convention, baptism and boxes

Last week I (Micah) spent five days in the village of Huimbayoc [wim-bye-YOKE] where we had the bi-anual convention. About 300 believers came from the surrounding villages to worship the Lord and study His word together. This is always an exciting, yet exausting time for me as I try to maximize my time with the brothers. I taught from the scriptures for 5 hours each day, had many personal meetings with leaders of the different assemblies, marked out time for one-on-one evangelism, preached open air a few times and corrected about 75 Emmaus Bible courses that the brothers handed in.

The assembly here in Tarapoto is doing well and many were encouraged as we just recently baptized eight new believers. We have had many ups and downs in this new work over the last two years but recently we've been encouraged that some of the believers are showing signs of maturing, including taking more responsibility. The building project is progressing little by little and in the last few weeks we have advanced a lot with the wiring, finish work and painting. We thank the Lord for this provision.

Our entire family is doing wonderfully well and we've all enjoyed the special events surrounding Christmas. We want to send a special thank you to all of you that sent us Christmas presents or money this year!

Lord willing, the following are our plans for the next few months.  Many of you know, that the owners of the house we've rented for the past two years, have need of their house.  So, we are once again in the midst of packing up and preparing our things for storage.  We plan to go to Trujillo where I will be teaching some classes in IBEM, and then in Februrary the family will stay in Trujillo while I travel back to this area to help at “Capacitacion Biblica” in Yurimaguas.  Somewhere around mid-March we plan to travel to the States and hope to be able to visit many of YOU over the summer!!   We will be posting a schedule of where we'll be and when in the coming months.  Or, you can get in touch with us by sending us an e-mail - thetuttletribe (at) gmail (dot) com

Enjoy some picture of the recent baptism...
