John has been to Ecuador 5 times, the last being in 2011. When he took on a full time teaching job with the Willcox School District (Band & Choir) he no longer was able to go and truly misses those marvelous experiences. Here are some pictures from his second trip to Ecuador in May of 2008 to the city of Riobamba

We actively partnered with Pastor John and his Youth Ministry at Wynne Chapel. We have taken two work trips to Naco, Sonora, Mexico with both youth and adults...We fixed some leaks in the roof and painted the girls dormitories. Here's a few of the orphans with a couple of the student workers.
The R & R Ranch also helped the Youth of Wynne Chapel, and consequently the Youth of Willcox, by purchasing a portable sound system. The Youth Group went every other week on Wednesday nights and held services in the town of Willcox. We also helped put on a concert in June. 6 young people came to know the Lord as a result of these events.


March 15-20 John Chapman of R & R and Richard Searle of Wynne Chapel in Cochise, Arizona led 6 high school seniors on a mission trip to Navojoa and the surrounding villages. (pictures unavailable at this time)

NOVEMBER 28 & 29, 2003- "Reflection" sang at the 3rd annual "Old Pearce Holiday Festival" in Pearce, Arizona. There were 2 other groups performing as well, both Christian!

The "Fiddlin' Friends" from the "Old Time Fiddlers" made up of Don Eskue and Clarence Irwin. Great guys and musicians!

The "New Family Tradition"
is what Jeff Bost calls his group. They pastor a congregation in Silver Creek, Arizona. A tremendous way to raise a family.

"Salt Creek" was back with us again this year. Great guys and a wonderful band from the Sierra Vista area.

Report on our trip to Mexico: September 15-20, 2003

We distributed crayons, toys, etc. from the people at Wynne Chapel

Clothing, too!

This is Tomas (in the bed). He donated the property for the Jitonhueca church.

We staked at the foundation so Manuel (a local) could begin work on the septic.

The next morning he had already done this!

We transported people from San Pedro, Rodeo, Navojoa and Jitonhueca to worship services


We purchased a new amplifier and microphone for the Jitonhueca congregation.


We went witnessing in the Navojoa neighborhoods. 9 people accepted the Lord. This is Paco.

7 people accepted the Lord in Jitonhueca.

We threw a "party" for the people after the Jitonhueca worship service. Praise the Lord.


Cowboy Camp: Report

Reflection sang at many of the services

John worked in conjunction with the Camp Pastor, Rev. Keith Kersey to plan the music for the four services each day.

Meal time was always a highlight!

3 young people got together to bring special music (Michelle, Nicole and Michael)

Glorieta Music Week: Report

A beautiful campus...

A student ensemble

John's favorite class was "Leading Student Worship. Sharon's was Basic Theory and Modulation (for piano). Bea enjoyed choir the most and we all loved the Bible Studies with Pastor Brent Taylor from First Baptist Carrollton, Texas. We had choir practice every morning at 9, worship at 10:15, followed by a day full of classes. In the evening Bible Study was at 6:15 followed by special musical concerts.
