The Lord is blessing us

 

Dear friends and family,

Thank you for your prayers! We are doing much better here in our jungle town of Tarapoto. No kidnappings, no robbery's, no falling into the septic tank, and no encounters with the police. Our neighbors have been able to keep their adopted son and are getting all the legal papers in order. We were able to move into our house last week and while the living conditions are still a bit rustic we are feeling quite comfortable. There is still A LOT to do but at the same time A LOT has been accomplished.

Now that we have a home, life is becoming a bit more stable and I can focus more on ministry while Amy and the kids are focusing more on home-school. Our small assembly is doing better and there is a general spirit joy and love for one another. We have gone from about 25 to 40 adults in the last two months or so. There are a few new believers too ! One of them (Robert) who said he heard me open air preaching two years ago has just now come to repentance and faith in Christ. He showed up at our prayer meeting a few weeks ago with a real hunger for God. Now Robert and his wife are growing in the Lord and never miss a meeting (they even come to the youth group.... and they're not exactly youth.... :)

A few nights ago I had the opportunity to preach at a wedding. The place was packed with almost all unbelievers that were planning a huge drunken fiesta that was to take place after the formalities. Almost no one knew that the bride and groom had asked me to preach and so the crowd was quite surprised as I was invited up as the “Gringo preacher”. As I shared the gospel you could tell that the crowd didn't know what to do with me. They actually seemed quite stunned and on the edge of their seats, wanting to leave (a few did) but also wanting to listen. It was sort of like John the Baptist and Herod. They wanted to listen because it was so interesting but at the same time they wanted my head. I was great! Please pray that God would work in the hearts of those that heard.

So glad to hear that life has settled down for you all. :-)

What a wonderful opportunity to preach for that wedding! LOL Praying that God would draw your hearers to Himself and that they would soon come back for more.

Yaaa GOD!!! Good to hear things are getting better. Here in the states we just had a couple that were heading for divorce start coming to our bible study on a regular basis. I invited them 3 or more years ago. GOD's time is amazing. Thank you for sharing the good and the bad. We will always be praying for you.
