After a few weeks home in the DR, we're packing our bags again! It's time for the 2014 edition of Dustin's summer bus trip through Central America, and this year Emily gets to go too! In the interest of being high-tech, we've created a Google Map to help you to follow our travels (see above map). If you click on the red location markers, you can see which dates we will be in which city - they are approximations accurate within a day or so! But here's an overview: Dustin left for Guatemala on June 23rd; Emily joins him in Mexico on June 30th, and from there we go to El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica, where we will end our trip with the CSI International Conference July 27-31! The purpose of our trip is to visit each of the Christian Surfers national directors and leaders throughout Central America to encourage them, support their ministries, and get to know them better. We are excited to do this trip as a couple and to see how God will use Emily to minister to the leaders' wives and families.
Please pray for us as we travel. Pray for safety and smooth travels via bus. Pray for wisdom as we interact with CS leaders and that we would speak love and truth to them. Pray for the CS ministries in each country we will be visiting. And pray for the International Conference, of which Dustin is the main organizer. Conference is the bi-annual gathering of CS leaders from all over the world, and will be a great time of fellowship, learning, and encouragement!
Check back here once a week or so to read about our adventures in each country!
