We have made it!

Well, after all the waiting and preparing we are finally here in Tomé, Chile! Now that we have been here for a couple of days we cannot even believe that this is reality, we keep telling each other that this place here seems like more of a dream. So much has happened in the two full days that we have been here that it is hard to know where to start.

Yesterday(Thursday the 16th of September) we went and visited a nearby town where people had been displaced, and both of our hearts just really went out to the people because we have slowly been realizing that many people here still have very little after the earthquake and resulting tsunami.

Over the next few days we will be celebrating with the people of Chile as the celebrate their 200th year of independence, we are meeting many people, and all of them are so kind to us. a few things that you can be praying for are.

-Peace to be with the people of this region. Many are fearful that another large earthquake might accompany the one from February.
-For communication between the two of us, and others to continue to go smoothly
-For good rest (the dogs here bark all night long!)
-Much energy! we have a lot of stuff to do

That is all for now! we will have more updates, pictures, and a video coming in the next few days!

  1. Yeah! So glad and grateful that you are there and that God is already showing you that He has been preparing this place and time for you as His provisions are laid out for you in and through the people of Tome. So glad to hear about the connections and the love song of the Kingdom already in motion. Love you both so much! Dad & Mom Reid
