Ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Costa Rica, Guatemala & Nicaragua with Praying Pelican Missions, networking with local churches and connecting mission teams to  life- changing ministry opportunities.
How are the Kids?
Trying on their new uniforms!
Many people have asked us how the kids are handling the transition of our family moving back to the States.  We just returned from spending five weeks in Florida, and we think that time has helped a lot! 

We were able to visit the kid's school while classes were being held so they could see it in action.  We also were able to secure a house in Coral Springs!  We drove by the house many times as we spent time driving the local streets to see what the community has to offer.

At the end of our time in Florida, the kids felt much more comfortable about moving, but they are going to miss their lives in Costa Rica so much!

The video below was taken the first week in Florida at our annual PPM meetings.  There is another missionary family that is leaving the Dominican Republic around the same time as us.  Click on the video to watch so that you know better how to pray for our children during this transition.

Malachi and Isaiah are now back in school in Costa Rica finishing up the semester.  Meanwhile, Reagan and Abigail will be serving on mission trips throughout the summer!

Housewarming Registry!
When we moved to Costa Rica 3 years ago we moved with only suitcases in hand.  And we are coming back to the USA the same way, leaving the majority of our possessions in Costa Rica to bless the people there.

Many people have asked us what we will need upon our return so we have put together a few registries if you'd like to help us set up our home.  The gifts purchased are set up to be shipped to a friend's house in Florida who will deliver them to us the week we arrive.  

Click on the logos to be directed to the registries!  Thank you so much!

Guatemala June 1-5
Nate will be traveling with our full time CR staff, Jonathan, to Guatemala June 1-5 as part of his new role in leading Operations in Guatemala and Nicaragua.  Nate will be spending time training three staff that will be leading the majority of the trips there this summer.  Nate will also be meeting with some of our partner pastors to begin building relationships with them as we gear up for an amazing summer of ministry in Guatemala! 
Biggest Summer of Ministry in CR!
Last week we began our largest summer of ministry in PPM Costa Rica history!  Over the next 12 consecutive weeks we will see 781 missionaries serving all over the country.  We have about 30 staff trained to lead these amazing mission trips as we work to encourage the believers, evangelize the lost, and build up the local churches.
Our role will be changing soon, but our needs only become greater as our influence expands.  To support us on a monthly basis, go to

A Tribute to Darrell's Mother

Last month Darrell's birth mother, Veronica Agyeman, went home to be with the Lord.  Veronica always had Darrell's best interests at heart.  We vividly remember the day when she first called us and asked if we would take Darrell in to be part of our family.  When she would call to check in on Darrell, she always said that she was praying for all of us.  We know this to be so true.  She encapsulated a woman that truly prayed!  We know that Darrell is the godly man he is today because of the power of a praying mother!  She loved Darrell and his older sister, Ama, with all of her heart and we are deeply saddened by her departure from this earth.   Please keep Darrell and Ama in your prayers as they grieve the loss of their beloved mother.  If you would like to reach out personally to Darrell, his email address is: 

Nathan, Laura, Darrell  (in the USA), Reagan, Abigail,  Malachi,  & Isaiah
