Goodbye 2014 - Hello 2015

Another successful year end!

IBP ended it's second bimester with an emotional graduation ceremony of 15 students.

Fellow missionary and previous area director Don Exley was the invited guest speaker.

After bidding farewell to the first and second year students, Eddie led some of the graduates (3rd year) on a 12 day promotion and ministry trip to the southernmost city of the continent, visiting 12 towns and 14 churches.

It was also exciting to attend the wedding of two IBP alumni and recent grads, Javier Pino and Jessica Ibarra.  What a sweet way to bring this ministry trip to a close.

Then just a couple of days later our daughter, Felicia, arrived from the states to be with us for a couple of weeks during her Christmas vacation.  She encouraged us to get way as a family to  catch up and just be together.   So we headed south all the way to the Perito Moreno Glacier -  one of the natural wonders of the world.  It was so nice to be "four" again!

Needless to say, she thoroughly enjoyed her time being back in Argentina, the place she grew up.  Her friends were thrilled to see her again and she took advantage of every available moment.

We hope your holidays were pleasant, filled with special memories, and we wish you all the best that 2015 has in store.  
Many blessings to you for 2015!
