Church Planting among the Nahuatl

Little Crawling Stone Lake & Vehicle Excitement

Leave a comment

The past two weeks have been pretty crazy to say the least…July 1st, right after breaking 100,000 miles our Santa Fe decided to call it quits, at least for a little while. It broke down as Pete was driving through a Waukesha neighborhood on his way to a friend’s after work. It took a day of diagonosis, and boy, was it ever an emotional one. The timing belt had snapped and we were originally told there was probably engine damage which could cost us upwards of $2,000-$3,000! With a few phone calls made, and family and friends praying the final diagnosis came in, there was no engine damage! It seemed that the sensor for our crank shaft needed replaced, and the timing belt itself, which ended up being a third of what we thought we might end up paying. We truly saw the hand of the Lord in protecting even our vehicle and leading us to trust His perfect timing and sovereignty even over a situation like this. Thanks everyone for praying!!

Three days later we headed up north for a time of relaxation and fun with Liesl’s family. The last few summers Mike and Alice have treated all of the kids and their spouses and families to a week of fun at a cottage on Little Crawling Stone Lake. We spend the week catching up with each other, boating, sunning, eating, playing games, chasing the nieces & nephews/grandkids, and enjoying each others’ company.

This year Dad attempted waterskiing and we were actually all pretty impressed, the balance and coordination is all still there. Jay and Pete took some pretty crazy tube rides, and Maddie and Paxton both went for their first rides on the jet ski. Lots of good food and conversation was had by all and the weather was gorgeous. We will sure miss going on vacation with everyone next year, but we know the Lord has us in Mexico and we are even more excited about what those new experiences will bring.

Here are some pictures to enjoy from the week.
