Things are going well
Aaron tells me that things are going well! Above, you can see a few pics from two different villages. They were able to visit La Posa yesterday which is where we were stationed our first year. It was a great time, and many of the people remembered Aaron, Rick, & Michael from four years ago. Robby, if you are reading this...Jesus was asking about you!
Last night, they were back in Centenario, where they were able to visit Carmen. This is the woman that professed faith in Christ back in November. They delivered a new large print Bible for her. Her eyesight is horrible, so hopefully this extra large print will be easier for her to read. I was able to talk to her on the phone....well, attempt to anyway....and she sounded so happy!
Today, they drove into the city to purchase the air conditioner. The town had raised part of the money, and the rest was provided by our team. They were able to purchase one unit that would supply air to two rooms. Not sure how that works, but I'm sure Aaron will expound when he comes home.
Tonight, there was a circus in town. However, rather than going, the young men in the town asked if they could just "hang" & talk. What a great opportunity! Praise the Lord!
As you pray, please remember a few specific names. Rudy, Ivar, & Daniel. There are many more, but those are the names for today. Salvation...that's what we're praying for!
Tomorrow evening, the guys will be packing up camp and heading back across the border into Texas. Pray for open hearts, that even in their last moments there, the Lord would make himself known! Also, for safe travel. And for ease at the border. Normally there are no problems, but it is always a possibility.
The Lord is so good!
