CEB's 15th Anniversary
You may remember our friends, missionaries Jerry and Connie White. They've lived in Paraguay for pretty close to 20 years, and they are the pastors of Iglesia CEB (Bible Teaching Center Church). They've been a great blessing to us, encouraging and advising us, hosting prayer seminars, sharing their teaching resources, and occasionally surprising us with some of the best homemade cookies this side of the equator. The church is a lighthouse of God's love, reaching out with ministries to the community, prison, and children's hospital, to name a few.

We were honored to be invited to the church's 15th anniversary celebration in June, just a week or so after the Whites arrived back in Paraguay from their recent stateside time. This was a special service full of songs, presentations, and God's vision for the continued work in this area. A special treat was meeting four of the original "founding families" who are still active today. Afterward, we enjoyed an asado lunch--dinner on the ground, we'd call it, although we ate at tables.... ;) What a joy to be a part of their special day, and our prayer is that God continues to bless this church as they continue to bless Paraguay.
