Thank you for your prayers

After a great week of ministry and fellowship in Trujillo we are now back home in our jungle town of Tarapoto.  We thank God for a safe trip and good health.  The Lord has really blessed us as a family.  Thank you for your prayers!


 Amy is doing an amazing job homeschooling our kids and trying to keep our crazy life at a manageable pace.  Javen (14 years old) is adjusting to life with braces on his teeth.  Cullen (13 years old) is getting good at playing the guitar.  Bria (9 years old) likes to read.  Josiah (8 years old) is learning to play basketball and Mya (5 years old) is learning to ride a bike.  


Last week I did a quick two day river trip.  The sunrise was spectacular on this particular morning as we headed down the rio Huallaga.  Even more spectacular was the opportunity to preach the gospel on the radio, in the boat and in a few villages along the way.   


After preaching in one of the villages a man named "Israel" came to me asking for prayer and protection from the demons that had been tormenting him (he's the one on my right in the picture).  When we had read from the scriptures and prayed together he decided it would be impossible to leave my presence for fear that the demons would kill him.  So the rest of the day he followed me around, half the time talking to me and half of the time talking to the invisible beings that surrounded him.  One moment he would be fine and the next he would run across the yard and hide wherever he could find shelter.  It was pitiful to see this man in such bondage to fear and the evil one.  After a long night with Israel he seemed to be much better in the morning and I was able to leave him with the brothers pictured above.              


It's good fishing on the Huallaga right now!  The "motas" are making a run upriver.  Sadly, I didn't have time to throw in a hook and line..... but I did have time to fish for men (the most exciting of all fishing).  I was able to share the gospel with the man pictured above and several others in the boat for the space of about 2 hours.  Please pray that evangelism would continue in these forgotten villages and that the brethren would be encouraged.

I can't believe Bria is 5 already!

Praise God for His protection and the opportunity to witness to so many.

I keep thinking about Israel... the reality of demons and darkness... spiritual warfare all around us... Oh how the devil can be so subtle here in the US making us so very complacent to the real dangers around us. Praying for Israel and that he would come to know Jesus Christ personally and be free indeed!
