Wow....where does the time go? We just remember when Micah was a baby and now He is 4yrs old. We just wanted to share some of Micah's pictures. Today is his birthday and we are so blessed to celebrate his birthday.

Missions Conference 2008

Wow! Where do I start? We have been so blessed the last week. We have been in California at the Calvary Chapel Missions Conference. It has been a wonderful time here seeing old friends and meeting new ones. All of the speakers were so good, as hey exhorted us to keep the faith, love the lost and press forward for all that the Lord has in store. They all brought very encouraging messages.

We met missionaries from all over the world. We also had some time to spend with friends from Italy. David brought a few guys with him for the conference, it was really great to see them and spend some time with them. We also had some visitors come all the way from New Jersey, Matt and Jess Andersen came to the conference along with the Langley's from Virginia. Niel and Vanessa joined from Albuquerque for the conference as well as see some of their family.

Before the conference we were able to see Mike and Sofia from Sweden. It was great to see them and hear all that the Lord is doing in their lives.

We had so much fun seeing our friends, but we also missed several from Okinawa and Iwakuni, friends that are very close to our hearts couldn't make it to the conference this year. Please pray for us and out future as we look unto the Lord in 08 for all that He might have for us. We rejoice in all that He has in store for the Velarde's

Charis 3 mos

We just wanted to share Charis new pictures and she is growing and growing.....and Hannah, Micah and Silas just adores her and loves her dearly.



For New Years Eve our family was able to attend a worship night with Ernest and Nicole at CCALBQUERQUE.
Ofcourse after a night of worship we couldn't resist to go out for our last meal of the year together at Mimi's Cafe.

We pray that you may all have a blessed New Year and that we will all grow closer to the LORD Jesus Christ.
