Jordan's Memorial Service

As many of you have heard, our child Jordan miscarried this past Saturday. Today we had a memorial service at the public cemetary here in Cochabamba. I told Denise that our hearts really are here now, we have had a birth and a death.

About a week ago, there was a chicken pox outbreak at the Casa De Amor Orphanage. As a complication of that, one of the children, Gabriella, went to be with Jesus. Jennifer, the founder and director of the Casa De Amor (and our great friend), allowed us to use Gabriella's grave as the place to hold the service.

Here are some photos for you.

Please continue to pray for us as we grieve together.
