Reconstructing the Mission House “Hidden Paradise”

For many years the mission in La Barra del Colorado has served the village and people around the Colorado River and the San Juan River. Many of you have come and stayed at the mission to serve and share the Gospel, giving hope to the lost. Many have stayed at the mission “Hidden Paradise”, and have experienced a fresh renewal and change from God.

The Mission House “Hidden Paradise” is in need of reconstruction. It literally fell. (a few years ago Carlos did fall through the floor planks). It looks like a tornado came in and did it’s work. Getting supplies to the mission house will be challenging seeing that we would have to get everything from a city that is 2 1/2 hour drive on dirt road and then a 1 to 1/1/2hr. boat ride.

In May 2022 Carlos and I will be going to hike sections of the Appalachian Trail. Carlos will hike a few summits and fire towers about 15 miles / 24 kilometers. He will hike the Max patch trail to the summit and back. I will hike a few hiking sections, from Albert Mountain to Nantahala Outdoor Center and from Max Patch to Hot Springs and Lovers leap about 70miles / 124 kilometers.

Our desire and hope is that hiking the Appalachian trail will be a fund raiser for the reconstruction of the Mission house “Hidden Paradise” in La Barra del Colorado. So we can continue to love and share the Good News to the river villages and be able to take other missionaries and mission teams to help share the Good News.

God Is Good All The Time… All The Time God Is Good

Give thanks to the God of godsHis love endures forever.

Psalms 136:2

The end of 2021was very fruitful. We were encourage and blessed by many that came and worked along side us. There were 6 precious young ladies from Global Tribe outreach who came to The Cave of Adullam for 3 weeks to serve, love and share the Good News. Over 600 children were given a meal and Christmas gifts along with the true meaning of Christmas while we were Caroling. God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

During part of there stay we had a short term missions team from Oklahoma that blessed the children with back packs and school supplies. Also “One Family at a Time ” was able to give over 60 families food bags. The Love of Jesus Christ in action. God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

Then what a fun and wonderful fellowship time we had December 31st. Missionaries, minister, pastors, foreigners came together at The Cave of Adullam to worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

Oh how lovely to see women being ministered to when we had the WOW (Women of Wisdom) Conference. Over 35 women stayed at The Cave of Adullam for a time to be renewed in Christ, refreshed, restored and encouraged to continue the race put before them. Here I am Lord send me! God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

Conference for teaching and advising for moms and dads was a day of recapturing the meaning of discipling our children and nurturing them with knowledge as well as spiritual guidance. It was full of testimonies and new teaching methods, information and curriculums, plus encouragement to all the new teaching moms and dads. This captured the true essence of God’s love for us Moms and Dads. We are not alone when discipling our children, He is with us always. God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

We were able to enter La Barra Del Colorado (jungle) in September. We had a wonderful tiime in the fishing village Being the HANDS and FEET of Jesus. Our good friend and Pastor Orville Beckford passed away in this year. Please pray for his family.

Our wood frame mission house has fallen not sure what needs to be done. We will enter la Barra delColorado at the end of February and see what the needs for the mission house and community is.

Update: Thanks to our Lord and your PRAYERS and SUPPORT Carlos is healing. Everyday step by step, minute by minute there is DIVINE healing. Nicole, Liani, Vanessa, Fabian and Vitta, Chrystel, Elliott, Kayden and Zeke are all well. Amy got married to Ferdi Beijert. Johnny turned Tough man Sixteen and we have 3 beautiful grandbabies.

We at The Cave of Adullam are so thankful for you. For your love, encouragement and support. As we begin a new year let us remember. God is good all the time… And all the time God is good.

“Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.  Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land.  They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 1:17-19
