18 August 2015 Update!

Hello from Oxford, MS!

We are settling in to life in Mississippi. Jackson is immersed in life at Oxford High School and we're getting Haylee ready to move to Mississippi College this weekend. Liesa and Jeff are serving as Missionaries In Residence with our home, sending church, First Baptist Oxford. It was very difficult for us to leave behind our friends and family in Oaxaca but we are enjoying our time reconnecting with our friends and family in Mississippi. We are all having our 'culture re-entry' moments but all is going well. We are so grateful for your prayer support!

We'd love to have you join us in praying for these requests!
  • Pray that our work with First Baptist Oxford would be an encouragement and would help reach the lost of our community.
  • Pray for Jackson as he adjusts to life in Mississippi and at Oxford High School. LOTS of interesting conversations to come over these next few months.
  • Pray for Haylee as she begins her college career at Mississippi College. Pray for her to find great friends, learn to discipline her time, and for the Father to direct her steps.
And, continue to pray for southern Mexico. Here are some links to some great stories about what the Father is doing through our amazing team and partners in Oaxaca. Just click the links:
Thank you so much for your prayer support and your giving through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering!

You all are a blessing!
Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson

Here are some photos of life in Mississippi...

It's a little toasty.

I get to jog through the Ole Miss campus every day.
Somebody's gotta do it.

Jackson is in 11th Grade at Oxford High!
