Once again, I’d like to take time to give glory to God for what He is doing, and update you on our activities here. Life has been busy, as usual, but thankfully not so much as the month of July.
I have once again taken over the teen ministry. One of our interns was charged with that group, but he left suddenly last month. I rejoice in the opportunity to have an impact on these young folks!
At the beginning of the month we were able to travel to a mountain town, which required a short plane ride and 8 hours of nausea inducing curves. However, it was a great blessing to minister to the folks there! We got to teach, counsel, and fellowship!
They also celebrated Loren’s birthday!
I had the privilege of baptizing!
We look forward to going back soon.
On the home-front: Loren is taking a specialized course to help teach those with dyslexia. She often does her work while I am teaching an online Bible study to our friends in the mountains.
Joseph is really enjoying his new pair of goats!
Abigail and Isaiah joined a mixed soccer team together.
Joseph has started Tae-Kwon-Do, which I also did at about the same age.
A family who has been visiting the church lost their baby girl at 17 days of age. I rejoice in the opportunity to give the gospel, despite the difficult time.
Our children are on a modified US school year, so they also began school this month.
As part of the boys’ curriculum, we are doing shop class this year. They are learning a lot, and thrilled to be working on this 3hp Briggs motor which appears to be from the 60’s!
We are grateful to God for the privilege of serving him together in Peru! Thank you for your prayers and support.
