Hi you all!

Already November, and in spite of difficulties we have much to give thanks for!

Last month we helped in another funeral, this time it was of a young man who really wasn't in our church here though he had come some before and did appreciate Bob's studies. Luis Angel was a psychology major in the university and really desired to help others know the Lord through his sharing. He had worked some in our Ebenezer school and had been in Lima for several months for special courses. He was diagnosed with leukemia and was back in Lima for treatment. He had recovered a good bit then suddenly had a relapse and God took him home. His folks brought the body here for the funeral. Bob spoke there and we sang, several of the family members are not believers so we think it was a testimony to them. The parents live in Puno and are now back there.

As for the Llerena family, they still need prayer, but we are thankful that the Dad, Justo Pastor, is recovering. He is still in the hospital, had a liver infection (pus in the liver which is still being drained) and was operated on last week. At first the family was told he had liver cancer, which was a terrible blow to hear right after their son committed suicide. At least now the drs. have said it is NOT cancer. A cyst was removed from Justo's liver and he has a drain in to remove the pus and clean it out. He can finally eat a little without vomiting, and though he still has pain, he is better. Thanks for praying for the whole family, still!

Bob has had some good trips with some baptisms in the Majes valley. Last Sunday we baptized a young guy (Lucho) here who has been coming to the adolescent meetings on Sat. aft. here in the main Arequipa church. I have been teaching the lessons for this, and ask for prayer. It is time consuming but we really want these kids to know Christ. Now two more girls who come to this want to be baptized, so please help us pray for them. Our older youth group is involved in a Sunday afternoon outreach to a town outside of Arequipa, Yarabamba, which has no Christian church. A couple of the older believers also go and they give out tracts and witness and have found some truly interested. Some of our girls work with the children who come out to the plaza, and others split up to visit homes. Several of the youth group want to visit a mountain town, Orcopampa, mid November, to help in the small church there and reach out too. Thanks for praying for our youth. We praise the Lord for working in and through them.

Please keep praying for wisdom in appointing elders in the main Arequipa church. Bob continues in preparation of a few, and we need God's timing and guiding to see this need fulfilled.

Here we are in prayer for the upcoming elections in the U.S. We know the Lord is ultimately in control, whatever happens. And we are truly thankful for the freedom we have here to proclaim His Word. We hope each of you will have a very Blessed Thanksgiving, not just one day, but every day! We thank you truly for all your praying and sharing with us!
