Bolivia 2016 - Update #6

Hi friends and family, We arrived safely back home last Thursday at 2pm, albeit a little travel weary and grungy. Several things happened after the last update we sent, so we wanted to send you a final letter. So many of the details are already getting fuzzy, so this is our best effort in giving you a picture of our precious last days with the Mojicas. After a scenic tri...

Bolivia 2016 - Update #4

Dear Gateway Family… The days continue to be full and so does my tummy. One of the things that we typically run into is that our hosts are eager to make sure that we eat well, but that is only part of the truth.

Bolivia 2016 - Udpate #1

Hi friends and family! Thank you for your prayers! Our time in transit went without a hitch. The kids slept the first red eye leg of our flight, and played and ate the rest of the way. As that’s 17 hours of travel where the kids had happy hearts, we give all glory and praise to God as that’s definitely not within our finite capabilities to make them do. ;) We...

Bolivia 2015 - Update #2 - Team 2 has arrived..

We (Dennis and I) arrived yesterday evening after a long 24+ hours. The start of our first leg from Oakland to LAX didn’t go so well as our flight was delayed for over 3 hours. Eventually, we arrived at LAX at 12:30am, and napped for 2 hours at the hotel before heading back to the airport for our flight at 6am. The rest of our flights were pretty smooth, and we final...
