Dear Pastors and Praying friends,
Thank you for your many prayers on our behalf. We have been busy visiting supporting churches and some new churches as well. We have been blessed with safety along the way and God has provided our every need. We have been awed at the ways God has used to supply our needs and been taught a few times to never underestimate God’s power. We are thankful to Iglesia Bautista Monte de los Olivos for taking us on as one of their missionaries. We are in need of raising about 20% more support while home. We also want to thank the faithfulness of our many supporting churches, some of your have been able to raise our support and we appreciate it so much. As our family and ministry grows the dollar seems to be shrinking. 🙂
This past week we were able to purchase a travel trailer for our family. It will be so nice to lay our heads in the same bed every night. We are excited to have our little home on wheels. Please pray with us as we have an extremely busy schedule this summer and will be traveling many miles. This next week we will be traveling to TN to be in a BIO missions school. We are looking forward to learning more to help in our ministries in Peru. After that we will be in AL, GA, SC and New York before heading back to Ohio.
We are pleased to hear of our work in Peru and see that it is growing in our absence. We miss the people dearly and are excited to get back to be with them once more. Please continue to pray for Cajamarca as the strikes/protests continue and have recently become a problem again. Pray for Pastor Fredy and the people in our church.
Our family is doing well, we praise the Lord Kathy has had no further problems with her asthma. We finished up school for the year and are looking forward to camp and all the other fun summer activities. This will be our children’s first time at summer camp and we are praying they allow God to speak to their hearts while there.
John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. – I encourage you this summer not to be idle but to be ready to reap the harvest.
