Back to our regularly scheduled programming…

9 Oct


Two days after coming home my mom is getting the hang of operating in her familiar environment again. It will be a long process of strengthening her muscles and her lungs as well as numerous home health, physical therapy, and physician visits. She tires easily, so please call her to arrange a visit and keep them to fifteen minutes or less. We don’t want to discourage visitors at all though, so don’t hesitate to arrange a time.
My brother Glenn is coming this evening to stay with her two weeks. Cathi, Anna and I will be returning to Costa Rica in the morning and coming back two weeks later to give Glenn a chance to go home.
So TeamDuggan will return to our irregular blog updates about life and ministry in Latin America. On Saturday Cathi and I will be working as nurses during a three day youth retreat in the Costa Rican mountains. A day after returning from there I will be going to three locations in Peru for a week. Stay tuned for pictures and updates.
If you’d like to know more about what God is doing in Latin America and the Caribbean, visit to read stories of God’s goodness and the power of the Gospel in action. I am privileged to serve as the leader for our teams in this region and love to share what God is doing all over this hemisphere.
And of course, we’d love to offer you an opportunity to partner with us in this ministry. That’s not a euphemism for “would you like to give to our support?” We have many that can’t join us financially but can commit to pray with us and perhaps go on a short-term trip.
In addition to this blog you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social platforms. Just search for BDugganRN and you’ll probably find me.
Finally, I’d like to express my deep gratitude for all the caring comments during this time. It was so encouraging to hear from so many of you as you prayed for my mom and our family. We had visitors to this site from twenty-one countries around the world in the last few weeks, and I received notes of encouragement in several languages. Thank you, and I ask you to join me in offering praise to the Father who showed great mercy and compassion, much of it expressed through you.

    I second Brian’s deep felt love for each of you who prayed, cared for us as a family as we navigated this crisis, and who offered different ways to come alongside us. We will welcome some new missionaries from North Carolina to our team after returning from camp out , and ask for continued prayers for Merrimom’s strength and stamina in the weeks to come. it is not easy to keep an Energizer bunny down though!

    I am so thankful that you kept us all up to date during these past few weeks. Thankful for the opportunity to be able to visit with you all and to spend some time with you and thankful for my friends continuing healing. Many blessings to all of you and safe travels! Lisa
