November Blessings & Thanks

We were blessed in lots of ways in November!

November 2nd was Joseph’s birthday: 9 years old, what a blessing!

On November 5th, we rejoiced in two more being baptized!

Including our first deaf believer´s baptism here!

On November 6th I headed to Cusco to teach two, two-week block classes at the Baptist Bible college. What a privilege to have a part in training the next generation of servant-leaders!

While in Cusco, we got to catch up with lots of friends, including some of the Whatley family (We might have found some American style food too)!

The family also got to go horse-back riding in a mighty scenic area!

Shortly after returning to the jungle, my sister Bethany arrived for her first visit to this part of Peru!

We got to celebrate her birthday, and we received lots of gifts too! Thanks sister!

We enjoyed some fun times together!

And definitely made some memories!

On Thanksgiving day we awoke to find this scene in our yard and street (yard is on the right, street is to the left, in case you can’t tell).

It was actually the worst flooding we have experienced here, and the water came right in our first floor. That is a memory we hope not to repeat. But we are thankful that it receded quickly!

And we still got to celebrate a US style thanksgiving with lots of friends!

Although the rainy season is upon us, we are thankful for the work now happening!

Better late than never!

 

Thank you for taking a look at our November blessings, and giving thanks for what God has been doing!
