Hi, y'all!

Already August is here! And already moving quickly! Here the weather is nicer, not so cold and days are getting longer. So till the winds come it is nice. High winds in August bring lots of dust, not fun.

Bob had a good trip to Espinar earlier in the month. He also has gone to the Majes Valley and seen some encouragement there. Our big event July 26-29 was the visit of a dear missionary friend from Bolivia, David Sommer. July 28 is Peru's Independence day so schools are on vacation and the 28th and 29th are holidays.

David blessed us in youth meeting Sat. night and church Sunday a.m. with good messages and films on God's miraculous intervention in Israel throughout history. Then the 28th and 29th several believers from different churches in and around Arequipa joined together for his teaching on the book of Acts. We had like 300 so had to use the school's patio. We wouldn't fit in our church meeting room. Sessions were from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with dinner served for all. Our dear sisters really pitched in and cooked wonders for all. Everyone helped and we were blessed to work and learn together for the glory of our Lord. Some not yet believers also came and God's message of salvation was very clearly presented.

Some of our youth are going up to a youth gathering the 15th of this month to the Espinar area. The national worker we support up there, Daniel, is seeing God work in many communities or ranches up in this area. There are new believers, baptisms, and a real hunger for the truth. Thanks so very much for praying! These new believers need teaching. Right now Perú has many voices in "religion" and alot of these give false teaching. This causes confusion for new believers, here in the city as well as out in the rural areas. Please continue to pray for God's work here.

Please continue to pray for the school year. Last half starts Monday Aug. 4. We do pray for fruit in the lives of these dear students, all 300 of them! Please pray for the project that needs to be done over our vacation starting right before Christmas. Our school year here is March to December. The plans and proposals are presented to the National Cultural Institute. We have been recently warned by the Regional Direction of Education that the patio has to be enlarged. The Civil Defense told us this last year as well. Please help us pray for the rest of the funds needed for this, God has supplied most of the need, but we still lack some. Thanks!
