Hi to you dear ones!

Yes, already November, and marching along quickly! Always we remember to be thankful, but this month especially as Thanksgiving day draws near! The English lesson for my 4th graders in school is on Thanksgiving. Not enough of them learned how to spell: "thankful"! Well, the idea is that they learn to thank God for His blessings. Please do help us pray for the school, that we can and will be faithful to teach each student God's way of salvation for them. It is more difficult as the world continues on a downward trend, less morals, less godly home life, so few who really care to know God personally. We are thankful for the opportunity we have! We must make the most of it while we have it.

Please pray for the permission to be granted for the construction that must go on starting late December. The plans have been presented to the Municipality and supposedly will be approved soon. Thanks for helping us pray for the rest of the funds needed. We have 5 weeks left of classes this year. Thanks for praying for the school, mostly that it will continue to be a true testimony for the Lord.

This last month of Oct. brought some bad dust storms at the first, trouble with our sewage in front of the church building, more problems with stinky water, etc. and NO rain. Please help us pray for rain! We really need it.

Also this past month brought some of our older believers passing into Glory. Three were from other churches we fellowship with, and another older lady whose daughter attends with us. Another older sister, Francisca, has terminal cancer and went back to her town above Cotahuasi. Another dear sister from one of our churches has terminal cancer and is in hospital. Seems kind of morbid, these 4 deaths recently, but precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. These dear ones were ready to go be with Him. Please help us pray for the ones who have to suffer here yet. Thanks.

Some more bad news: crime is really rampant more here. One dear brother in our main church had all his work material (hardware he sells) stolen out of the back of his old car. It was all his capital and he has debts. Please pray for the Lord's provision for this dear family.

Also this past month we had a couple weddings! So that is a bright spot, we pray for these families forming, to glorify God.

Bob had a fruitful trip to Culypampa, way high place, but there were a lot of believers from different ranches and places and they were encouraged in the Lord. There was one baptized too. We thank the Lord for His workers in different places - Daniel especially is reaching out to many areas around Espinar. Some of the believers from here continue to reach out to the towns of Polobaya, Agua Bueno and Yarabamba. Thanks for praying for all these. Surely we are glad for the freedom we have to spread God's Word here.

Good news: after a month of strike, our post office is again working. It will take a while for the backlog of mail to be put out in the boxes but should get caught up soon.

Truly we have many reasons to be thankful. You are some of these reasons. Thank you so much for faithfully standing with us, praying and sharing as you are led by our Lord. We pray for you too, and for your ministry and testimony for Him. May He bless you richly.
