A message from Bobbi Updegraff for your support of Hogar Renacer.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.  We had a great team experience at Hogar Renacer.  So much to update you on!  We will send a newsletter shortly.  In a nutshell our children are in the capable hands of Julio and Nabey (Spanish missionaries replacing Elisabeth) and their family. Elisabeth is well and playing a support part in the ministry.  Our kids are thriving.  All is not ideal, but we appreciate the strides to make things better. Do look for our upcoming newsletter.  Thank you all for your prayers! 

 I do have photos and a slideshow video if you would like to have a copy let me know.

We will be planning a Friends of Renacer reunion. Let us know when you cannot attend and we will do our best to accommodate.

Looking forward to all God will accomplish with our faithfulness.  Blessings, Bobbi Updegraff=
