“We are Back in Costa Rica!”
The rumors are true: Gary returned late August, and Karen a few weeks later! This means that we are now starting our 21st year of ministry in Central America.
Gary is teaching three courses and working away on his new commentary on 1-2 Timothy for Wycliffe Associates. It will be part of a 2-volume work that will be “open-source,” that is, free for anyone to use, download, translate. It is designed to help those who are translating the Bible into the 2700 languages that have none.
Our adoptive grandson Sammy is glad to have us back! He is 11 years old now – and he would be in school this week, except for the fact that there is a general strike for the past three weeks.
Karen just spent time in Honduras, where she was giving her regular conference to Missionary Kids.
Thanks so much for helping us to return to the field, ready to go!
Gary is Teaching and Preaching in Spanish again!
Last week I spoke at a tiny local church that is run by our friend Ana Rita. You can get some jumpy video of the service by going to YouTube and entering this address https://youtu.be/LDGg7KPJq6E
Praise and Prayer
- Pray for Gary to find a publisher for his new book
- Praise that we have several new donors!
- And PRAISE that we are back in Costa Rica!
Many blessings to you! Gary and Karen Shogren

Hi Gary: Glad to hear that you guys are back in Costa Rica. I’m still looking for a missionary assignment in Costa Rica. If you know of anything, please advise. God Bless ! Pastor Emory Marshall
