Our band in the newspaper

Liceo Bilingue La Puerta

The copy of Nuestro Diario Sept. 16 page 4 featuring the band of the Liceo Bilingue La Puerta.

The Guatemalan school my family and I started got into the newspaper today for its courage marching through drenching rain. Their courage, sacrifice and service to Christ is an example to us First World Christians who find all the reasons to NOT soldier through. And they make me proud. I see that 16 years of labor on the mission field was not in vain but left hardcore disciples.

The Liceo Bilingue La Puerta‘s marching band competed and won a spot in the national Independence Day parade (Sept. 15 for Guatemala). And they marched on despite rain that got them wet to the bones.

  1. Having marched in bands/parades from the 4th grade through my time in the 25th Infantry Division band, I both empathize completely and applaud their commitment. May we all have such commitment to the cause of Christ!

  2. Awesome! You should be very proud 🙂

  3. To see your labor has not been in vain has it’s own reward.
    You see a victory march.
    You see your heart keeping beat to the music.
    You see souls committed to Christ because you and your wife were willing to go.
    You see lovely Christians you will meet again, if not here; in Glory.
    You see every sacrifice you made, every tear you cried, every prayer you prayed, every heartache and disappointment you endured bring forth fruit for Jesus.
    Satisfaction? Indeed!
    Joy? Indeed!
    Was it worth it? Indeed!
    Will Jesus say, “well done? Indeed!

    Brother, I appreciate your love for Jesus. You encouraged me time and again with the likes you have faithfully left on my blog. Thank you.may The Lord fulfill the desire of your heart.
