couple months of craziness

Dear Praying Friends,

Happy Son-day* to you! Thank you all for praying for us over these last months in spite of a serious lack of updates. We trust that the Holy Spirit has brought us to mind for prayer just at the right moments.** We could do nothing apart from the never-failing grace of God, in this wild and crazy life we are honored to share.

So, no one has heard from us over the last month+, so we thought we'd better give you all an update before you think the worst :)

June - In Tarapoto (since April), we were involved in all kinds of ministry & enjoying the heat. Micah made a river trip the last week.
July - The first week, we traveled back from Tarapoto (the jungle) to translate/teach/etc. at IBEM (Bible Institute) in Trujillo. Here, we had a very full month, with a week of conference for full-time workers; then two weeks of classes, ministry opportunities, shared meals and some just fun stuff with the students.
August - During this month so far, we finished up IBEM and packed up everything we own (perhaps slightly more complicated than it sounds :) and are distributing it between two places.

What does this mean? ...well, we are moving to Tarapoto!
*** There is a big pile of furniture/belongings in the front room of the lovely house we've rented for the last two years. It is waiting for the moving truck to take it to the jungle. Some of our things that won't stand the heat and humidity, we've moved to a small apartment that a lady from Centro Biblico is renting us for a very reasonable amount. We decided, that for now, for the sake of the family, we will maintain a small cheap apartment in Trujillo. That way, when we come back every couple of months for IBEM, we'll have a home to come to; thus easing some of the difficulty of re-adjustment between places.

Very soon, we'd like to send out some informational e-mails detailing some of the ministries we are privileged to be a part of. We regret not making time to keep you all informed over this insanely busy month. If we have a hard time keeping up with ourselves, we are sure that it must be that much harder for all of you far away to keep up as well! We'll try to do a little better as we have the time. These last months have been AMAZING.

GOD is good.

Thank you for participating in this exciting life of ministry, through your prayers and gifts. We are constantly amazed by the Lord's rich blessings.****

Looking to His return,

the Tuttle tribe - Micah & Amy
Javen, Cullen, Bria, Siah, Aleya Mya

PS. Amy is in Portland 8/22 - 9/2 in order to gather/take back clothes and homeschooling materials for the younger tribe members.

*One morning, Bria reminded me just how fitting the name of the first day of the week is, "Mom, it IS sunny today, but it is also Son-day, you know, like Son of God, Jesus' day!"

**On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. 2 Corinthians 1:10-11

***I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. Jeremiah 10:23

****Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
