Dear friends and family,

Can't believe this year has gone so very fast!! Soon it will be 2018! We certainly hope you have had a good 2017 and will have a most blessed 2018. Thank you so much for your faithful praying for us and for sharing with us as the Lord has led you.

These months we have been really busy, but the Lord has blessed in spite of some problems. Now Bob is having leaders from the different churches in and around Arequpa here for 2 days of meetings. Please help us pray these meetings will bring fruit in these men's lives, strength and encouragement for their churches - we are really thankful for the many souls and lives God has brought to Himself all around this area in the south of Perú. We pray they indeed will be fruit that lasts for His Kingdom.

Last month the dear believers from our main church here and others from different places around the city of Arequipa had a special dinner for us remembering our almost 51 years here in Perú. They are really good to us, but we desire that all the glory go to the Lord. Our goal is that all whom God has given us accompany us in His glory for eternity. Thanks for praying with us for this.

Next door, the Peruvian school year is ending. Wow, the students are filled with excitement! We received a request from the dear mission that helped us so much with the building, wondering if the school was still active. "Active" is an understatement for the last 2 weeks of school here - are they ever "active"!! Yesterday they had their last "achievement day" for the year, they had lots of really interesting projects and presentations - and we are so thankful for the ongoing opportunity to teach God's Word here. We are in final exams now and that is busy too. Please help us pray for more sponsors for poorer children to be able to be in Christian school here next year. Fees must go up because the govt. law for payment of teachers is going up. We thank the Lord for our dedicated Christian teachers, we pray for more for next year, and we want to pay them what is correct. The kids are precious and we want to keep them and give them the best quality education, always with the Lord first.

Thanks so much for standing so faithfully with us. Again, we wish you a very joyous Christmas season, and a most blessed 2018. Our webpage, done by our son Joe, is: and our support address is:
