Tuttle Travels

Dear friends and family,

The last few months have been a whirlwind of traveling, preaching, seeing old friends and having lots fun.  We have been in seventeen states in the last two months and it has been a great time of encouragement to see what the Lord is doing in the USA as we share what the Lord is doing in Peru.  

Upon arrival in Portland Oregon we had a wonderful time at the beach with our families and after that we crammed into Amy’s parents minivan and hit the road.  We have driven over 6,000 miles and the car only broke down once (AAA tow truck + a good mechanic = on the road again in 2 hours).  It was almost a pleasurable experience compared to breaking down in Peru (no AAA tow truck + no good mechanic = 2 days stranded).

We have watched the seasons change before our very eyes as it has gone from snow in Spokane to 100 F in San Antonio.  We saw the horrible flooding in Memphis (water up to the windows on houses along the highway).  We also passed through a small tornado-struck town in Arkansas (not as big as Joplin, but quite destroyed).  We thank God that through our travels he has kept us from harm.    

The kids have had a lot of fun making new friends and seeing old ones, playing with cool toys and eating yummy “American food”.  Amy has tried to make our travels an educational experience especially at Mount Rushmore, the Alamo, Petrified forest and the Grand canyon.  The only difficult thing has been too much time in the car.    

On the ministry side of things I (Micah) have had the opportunity to speak at Emmaus Bible college, Moody Bible Institute, several churches and I even did a radio interview in Spanish to the greater Houston area.  We have eaten meals with so many good friends and been on the receiving end of so much hospitality.  We want to thank those of you who have shown us such love and support.  Many people have asked if we are getting exhausted from the preaching and the traveling; and we answer that honestly it has been rejuvenating to visit and spend time in mutual spiritual encouragement with so many brothers and sisters in Christ.

Now we look forward to mutual encouragement in the Lord with the saints in the Northwest for a few months before going back to Peru on September 12th.  Thank you for your prayers and financial support.
