Hi to you all!

Seems impossible that it is November already! Another Thanksgiving season is here. But we should always be thankful!

Last month, October, was really idolatrous here in Perú. They have several processions carrying the "purple Christ" (Lord of Miracles) all over. And now with All Saints day, the folks have the custom of putting out food by the graves of their deceased loved ones, thinking that the souls will come out and enjoy what they liked in this life. These customs go with drinking and partying, mixing in witch filled Halloween, etc. Perú has a large Christian population, but many are still mixed up with the world and their traditions. Thanks for praying for God's Light to shine here, through us.

Bob had some good travels last month. In the Juliaca area there were some baptisms in a Quechua community and some from Juliaca, a new little group forming there. We had some baptisms here too in Arequipa, a couple young men. And there were more in the Espinar area with our brother, Daniel Sayco. We are thankful for God working in lives.

The other elder in our main church here is with his brothers now in their home town across the mountains for a few days, They are sorting out some of their mother's lands and animals that need caring for after her sudden death in August. This is always a hard time for the family and they would appreciate your prayers, for unity and wisdom in these details. Their Dad is really too old and weak to care for these things himself. The sons took him up there with them, but he will be living here with the children so also needs to see how things will work out.

I forgot to mention last month that these dear brothers had a memorial service for their Mom here in late Sept. It was a blessing as many unsaved relatives and friends of the town were here and heard God's Word. God can bring good out of tragedy. Thanks for your prayers for this situation.

Early October we were blessed by attending a retreat in the north of Perú, with other missionaries. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and we are very grateful to have gone.

This month I (Noél) am scheduled to have cataract surgery. Guess it is a bit complicated as I let it go too long. It will be with a cut, stitches, lens replacement, anasthesia and all. So please pray all will turn out well. I need to get my monthly exams done, corrected and turned in soon, kind of a lot at once, thanks for your prayers. Please pray for the school too, that it will always be for the Lord's glory, and many will come to the Lord through this ministry.
