The Reason for the Foundation


I finally witnessed it with my own eyes. Luis and I visited the local market near Capulispungo where the farmers, like Angel and Rosa, sell their products. I had always heard that they don't sell well, and I wanted to understand the problem firsthand. Luis and I asked at the market how much a sack of potatoes was selling for. The answer was, "Twelve dollars." We didn't expect to see anyone we knew, but in a few minutes we had a divine appointment with Angel and Rosa from Capulispungo. We found them selling three sacks of potatoes. Angel wasn't sure of the going price. We talked for a while and left them with their potatoes. A while later I met them again in the market and asked, "How much did you sell your potatoes for?" He answered, "Five dollars a sack." I couldn't believe that they sold them for five dollars, when, twenty feet away, they were selling for twelve. For now, I assume they just accept it as "that's the way it is." But it doesn't have to be that way. That's why we started the Foundation: to educate the farmers on how to market their products. It's going to take a lot of work and time, but I just can't stand around, watch, and do nothing. James 2:14-17


Treasure in heaven and on earth


We have been in the US for three weeks now. We arrived the night my father passed away. He had lived a full life of service to the Lord and was greeted at the door with the words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of your Master!"


We have invested our time here with my mom, being here with the family and giving her support. She seems to be doing very well. We have helped clear out my father's office space: a total of 110 boxes of papers had to be checked, sorted, and recycled, as well as 35 boxes of books.


We found lots of treasures! Here is my sister, Carol, and my mom, enjoying the calendar where my parents recorded the day of her birth in 1967.

We continue


We continue as heirs of his example until we meet again in the Lord´s presence.
