It has been a busy few weeks for us here in Bolivia! We have had visitors from the States come to stay with us and we were able to complete several projects while they were here. They were able to help raise money to buy supplies for a new church that has been started here in La Paz by a national named Rodrigo. This young man is out of another church here in La Paz. It's good to see young men being raised up and trained to go out and lead others to Christ. It was a great blessing being able to help and to provide the needed bibles, crayons, chairs, tables and
a pulpit for the new church that Rodrigo has started. I had had a pulpit made in preparation of our work but since they wanted to buy one and he needed one now, we gave him mine and I will have another one built soon. Please be in prayer for this new work and that it will be able to minister to and see many souls come to Christ.
I was also able to attend and preach the second night of this years pastors conference in Santa Cruz. God really blessed and moved among the men of God there. While we were there we were able to purchase more bibles and study material for another national pastor named Santiago. His work is in Coroico; down past the Death Road. These were a blessing to him and greatly needed for his young people. Now he will be better equipped to teach and train the young people in his church. Sometimes in missions, it is not as much about doing as it is about equipping others to do. With the help of others we have been able to equip these men to reach people that we may never have the opportunity to reach.
While they were here, one of our guests taught me how to make balloon animals. He even left me with an air pump and balloons. I have already been able to use this new skill to show the love of Christ to several groups of children. It's just one more tool we can use to reach souls for the Lord Jesus. I am thankful for children's ministries, that is how the Lord reached me!!!
Jessica's pregnancy is doing well and she is feeling much better. Thank you for your prayers. We found out we are expecting a boy! Baby Daniel is growing and doing well and so far the pregnancy is going well. We ask that you continue to pray for both of them, that everything will stay normal especially with the complications the altitude can present here.
Ellie is also doing well and growing way too fast. She doesn't understand about her new baby brother yet but we know she will enjoy having someone to play with.
Thank you again for all of your prayers and support. We pray that God will bless you for your faithfulness to serve and give to Him.
