Buenos Dias de Peru!
I’m excited to report that our family made the decision to fly to Arequipa, Peru to begin language school while we still had the opportunity!
With reports of Argentina remaining closed to U.S. tourists until June, and the likelihood of other South American countries tightening restrictions as well; we decided to do what we can with the time we have to make progress for Argentina. Number one priority on this list is, learn Spanish!
We begin Spanish language school on Feb 1, 2021 and are excited about taking this next step in our ministry on the mission field. It has been 19 years since I spent any time in Arequipa, and I am just so thrilled that we have this opportunity.
As with any move like this, there have been a few bumps along the way, but the Lord has proved faithful time and time again. We have rented an apartment, furnished it, and hope to be able to sell our “lightly used” furnishings when we leave for Argentina. It can be a challenge knowing that we currently have a near furnished house in Argentina and haven’t been able to utilize it since we rented it nearly a year ago.
As you can imagine, the cost of furnishing two places can be quite substantial. We also have a vehicle waiting on us in Argentina, and now find ourselves needing one in Peru while we are here. Taxis are extremely common and accessible, however with Covid restrictions, many taxis do not want to carry our family of 5.
Please be in prayer with us about a vehicle, and the additional costs incurred by renting an apartment in Arequipa.
We are so grateful to each of you for your faithful love, prayers, and support of our family!
Your Missionaries to Argentina,
Stephen, Ashlee, Peyton, Eli, and Neyland

Praying for you all and for God to increase your ability to learn the Spanish language so when you do get to Argentina you’ll be ready to hold conversations and share the gospel. With love & prayers,
