Juan Alberto Newsletter March 1999


Greetings to our Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We just wanted to drop a note and update you all on our exciting week here in Texas. Our little girl decided that she would like to come 3 weeks early so on March 11 at 2:30 p.m. Abigail Elisabet Rivas arrived in this world. She was 6 lbs. 5.2 oz. and 17 1/4 inches long. Apparently she is going to take after mom and dad in the height department.

Abigail is doing very well. So far she has been a great baby. She changes everyday and is becoming more alert each day. Grandma and Grandpa Lund were able to come from Iowa and have been a such a big help. We give thanks to God for this wonderful gift that He has given us.


Plans to go to the Dominican Republic are moving forward. We have a house to rent that is near Santiago Christian School where I will be teaching. It is within walking distance which will be very convenient except maybe during rainy season. Then it will be a nice muddy walk.

Alberto has been busy packing things to send to the DR. We have some different groups who will be going to the DR in the next few months that will be taking some of our boxes down for us. God has really blessed us in providing these groups for us. It helps us to save money and still get necessary items to the DR.


We appreciate your support and prayers as we continue to get settled and set up our ministry here according to God's will.

We can also be reached by writing
