Well, another trip has come to an end. God is so good. We have deepened existing relationships and created so many more new ones. At our medical clinics we served nearly 1,400 people, both the drama and mime teams presented the Gospel to thousands more, and the childrens team ministered to hundreds of children in schools and orphanages. The basketball team was able to build relationships with players from many different schools and towns, and the service team left enduring evidence of God's compassion through fresh paint, a new roof and a reconstructed wall. By Kingdom measures the trip was an amazing success - praise be to God!

Through out the trip we saw God work in amazing ways, both among those we served and us as we served. He had one last surprise for us on our homecoming day. As you may remember, the team was divided over 3 different flights on 3 different airlines, flying through 3 different connecting cities. We all left at different times and had expected to arrive in Minneapolis over the span of about an hour. As it turns out, through an interesting set of delays and tail- and head-winds all 3 flights arrived in Minneapolis within 5 minutes of each other! As a result we were able to enjoy the full-throated welcome home from the crowd of families and friends. A wonderful, final encouragement to all the students and staff who had given so much of themselves in the preceding two weeks to the people of Guatemala and El Salvador.

We can't thank you all enough for your prayers and support. Without out supporters none of this would have been possible. Know that because of you the kingdom of God has been expanded and the churches in San Marcos, Malacatan, Guatemala City and San Salvador are greatly encouraged.

Stay tuned. It won't be long and we will be starting up planning for OCA 2012. And please do not stop praying for our partners in Central America as well as the people we ministered to. Their needs go on, even as we return to our "normal" routines!
