We have been making doctor appointments for Amanda left and right, trying to get answers before we go to Australia. We have just launched a bunch of new labs and have more to send off as soon as the sample kits arrive. We see the primary care doctor on Wednesday; it was the first available appointment they had. The appointment is only to get a referral to cardiology. We are hoping to get seen quickly so we can get her cleared for Australia. This is not exactly how we anticipated starting a missions trip. We have insurance on our flights so we can cancel or postpone if necessary. The primary care doctor said she doesn't expect to find anything serious but we still need to check. ... See MoreSee Less

We were planning to head to Lake City today, but rounds of coughing all night convinced us we should give this a couple of more days. We are taking everyone out to walk in the sun on the beach to see if it helps. We had so much planned to get accomplished for this past week that didn't get done. With only nineteen days to get ready for Australia, it feels pretty cramped. With as much of this junk going around, I am really thankful we can get it out of the way before going to Australia. I am praying everyone's cough is completely gone by Monday. This sickness has been particularly hard on Amanda who was already dealing with a lot. She was doing really well but is pretty discouraged right now. I hope some sunshine will do her a lot of good! ~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Because of that, in 2023, we went to Dominica and Cayman Islands, received a VISA for Timothy to join our team in the US full time, rested for Amanda to recuperate (she is showing improvement), traveled to several meetings (youth meetings, camp meetings and a missions conference).

Happy New Year! We are taking the week to spend some time with the kids in the mountains. The reports of lots of snow turned out to be exaggerated; we were hoping for more than a little dusting in a few shady spots. I am not sure what happened to all that blizzard weather the newscaster was talking about, but it certainly didn't make its way here. As soon as we get home, we are revving up for what already looks like a very busy year, starting with a three-month trip to Australia at the end of February.

El que abarca todos los oficios no es diestro en ninguno, es una frase que la mayoría de la gente conoce, pero a mí me gusta más la frase completa, dice así: El que abarca todos los oficios no es diestro en ninguno, pero siempre es mejor que el que es diestro sólo en uno. Estamos de camino al estado de Washington para el Día de Acción de Gracias y durante los últimos días hemos estado conduciendo cientos de millas desde Jacksonville. Pedimos a un mecánico que revisara todo en nuestro Honda Pilot antes de partir. Pensábamos que estábamos listos para comenzar, pero ayer, justo después de pasar por Cheyenne, Wyoming, el auto comenzó a chisporrotear y perder potencia. Nos detuvimos en el siguiente desvío pero no había servicios ahí. Estábamos en medio de la noche y acababa de empezar a nevar (fue completamente la primera experiencia con nieve más loca). Hicimos un par de llamadas telefónicas a familiares y finalmente decidimos que si conducíamos lo suficientemente despacio podríamos llegar a Laramie, a unas 16 millas de distancia. En el camino, John encontró un AirBnB que llegamos a reservar rápidamente justo en el centro de la ciudad. Esta mañana nos levantamos antes del amanecer luchando por encontrar piezas y herramientas para reemplazar algunas bujías y bobinas. Afortunadamente, Advanced Auto tenía todas las piezas que necesitábamos y no tuvimos que regresar a Cheyenne para conseguirlas. A mis padres sordos nunca se les permitió conducir en Perú, por lo que nuestra familia nunca tuvo un automóvil y yo nunca tuve la oportunidad de aprender nada sobre mecánica automotriz. ¡Hoy tuve mi primera oportunidad de trabajar en un automóvil! En una videollamada, el hermano de Tricia me explicó los pasos para reemplazar 6 bujías y 2 bobinas. Estoy agradecido de que Dios me brinda oportunidades para aprender y estar mejor equipado para la diversidad de habilidades que son beneficiosas en el campo misionero.Jack of all trades, master of none is a phrase most people know, but I like the complete phrase better, it goes like this:Jack of all trades, master of none; but still always better than a master of one.We are on our way to Washington State for Thanksgiving and for the past couple of days we've been driving hundreds of miles from Jacksonville. We had a mechanic check everything out in our Honda Pilot before we left. We thought we were good to go, but yesterday just past Cheyenne, Wyoming, the car started to sputter and lose power. We crippled it along to the next exit but there were no services. It was the middle of the night and it had just started to snow (it sure was a wild first-time snow experience). We made a couple of phone calls to family and ultimately decided if we drove slowly enough we could manage to get to Laramie 16 miles away. En route John found an AirBnB we could book quickly right in the center of town.This morning we were up before the sun scrambling to find parts and tools to replace some sparkplugs and coils. Thankfully Advanced Auto had all the parts we needed and we didn't have to drive back to Cheyenne to get them.My deaf parents were never allowed to drive in Peru, so our family never owned a car and I never had the opportunity to learn anything about auto mechanics. I got my first opportunity to work on a car today! In a video call, Tricia's brother walked me through the steps of changing 6 sparkplugs and 2 coils.I'm grateful that God gives me opportunities to learn and be better equipped for the diversity of skills that are beneficial on the mission field.~Timothy ...

Al crecer en un ministerio para sordos en Perú, nuestra familia no tenía los medios para una gran celebración navideña, ni teníamos un árbol de Navidad ni grandes cajas de regalo para poner debajo. En cambio, aprendimos a contentarnos con tenernos unos a otros tratando de hacer que la Navidad sea especial al reflexionar sobre el mayor regalo de Dios: la salvación. Recuerdo que una Navidad cuando yo era un niño pequeño recibí un presente del programa caja de zapatos de Navidad. Era la caja más grande que me habían regalado en ese entonces y todavía recuerdo lo maravilloso que fue saber que alguien había hecho el esfuerzo de comprarme regalos. Ahora, varios años después, nuestro equipo fue invitado a una conferencia de Misiones que culminará este domingo. Tan pronto como entramos a la iglesia me llené de nostalgia y una emoción infantil al ver que estaban realizando el programa navideño de cajas de zapatos. Me sentí realmente agradecido cuando el pastor pidió a la congregación que pasara a orar por estas cajas después del servicio. Agradecido que ahora yo pueda orar para que estos regalos sean de bendición a otro niño, teniendo la esperanza de que Dios use a alguno de aquellos niños para Su gloria.Growing up in a deaf ministry in Peru, our family didn't have the means to have a big Christmas celebration, nor did we have a Christmas tree or large boxes to put underneath it. Instead, we learned to be content with having one another and trying to make Christmas special by reflecting on God's greatest gift of salvation. I remember one Christmas when I was a little kid receiving a shoebox Christmas present. It was the largest box I had ever been given, and I can still remember how wonderful it felt to know that someone had made the effort to purchase gifts for me.Now, several years later, our team was invited to a Missions conference ending Sunday. I was filled with nostalgia and childlike excitement as soon as we entered the church and saw that they were doing the shoebox Christmas program. I was truly grateful when the pastor asked the congregation to come and pray over these boxes after the service. Now I could pray that these gifts will bless another kid, in hopes that God will use some of those children for His glory.~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less

This week David and I started reading a story about Gladys Aylward, who ministered in China in the mid-1900's. The introduction spoke of how she not only helped to free the bound feet of young Chinese girls, but also shared the Gospel with them and their guardians, freeing hearts that were "bound tight with sin." I enjoy reading stories of missionaries who have gone before me. I especially cherish stories about single lady missionaries who served the Lord according to His calling, regardless of being unmarried. I thank God for good examples like Miss Aylward, for ladies with a missions calling to follow. ~ Anna ... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes, I feel disheartened when I see other missionaries reaching great numbers of souls. Oh, I rejoice over the souls that are saved, but in deaf ministry often the work is slow and the yield is not impressive. The more it looks like Jesus will soon return, the more I want to be sure my life counts for Him. Today, looking up Scripture about Israel in the last days, I stumbled across the parable of the talents. I suppose all of us desire to be the man who started with five talents and ultimately gained six more but I was encouraged by the man who only had two. He invested all that he had and his increase pleased his Lord. It was good to realize that serving the Lord is not about how much we have accomplished, it is about how much we have invested of what God has given us. Everyone has an equal opportunity to serve the Lord because He only asks us to wisely use what He has placed in our hands.~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

These last several weeks have been so difficult with Amanda. Two weeks ago, after a few courses of medication, we were so relieved to see her start to improve but it was short lived. After about four good days the confusion and sleeplessness returned along with a host of other things. We did some tests and found she had another UTI. More doctors and more tests are in our near future. Please keep praying for a full recovery. It is a blessing to know so many people who care. Thank you all. ... See MoreSee Less

Even though our travel plans have been interrupted, the time we are at home trying to help Amanda has been good in other ways as well. Slowly but surely, important household tasks are getting scratched off the "to do" list and little projects are getting accomplished. Out of the last two years, I don't think we were home even ten weeks of nights. We stayed on the road, but always with a nagging feeling about the growing list of household needs. I will be the first to admit that the timing of all this does not seem convenient, but I believe God has a purpose in it all. For now, I am thankful to have some time to focus on some household items that have been needing attention. There are more than a few. ~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Today I have been at home, and one of my housemates and I decided to prune back our grape vine. I was reminded of one of my favourite passages of scripture in John chapter 15, about the true vine. When I was baptised, I was asked which verses I would like to have written in calligraphy on a certificate to remember my baptism day. I chose this passage and it’s been a helpful passage to come back to time and again in my life. I’m thankful for how it has become richer to me in meaning over time. I am honoured that God continues to take time to prune out areas of my life that need to be purged, and helps me to grow in ways that are honouring to Him.~ Marie ... See MoreSee Less

Hurricane Idalia went by us In Jacksonville on the north, and we got mostly rain and wind. I thank the Lord for his protection and I pray for those affected by the hurricane that they will recover quickly. Also, I thank the responders for going out to help those in need, for the technicians working to restore electricity to those without power, and for the people praying for safety. ~John ...

It is about as hot and muggy in Jacksonville as it can get. We are busy batting down the hatches as we keep one eye on Idalia making it's way into the Gulf. We have not made a decision to leave town as of yet but it is still on the table for consideration. This morning, Timothy helped me clean out the shed and reorganize it so we can squeeze in the BBQ grill and some of the porch furniture. It was already on my to do list but a hurricane acomin' is some pretty good motivation. I am hoping the lawn people are going to show up before the storm. After four or five inches of rain the grass will be sky high and it will be days before they can mow. A day like today reminds me what a servant PJ always was. He always came to do storm prep either with us or for us. Most of the time he would show up with Elliano's coffee or lunch from Chick-Fil-A. He was a faithful friend and co-laborer. We have the car gassed up, the propane tanks full, and I am going to make a big pot of spaghetti. My worst concern is that the power could go out for a few days and everything in the fridge would spoil. Other than that there is always the chance the big tree in the front yard could come down but it has weathered a good number of storms through the years. Lots of people will have to worry about flooding but we are on some of the highest ground in our city. We should be good. We are praying for our many friends in Lake City. Current models show they will catch the full force of the storm but these things can change quickly. I have several more jobs to get finished today, so I need to get moving. We are trusting the Lord and so glad that our God is bigger than the storm.~ Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Today, Amanda drew her own prayer card, wanting it to be like a tract. She said, ""I want to give out the gospel tracts to people.". I thank the Lord she is showing improvement in her health and compassion for those who are lost. Thank you all for praying. Please keep on praying for her and her health!!~John ... See MoreSee Less

The last several weeks have been quite a roller coaster with Amanda. We have worked with several doctors and still don't have all the answers we need. This whole thing is one big snowball of physical, emotional, and spiritual needs all converging and conflicting at the same time. We have run a number of labs multiple times, contributing factors include a UTI, an amoeba, and scoliosis. Right now the latest two blood exams and the urine labs came back normal. We are asking God for great wisdom in helping Amanda and sticking pretty close to home while we sort this out. Thank you so much for your prayers.~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Praise the Lord with me! I sent my passport for renewal the first week of May, and received a notice in July that my application was incomplete and had to fill out the application a second time. I have been hearing about multiple passport service delays and some people missing important trips due to not getting passports back in time. This week I received my new passport! ~ Anna ...

I'm experiencing the crazy weather of a Florida summer for the first time!We have heat waves in the mornings with temperatures that go up to 95°F -which makes it really pleasant to work outside, (I'm joking), and then a torrential thunderstorm in the afternoon that can either last for a few minutes or for hours until the evening. Yesterday in the afternoon in fact it seemed that it was going to be bad because of the ugly clouds that were approaching, but I was wrong, instead I was left with this beautiful sunset.𝐈𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐦𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐞 𝐓𝐡𝐲 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐬 𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐦𝐲 𝐬𝐨𝐮𝐥.-Psalm 94:19 KJV The Olson family and inevitably the Go Team have been going through some rough weeks of uncertainty regarding the need that Amanda is going through and we thank you all for your prayers. We know that God has a purpose for all that He does and regardless of how bad the day seems to become, by the end of the day I can just be grateful for the blessings the He has given us. Thank you for your support as it is valuable to us. Continue praying for us. ¡Estoy experimentando el clima loco de un verano de Florida por primera vez!Tenemos olas de calor en las mañanas con temperaturas que suben hasta los 35 °C -lo que hace que sea muy agradable trabajar afuera (estoy bromeando), y luego una tormenta torrencial en la tarde que puede durar unos minutos o incluso horas hasta la noche. Ayer en la tarde, de hecho, parecía que iba a ir mal por las feas nubes que se acercaban, pero me equivoqué, en cambio me quedé con este hermoso atardecer.𝐄𝐧 𝐥𝐚 𝐦𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐝 𝐝𝐞 𝐦𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐬 𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨 𝐝𝐞 𝐦í, 𝐓𝐮𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐛𝐚𝐧 𝐦𝐢 𝐚𝐥𝐦𝐚.-Salmos 94:19 RVR1960 La familia Olson e inevitablemente el equipo Go hemos estado pasando unas semanas duras de incertidumbre con respecto a la necesidad que está pasando Amanda y les agradecemos a todos por sus oraciones. Sabemos que Dios tiene un propósito para todo lo que hace e independientemente de lo mal que se ponga, al final del día puedo estar agradecido por las bendiciones que nos ha dado. Gracias por su apoyo ya que es valioso para nosotros. Continúen orando por nosotros.~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less
