Hi to all of you dear ones,

Hard to believe December is here already, and the last embers of 2018 are going out! Another year is almost gone. It has been a good one and we have grown and learned. We look forward to all the Lord has for us and His work here in the next year. We trust to keep going for God, and we thank you for all your help, praying for us, sharing as the Lord leads. We have purchased tickets to the U.S. for January 15, returning here, Lord willing, February 28. We just may drive out west, as it has been 6 years since we have seen Bob's family and others out there who have shared with us and prayed for us for years. Hopefully we can visit some of you, we are not sure yet how it all will work out! Thanks for praying for us in this.

Bob had another profitable trip to the Majes valley and this weekend he plans to go to Espinar for a couple days. This coming Sunday is voting day for regional governors, as well as what they call a "referendum" to decide on several political issues and state of congress, etc. There has been really unbelievable corruption discovered in this country on all levels. People don't trust anyone and don't know who or what to vote for. There are protest marches and strikes mixed in with idolatrous processions and practices. We have freedom to teach and preach God's Word and we sincerely pray this will continue in spite of all this mess going on around us. There is definite lack of order and discipline, beginning with the home and stretching into all areas. Thanks so much for praying for us, that we would really be lights for the Lord.

School year ends in a couple weeks! Final exams and Christmas program practices are starting. I am preparing the 4 year olds for a little skit and the 5th graders for another one. We pray for all the programs and events these days to glorify the Lord! The students are all excited, noisy, crazy, just kids having a good time - we really thank the Lord for the school and all the opportunities here. Please pray for Christian teachers for next year, we know some are leaving us, and we need to see more for 2019 to come. I am blessed to be able to continue teaching these precious lives. Thanks so much for praying for each of them, for me and the teachers, and for our homes and families.

The youth from our main Arequipa church helped in a distribution of loaded Christmas bags in the state boys home Saturday, and we and another family did this in the Christian children's home we help. Both places we were able to share God's message: the Saviour has come and we need Him! The youth did a skit on the Prodigal son, then divided the boys into groups to personally converse and share the need to trust Christ as Saviour and Lord. We pray God will work in hearts there.

Also, some of the youth and others are doing outreaches to the towns near Arequipa, to a sector of Yarabamba called Belaunde, and to the town Polobaya and its anex, Agua Buena. Our newer missionaries, Jeff and Angela Anderson, are evangelizing in a sector of the Colca canyon as well as in another section of the town of Congata called Nueva Leticia. They are really active in God's work and we are thankful for them. So pray for them too and for the Lord to supply all their needs as well as bless and bring new believers in these areas and in others.
