Hi y'all!

Amazing that March came so fast! Well, one week before our school year starts (Thursday, March 5) the final permission for our building project was granted! As I write this the demolition is going on, and it's almost gone! But we fear they will have to finish demolishing tomorrow, which will leave precious little time to clean up and find space for the 2 classrooms that were in that building.

Teachers are working now and we have had a week of orientation with them. Bob gave devotionals for them last week and this week they will have to get their classrooms ready, get their schedules, etc. We thank the Lord for the Christian teachers we have (most all of the primary school and all kindergarten has precious believers for teachers) and pray for the new ones in secondary school, (high school) - that they truly will commit to Christ. Please help us pray to that end and please help us pray for the students and their homes.

And yes, please help us pray for the building that needs to be replaced, the patio that needs to be extended, etc. Marino and Lupe will have to block off the middle part so construction can be worked on there, making it necessary for a while to have the two entrances, one for primary school and the other for secondary. Each will have their smaller patio space till we can get the h.s. patio extended to join with the very small primary one. We can only go so far as funds are limited, but we trust the Lord will supply the rest needed in His time. Seems like the timing didn't work out, but we rejoice that finally we can start anyway. True, God has His time, and we thank Him for this big answer to prayer, even if it seems late to us. Thanks so much for praying with us. Thanks so much for all your help in sharing with us for His work.

God has blessed us with a few baptisms this past month, at least one here in our main church and some others out in the mountain areas. Bob has a trip planned to a new area above Espinar for mid March, with our worker in that area, Daniel Sayco. Bob is very busy here preparing materials and teaching, both live and on radio, etc. We thank the Lord for these opportunities and His continued strength given for all this. Bob turned 70 in Feb., finally made it to my decade (I'm 71). We both are truly thankful for health and strength to keep going - for Him!

Our Joe has to return to the U.S. so will have to leave here March 10 in the evening. We are still enjoying his stay and all the pictures he has taken of God's work here in the Arequipa region. We will miss him!

Again, thanks so very much for praying for us and sharing with us. Please help us pray for one more sponsor for a little girl in primary school. Thanks to all of you who are helping this way, we pray God's richest blessings on all of you!
