An update from the Kurtz

Hi Friends!

God is good all the time...All the time, God is good!

It's been a while since I wrote an update to our followers, friends & family in Christ.
Titus helping!
We have already shared our volunteer job from mid January thru the end of February in Adrian Camp & Conference Center in Georgia. For those who missed it, please look at our Facebook page.
From mid March to  the end of May, we were in California helping our biggest and caring supporter to paint the exterior of his house, fences & bed. Lots of hours, but very rewarding to  see the final product.


Enjoying time with friends

From the beginning of June to the end of August, we served in Golden Bell Camp & Conference Center in Divide Colorado. 

I mainly  worked as one of their RV Park Hosts, together with other volunteers. I was responsible of checking in & out campers, cleaning restrooms & being sure things around were working & looking OK. I also put some hours in their Snack Shack, doing laundry, making beds, etc.

Gary, my energizer bunny, served all over the place, either on his own or together with other volunteer brothers, maintaining roads on a skid steer, building & fixing things  in different places of the camp.

Since he loves working with wood, he enjoyed building a cross and barn doors for VBS at a local church, bathroom benches and billboard for RV park, sound board for the chapel here at the camp, furniture legs, etc.


Today, we left for Texas to volunteer with Samaritan's Purse rebuilds in Houston & Pearland. First, Gary will spend some time with the boys while I travel to visit my family in Costa Rica. Then, he starts with SP on the 9th and I will join him on the 16th.  We are also praying (please be in prayer with us for this) to be accepted to work with Operation Christmas Child in Charlotte , NC.

With that said, we are asking our friends and family in Christ to please keep us in their prayers:
  • To keeps us strong, encouraged and persevering no matter the circumstances.
  • For decision making as where to go and serve, and safety while on the road to our different destinations. 
  • For the Holy Spirit’s coverage, guidance and discernment to use opportunities wisely to share the message of The Cross while serving the needy.
  • For Financial Support: Would you prayerfully consider contributing with our expenses? Any amount will truly bless and help us as every seed that is planted in our ministry has always been multiplied in ways beyond our understanding, simply in His supernatural ways.

Looking Back to our Last Six Months

God is good all the time! All the time God is good!

Hi y’all! 
It has been a long time since we have shared any updates as to what we have been doing or where we have been.

Our last missionary post on our Facebook  was at the end of August 2018 when we left The Billy Graham Cove. After that, we went to visit our  brother in Christ Doyle who we met while serving with Samaritan Purse in rebuilds in Tarboro, NC. During our stay with him & his family, Gary helped him relocate a outdoor storage shed & install a new roof on it. 

We finished the month of August & started September by visiting our dear Tia (Aunt) Carol in Fearrington Village, NC. Thru the years, she has always made sure to take us to very interesting places.  This time was no exception.
The first two week of September, we stayed at dear friend & brother in Christ's farm in Franklin, NC. One of my (and Titus') favorite places because of the Smoky Mountains surrounding us. As part of our nature, wherever we are, we always look for something to do & help out others with the gifts our God has blessed us with. So Gary pressured washed the outside of the main house, another double wide rental house and large storage shed. I cleaned                                      all the windows & washed the screens.

Then, since financial support to our ministry has not been as expected, we  looked for a temporary job to save funds to take care of our bills and be able to continue with our missions. From September 17th to December 21st, we worked with the Amazon Camper Force in a FulFillment Center  in Shephersville KY. 

From Christmas through the first two weeks of January, we spent in North Carolina at our friends. Then, thank God for His favor, the weather was good in the Northeast so we went to visit family & friends.  We spent a few days with our dear Aunt
Maggie & visit with cousins & friends in Pensylvannia. In New York, Gary's sister, Robin, treated us like kings & queens while our visit to her house in Long Island.

Currently we have been working for the past month in Adrian Camp & Conference Center in Adrian Georgia from here we are going to spend some time with our boys in TX and then off to Golden Bell Camp & Conference Center in Divide, CO. 

We simply love what what the Lord has called us to do, so we ask you please to keep us & our ministry in your prayers. Also, please prayerfully consider supporting our ministry. If you feel the prompting of the Holy Spirit to do so, please follow the following link:

God Bless!
