10 Years in Bolivia!

 Can you believe it?  This month we are celebrating 10 years since we moved to Bolivia as a family.  If you look back at our blog, woefully neglected of late, you'll see that it has been a decade of unexpected changes and LOTS of blessings.  We are thankful for all of you that have accompanied us on our journey of faith and ministry, through prayer, encouraging words, and finances.

As we look back over the years, I think the changes in our family are what make the passage of time most noticeable, so here are some of our favorite family photos along the way.
