Hi dear ones,

Well, another month is here, and yes, the days are definitely getting warmer and longer. Our mountains are losing their snowcaps, but they have kept some snow for a long time.

August went fast. Bob had some trips, and we think the Espinar one last weekend was profitable. Now he is in Caylloma, where there are also problems. We need prayer for the churches in these mountain areas. We need to see leaders raised up who will stay faithful to the truth in God's Word and not get led along by their emotions without Scripture basis. Many of them do not take the needed time to study God's Word, they just listen to alot of stuff so easily available on the internet or social medias. Thanks for praying for this, for the Lord's work in hearts to be firm and lastng.

Similar to that is asking prayer for the kids at school. They also need a solid base in Scripture as they grow up. I always praise the Lord for the opportunity to teach His word in the school, and there are some who do respond and we trust will remain faithful as they grow and go on. 5th grade this year is a real blessing for me - they are learning and love the course on the O.T. Please help me pray for real understanding and lasting learning for them in the truth. Thanks. Third grade is a challenge, but some especially are also profiting from the OT stories, and also English. I have reduced hours this year and it does give me more time for work here in the church and Sunday school, ladies meetings, etc.

We do ask prayer for a dear brother who first started the outreaches we have in Yarabamba and in Polobaya. He was with us for last Sunday evening church service, and just told Bob on the way out that he had a fever. Somehow Monday he got lots worse, Tuesday his son put him in hospital, he is now in intensive care, has been unconscious since Tuesday evening and is now swollen up and yellow. They say he had a massive infection, with 80% of his body not functioning. So far he has not responded, please do pray for David. He is in his late 50's. God knows his times. Thanks.

Thanks again so very much for continuing to pray for us and for the Lord's work here. We want to keep going for as long as the Lord permits, but also ask you to pray for faithful capable leaders to be raised up for the churches here in Arequipa. We are very thankful for our new co worker Jeff Anderson and his dear Peruvian wife, Angela. We pray God will also provide for them to be able to continue here in His work. Thanks so much for praying with us.
