Hi to you dear ones!

Can't believe it is March already! February went fast and was indeed a busy month. We have bad news and good news! Sad news first: Because of our limited living situation, our son Joe has decided not to come as planned. So please help us pray that in a very few months everyone can be in their places and we will have a place where our family and others can feel free to come visit us! God is working and we think it will work out well in the end. Please do just keep praying! Thanks!

Happy news: our 10th grandchild, a precious little GRANDdaughter, was born February 4! She is Paul and Kim's 6th child, they named her Myra Noel. So I have like a "tocaya" (which means someone else with my name) now in the family. She would have been our 11th grandchild, but our Terri's dear little David did not make it past one month, he is in the arms of Jesus in heaven, and I sure want to see him there too! We pray for all our grandchildren, that each one will come to know the Lord and serve Him. Then we will have a great reunion some day! I miss them all but God has special plans for each one, and for us here too.

Talking about families, here we are seeing opposition, Satan is attacking our families. Some who have not been married very long are having real problems. God is working and we have had several sessions in counselling different ones, where thankfully God is restoring them. Still, it is evident that this is a real battle. As the world becomes more corrupt, older families fall apart, kids grow up just thinking of themselves, they don't make for good homes either. We pray God will truly transform His own and help in their home lives. Thanks for praying for our homes and families.

Along with that goes that school starts tomorrow, March 3! We are trying to get ready for it, but there is still a lot to do! We thank the Lord, He is answering and we have a good core of Christian teachers! More students are registering as well, so please help us pray for fruit for Christ in these lives. I will have Bible (Christian formation) in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, and English in 3rd and 4th grades. This is 3 hours less than last year, but still 14 class hours so I will be busy. Please pray God will bring these little ones to Himself. We thank the Lord our little Bryan who we mentioned in the last letter has been provided for. Some other needy ones are also being helped. Thanks to God and thanks to all who are sharing and helping in this way. Please also pray for the school's material needs. Thanks!

Sadly, the couple we mentioned in the last letter in Polobaya, Paul Ramos and his wife, are putting off being baptized as they have promised their unconverted family members the use of their house for the yearly idolatrous fiesta in June or July. It is so very hard to "offend" family members or break with tradition and be cut off from society. They need prayer, they still do receive the Word of God that our brethren take them weekly, and others meet with them too. Still, God has to work His transformation in their hearts. Thanks for praying for this outreach.

Bob has had some profitable trips to the mountains and is now in the province of Espinar, in one of the Quechua communities, for some meetings this weekend. Our mountain brethren need encouragement. Last trip was a three day break for both of us at the beach, that was really refreshing!
