colorado

Update from Colorado

We have been in Denver and Trinidad in the last two weeks since leaving Costa Rica.  Our time in Denver was fruitful and refreshing.  The Lord miraculously provided all that we needed to attend the conference and counseling sessions, thanks to the generosity of Exchanged Life Ministries.  First Christian Church sent someone to pick us up from Denver to Trinidad last Friday.  They are going to loan us the church van for the next 2 weeks for our travels to Amarillo, Texas and Woodward, Oklahoma.  This past week we have spent visiting with our daughter’s family in Trinidad and other friends in the area.  This Thursday we will be having a potluck at the home of Bill & Kristin Thurston where we will be sharing about our work with some of our YWAM family who are still living in the area. 

Tomorrow we will be heading to Amarillo where we hope to meet with some of our friends and supporters from that area.  We are still looking for a truck and a 4-horse trailer, so if you know anyone who might have one and could possibly donate this for a tax-deduction, let us know.

Monday we will be driving to Oklahoma where our son’s family lives and to visit our newest grandson.  We will be there until Thursday when we head back to Trinidad to drop off the church van.  At this point we need to get another vehicle to continue our trip to Wyoming, Montana and Alberta Canada.  We did find a 1998 Dodge 15-passenger van at a dealer in Trinidad.  They are asking  $4900 for it, but we have asked them to consider donating it for a tax-deduction.  We haven’t heard from them yet, so please pray with us about this possibility.  It would fit our needs for transportation while we are here and would be great asset for the YWAM base since our old van is on it’s last leg.  We have included a picture of it here for you to see.


Our plans to go to Kona, Hawaii for the sustainable agriculture seminar have been postponed until August, so we have to make some adjustments in our plans for July.  At this point we are planning to leave for Wyoming on June 30th and then work our way north to Alberta.  All of this of course is contingent on having a vehicle to do this with, so that is our main concern right now.

We appreciate all the prayers, support, hospitality and great food that we have been getting over the past two weeks.  It has really made us feel cared for and loved and we pray that God will bless you all for it.

Stay tuned for next update!

We are in the United States right now, presently in Denver Colorado.  We left Costa Rica on the 7th, had our flight cancelled in Houston where we spent a relaxed night at the airlines expense in the Hyatt.  We needed that rest!!  We finally arrived in Denver on the 8th and just in time for a conference with Exchanged Life & Grace Ministries.  Since then we have been in some counseling sessions to help us with some “burn-out” symptoms from the stresses we’ve been under for several years.  This has been very timely, encouraging and refreshing for us!

Besides our need to find some rest & encouragement, our goal is to raise our support, as this has been a huge stress factor for us to live with a fraction of what we need.  We can’t continue to operate with our present income, since we can’t even meet our basic living expenses.  In order to travel and visit churches and supporters we will need reliable transportation for the next two months, along with donations for our daily expenses.  If you or anyone you know has a car they can loan us that would be a real answer to prayer, along with any financial gifts.

On another note we have been asked to come to Kona Hawaii to help staff the school of Sustainable agriculture for the first two weeks of July.  They will cover our food and housing but we have to come up with our airfare.  We have close friends and one of my cousins living in Kona so it would be a great chance to see them.  If you would like to help us with this trip please let us know as soon as possible since we only have about two weeks before we would have to leave.  We need appox $1500 for the trip, which would cover airfare for both of us.

After our trip to Kona we will be travelling north to Wyoming to visit the new director of CWAM and to visit one of our supporting churches in Meeteetse.  Then we will head to Montana and on to Alberta to visit  freinds and one of the churches that has supported us and the base for many years.  All in all it is a lot of traveling but we are looking forward to seeing many of you.  If you want to contact us while we are in the US our new phone number is 806-349-3288.  Please give us a call, we would love to talk to you.  We covet your prayers during our travels and time in the U.S.

Blessings to all,

May – News

On May 13th we drove to Nicaragua for our Regional Conference in our Heredia base van.  Thirteen of our leaders from Panama and Costa Rica rode with us for the hot 11 hour trip.  Two hours of that time was spent in the chaotic atmosphere of a Central American border crossing with other travelers, vendors, beggars and plenty of people willing to help you, (for a few bucks of course).

The first 3 days of the conference were for the leaders of the different base locations to get together for fellowship, training and encouragement.  About mid week, the staff and students arrived until we had about 250 people there.  It was great to reconnect, worship and pray together.  Several international leaders also came to share with us some challenging messages.  It was a long week but we came home encouraged and inspired with new vision for the future.  One of the highlights for us was to do some Bible distribution on some of the streets of Diriamba, Nicaragua, where many people were touched by the Lord, prayed with and came to know Jesus personally, as they accepted God’s Word into their homes.


Most of you remember our sharing that our personal vehicle was stolen 3 years ago but within a week the police had found it completely stripped to just a shell.  Well, in the past three years since that, through the help of many friends – – we have slowly been rebuilding it – – replacing all the engine and transmission parts, tires, doors, hood, seats, etc.  We still lack the fenders, fog lights, hitch, and luggage rack, but even without those things, we are happy to report that two weeks ago the vehicle finally passed inspection and is legal to drive again.  At least we are able to use it and get around more.  We want to thank all of you who helped to make this happen!  Thank you for your generous gifts toward this need!

About two weeks ago our first summer team arrived from South Dakota, so we were busy every day with them.  They worked in a local church and some public schools where they did drama, puppets and clowns.  In their spare time they were helping us with some building and maintenance at the base.  We were especially thankful for all the help they gave towards building our new greenhouse.   We have teams coming through June until mid July, so it will be a busy time.  If your church would be interested in coming down to join us for a summer outreach, we still have room from mid July to mid August.  All the information and a team application is available on our website.  ywamheredia.com
