Just a little nut!

They say that every Oak Tree is "just a little nut that held its ground". Well, I don't know about that but you can sure see how my son has grown. This is us by a massive Oak tree in a park near our house in Barrie. Psalm 1 says that the blessed man "shall be like a tree planted..." That makes us think of permanence, stability and growth. That's my prayer; that as God has planted us here in Barrie, He would help us grow and bear fruit for Him. Tonight we will begin helping with AWANA, introducing boys and girls to the Savior through a Scripture memorization program.

Yours by God's grace,

Beyond Repair

I don't know what kind of a building it was in the background but it seems to be beyond repair. I hope we can mobilize teams to Guatemala sometime in the future. In the meantime hurricane "Wilma" gains strength at sea.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Another photo captures the look on poeple's faces as they recieve aid. Have we thanked God today for health and strength and daily food?

Bridge over troubled waters

Since our last post my friend in Guatemala sent some more photos. Our details of the Belize project will wait while we post a few of these astounding pictures of people strugling to survive the aftermath of Stan. The people pictured here are cut off from the rest of the country and the remains of this railway bridge is their only option.

Belize report at Grace Bible Chapel in Timmins

Thanks Horacio for those amazing photos of hurricane Stan's damage in Guatemala! Know that our prayers are with you. We will try and pass along any more info on developments there. In the meantime we want to update our visitors of plans for thier neighbour, Belize. This past weekend Jeremy and I made a trip home to Northern Ontario. J visited his friends in Matheson and I was with the saints at Grace Bible Chapel in Timmins. The Christians at Grace have been a great encouragement for missions. Many have gone on short-term teams, including our trip to Bolivia. This time several expressed a desire to join our mission to Belize. As I write the team is almost full. Navigate back soon to see details of the project.

May the Lord richly bless you today!

Sean & family

Scramble for aid...

Here is another shot sent by Horacio Martinez from Guatemala City. Horacio is a brother in the Lord and a great photographer. In this shot he captures the panic as people scramble to get their hands on aid. He tells of much damage to communities, including places we used to visit regularily to minister. At the time of this report some Christians were still missing relatives. Please remember Guatemala in your prayers, especially the Lord's people serving there.

Devastating Mudslides

Hurricane Stan in Guatemala

These are some pictures sent by a friend of ours in Guatemala. He says there are countless communities totally cut off from the rest of the country. We believe this shot is of the Pan American highway near Camp Caleb.

Vera and me at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, one of the areas hit hardest by hurricane Stan. We are getting some pictures in from friends in Guatemala which we will try and post.

God bless,
