Hi dear friends,

December is advancing too fast!! This is such a busy time of year! So much to do for the end of school: finals, programs, practices, etc. Then other things too, seems it all piles up! We are so very glad for the freedom to proclaim our Lord's coming to save us. We want to know Him better and let Him shine through us so others will see and know Him too.

After Bob's last trip to the Majes Valley he went to have another problem fixed on the van. He was told by the mechanic that the motor is slowly giving out and really he should sell it before we need an expensive overhaul or something. Bob sure has liked his van for all these years, but all good things come to an end, they say! Well, we are praying about this, thanks for praying about it too!

There is growth in the church here and in some of the areas where our workers are, and we are thankful for this. Bob disciples many and is seeing growth in their lives. Alvaro's wife, Rocssana, has not been well. She may need hospitalization and surgery for a colon problem. Please help us pray for her. They are valuable workers in Chuquibamba, working with the radio, churches, ladies, children, etc.

The building for the school is going up! But the funds for this project are going down! We are so very thankful we have seen this started, and are praying hard that we will be able to continue! We will have to stop though, if we don't receive the needed funds. This reality makes us sad, but we do really thank the Lord for what we have and pray for His provision in His way and time. Thanks so much for praying with us. Thanks so very much for helping with this! I am really busy these days preparing programs for the end of year, Christmas, etc. Plus I have to prepare final exams for all my English and Christian Formation courses. Then to correct them and register grades, etc. It is a lot of work. The program part is fun and really an opportunity to glorify the Lord with the kids learning and saying Scripture in English and Spanish and singing for the Lord in both languages. Please help me pray that God will be glorified in all.

On the family side, our son Joseph is coming, D.V., to be with us from Dec. 23 through the end of Feb.! So we are looking forward to him coming soon! He wants to take lots of pictures of the work here and the school and all. But the kids won't be in school then. The final closing program is Dec. 23 and the exams end the 18th. Anyway, we hope to travel some with Joe while he is here.

Also on the "family" side, our lovely little cocker spaniel had 6 lovely and now very lively puppies on Oct. 11. I thought it would be easier to sell them for Christmas presents. But sales are slow. 5 are females. I sold the only male the first day I put the ad in the paper. We get lots of calls for puppies, but most people want males. Oh well. The puppies are sure cuties and cuddly. But they all EAT! And do take time and work feeding and cleaning up. So we kind of have a big family now!

A big thanks to all you dear ones who stand with us in prayer and sharing! We wish for you a wonderful Christmas remembering God's goodness in sending us the Saviour! He is the One we want to share with all! And you are helping us do that here. Thanks!

Many blessings for Christmas and for all of 2010,
Love, Noél for us
