September will bring us spring sometime. Weather is changing slowly. We thank the Lord for new life of spring, but mostly for the new life, fruit, for God. Two young men were finally baptized in Yarabamba, about an hour's drive from here where some of the believers from our main church in Arequipa have been going weekly. Please pray for Luis and Elmer, and that they can help win their families and friends.

A single believer from Polobaya, Ernesto, was baptized a couple months ago, and now Paul and Celida Ramos, also from Polobaya, were also baptized. A dear couple from here, Vicente and Emiliana, have been going Fridays and Saturdays to Polobaya and places around. This is about a two hour drive from here and these brethren rely on public transportation, so they appreciate your prayers for their outreach. God is bringing His own into His fold.

An older couple from here in Arequipa who have been attending with us on Sundays for some years was baptized a couple weeks ago. One of the elders from here has worked with them in weekly Bible studies for some time. Thanks so much for praying for growth in these new believers, all part of God's springtime in His garden.

Bob has had some fruitful trips to the mountains: to Espinar area and Sibayo. Now he is visiting the Quechua communities near Juliaca. The believers in the towns need encouraging and we are thankful Bob can still visit them. Another believer from here visits Pampacolca and other towns encouraging the believers. Pampacolca is lacking in youth, and the older believers are sometimes discouraged, so we are glad brother Justo can help them. Many of the mountain towns lose their youth as they come to the city here to study and work. Many do not follow the Lord as their elderly parents in the mountains do. However, some of the youth here do indeed carry on in the faith and we are so very thankful for a good group of Christian youth here in Arequipa.

Please continue to pray for our Ebenezer Christian school. We pray for fruit from the Lord among the students, teachers, and families. There are many distractions and temptations here in the city and many homes are falling apart. Please also pray for the building project. Permission from the Municipality needs to be granted, hopefully soon. We are trusting the Lord to supply the rest needed for this as well.
