So we are in the middle of our 6th month in South America! That sounds like someone else's life... It is pretty surreal. Especially since often we humans don't always do a great job of seeing how great the blessings truly are in any given moment... It is pretty neat to be here! I want to ask you all to pray with us about some of the people we have been inviting to Bible study...so far our Tuesday night study is just Cole and I plus the 40/40's responsible for teaching... Help us fill the house!
~Laura - a gal working in our favorite ice cream shop. We see her practically every day on our way to the church
~Soledad - shop keeper right across from the ice cream shop
~Juan Ramon - sweet older man, a peddler, helped us so very kindly when we needed help transporting a propane tank. He asked us about when church services are but as of yet he has not come
~Lillian - a new friend at church, interested in coming to Bible study but again, has not yet made it, has also attended Jehova's Witness and Mormon churches, she has little girl Reese's age, we have invited her over to play and but this too hasn't worked out yet
Neighbors - in particular the ones across the street, they are Catholic
These are the people tha twe are praying for and pursuing right now...Please pray for God to open the doors of relationship and the Lord's word.
Please also pray for stren
gth, focus, servanthood and humility within our team. We always need your support through prayer. Your pleas on our behalf actually and totally affect what we are doing here. Please believe this.
Also keep in prayer the Short-term team that is here working right now. They are delightful and encouraging!!
We think of you all often and in many ways feel even closer to you here in being far away...We are so blessed to be serving with you as the body of Christ... I hope you are enjoying the last bits of summer and begin the new season refreshed!
Grace and Peace Always in Christ,
