Hi to you all!

October is going fast. I have been really busy and we need your prayers! Thank you so very much for praying for us and for helping us here. School anniversary program is tomorrow. We pray for God to be glorified in all the presentations. Lord willing, I am doing songs with 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades and a skit with the 5th graders.

The students are really getting all excited as we will have a vacation of one week and they are finished with their tests and full of "spring fever" etc. The Lord is blessing and we continue really thankful for the opportunity to share Christ with the students, parents, and teachers. One of the teachers came to talk to Bob yesterday. He is ministering in an abandoned children's home and wants to influence the kids for God. Thanks for praying for the ministries of the school.

Late September one of our deacon's family had a tragedy in his family. Their oldest son killed himself by hanging after being left by his live in girlfriend, whom he hoped to marry and with whom had a little daughter of over a year. Toño was desperate and just couldn't deal with the depression. He had come to church that morning and had confessed that he had wandered from the Lord. His folks and adopted brother, (our Pepe) had talked to him and counseled him, but early Monday morning Pepe found him dead, hung in his room.

We had the funeral and burial, but it still is a real hardship for especially the parents. Toño was 35. The Dad, our deacon Justo Pastor, has been in radiation therapy for cancer for most of this year and after the suicide of his son has had continued high fevers and bad colic. Our govt. paid doctors are on strike and Pastor has had a hard time getting the needed medical attention, but supposedly they are going to remove his gall bladder to see if that helps. However, his sickness plus the death of their son is especially hard on Narcisa, his wife, now.

Please pray especially for the parents: JUSTO PASTOR and NARCISA LLERENA. Their other children are grown, two married and the other older son came from Chile for at least a week to try to help. Pepe is taking it all about the best of the family, but is obviously affected too. Thanks for your prayers.

Bob had some profitable trips, and this weekend is going to Camaná for the baptism of two of the grown children of the brother who leads the meetings there. For the next weekend he may go to Aplao for the baptism of another new believer and wife from the Majes Valley. Thanks so much for praying, the car is working wonderfully. We are very thankful for this vehicle.

Our older youth group has been doing a course on preparation for marriage. Please pray for solid marriages and homes to be formed among our believers in these very shaky days. Some of these youth are also studying and preparing for how they can be involved in missions. We praise the Lord for some real dedicated youth here. Some of them are also going out Sunday afternoons to witness and meet with interested people in a town about an hour's drive from here that has no church.

Again, thanks so very much for praying for us and for helping us in God's work here. Many blessings, Noél for us
