By Pastor Walter Ries, Jr.
We are grateful for the presence of a new team member, Katie Lane, who comes to us from Peru. Katie served almost two years with our Peruvian mission team, and now, for two months, will be finishing her service with us, working in particular at our school. Katie, who hails originally from Minnesota, speaks Spanish well and has aided us immensely in implementing new curriculum in the school, and with organizing groups that want to visit in June. She has also helped establish an English conversation class in Santiago to meet people and introduce them to our mission in Santiago as well. we are also grateful for her translation skills and in particular her attention to some of our school children who have needed more one on one time. We are grateful to our Lord for her cheerful willingness to serve and her Christ-centered approach to all!
