Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

We are glad to be back ‘home’ in Peru, and getting back into the grove of things.  A family camp had already been planned when we returned from the USA, but because of many reasons, we replaced it with an impromptu VBS that turned out very well!  We had many children come with over 50 different kids throughout the 3 days.  There were many great contacts made.  Many of them returned Sunday.  We have struggled in the area where our church is currently located, it seems as though kids aren’t allowed to go to church.  We have been in this location for 4 years, and we always had more kids in the other area with a much smaller location.  We don’t understand the difference, however we are praying that God will open their hearts and homes with the seeds that have been sown.  Please continue to pray for our church and area.

Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
This is our first letter since being back in Peru so we would like to update you on what is going on here. We arrived December 4th just in time for all the holiday activities. When we arrived we only arrived with 2 of our 22 pieces of luggage. After a week of being on the phone, and eventually having to travel back to Lima, we were able to get all of our luggage. We praise the Lord as many of you prayed for us during this time. Not one thing was missing from our luggage. It took us about a month to fully get settled again. Our house sat basically empty for a year so it needed some major cleaning. Our car also needed some work as well. The month of December was quite busy for us.

Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

 

My how this year how flown by. It is hard to believe a year ago at this time we didn’t even realize we would be in the States and now we are getting ready to fly back. We are busy shopping for last minute things and packing up. By the time you receive this I am sure we will already be back home in Peru. We recently celebrated 10 yrs of being in Peru and we are looking forward to many more. Continue reading December 2012

Dear Praying Friends,

It is always good to get good news!  Pastor Fredy in Peru wrote to give us some good news about some things there in Peru.  A few years ago Pastor Fredy and I were asked to visit a person in jail.  We went that week, and found the young man completely broken, and torn up.  Continue reading August 2012

Dear Pastors and Praying friends, 

     As always we appreciate your prayers for us as we travel the USA on furlough. We have traveled a lot this past month, from Michigan to Alabama, to South Carolina, and up to New York before landing back at ‘home’ in Ohio, it was a circuit of well over 3,000 miles. Praise the Lord we had good meetings, and appreciated seeing everyone we were able to see. Space would not allow me to write everyone, and everywhere we visited.
