Hi y'all!

August is here already! We did have a cold, dry spell in July, with my fingers splitting, etc. It got warmer, all got healed and now it is getting colder again. We are still in winter, but it is passing!

This month we have at least three weddings. We pray for these homes forming, we have also had believers here with family problems, they surely need prayer too. The enemy just does not like to see Christians living in God's will. Thanks for praying!

Last month we had some baptisms too, one very elderly lady who had trusted the Lord developed pneumonia a couple weeks after her baptism. She passed away a few days ago, but was very thankful to have obeyed the Lord in identifying with Him. Her husband and granddaughter were baptized with her. Please pray for these new ones to remain faithful to the Lord.

The believers from here who are going every weekend to Yarabamba are seeing growth in the new believers there, and the brother Vicente, who with his family goes to Polobaya and Agua Buena each weekend also are glad for growth in the new believers there, though it is often a struggle as unbelieving neighbors there make it hard for the new believers who want to leave off the idolatrous customs and feasts they have in these towns. They are only a couple hours from Arequipa but still very Roman C. traditional, including idolatry and forced keeping of traditions.

Bob has had some fruitful trips, and is now with our guest Jeff in Puno, Juliaca, and the Quechua communities near there, and will be going, Lord willing, next week to Culypampa, about the highest place where we have believers, for some meetings there to encourage the dear brethren up there in that cold place. As Jeff is from a relatively high altitude in Wyoming, we don't expect he will have trouble with the altitude - that is a blessing!

Today they are roofing the second floor of the construction project at school. Wow, they have been working fast! God has blessed us with all the permissions needed, and seems to be showing us again that His timing is best. Recently the dollar exchange has gone up some here in Perú, really helping us stretch the funds donated earlier for this. If we had had the permits earlier we would have used up all the funds by now and not been able to continue. We may not yet be able to finish, but we will get more done, Lord willing, than if we had started earlier. Thank you, Lord, and thank all of you who have helped with this. We pray the school will always be a place where God's Word is taught, respected, and believed. So important in these days of rebellion and indifference to God.

Thanks so much for your prayer and sharing with us. We trust you will see God working in your life too, as you serve Him.
