Hi to you all,

Yes, 2018 is gone and it is now January, and it is going too! December went fast with all the activities, school, childrens home, Bible studies, etc. Opportunities to share Christ and the reason He came.

Bob had some trips in December. One was to Espinar, where Daniel is still making problems, dividing the church up there and basically saying Bob is not welcome there. However there are several who truly want to go God's way and want Bob to continue to help them. So please pray for wisdom and love in these difficult situations.

Another church we have been involved in some in the past also is going through some difficult times with changes and regulations not entirely according to Scripture. For sure God's church is going through difficult times, sometimes it is discouraging, but we need to look up, our redemption draws near. We are glad for the freedom to still teach God's Word. We pray for this to continue, even though there are many diversities among believers.

Bob also attended a meeting for leaders from several churches, mountain and valley groups and from here in Arequipa too. We pray for these leaders, that they would lead their people in God's straight paths.

The closing program at school was good. We feel the Lord was honored, and we are thankful for a good spirit all year among teachers and families. Thanks for praying for the school. Please help us pray for dedicated Christian teachers for next year too. Some may be leaving us, but some will stay and we do pray for God to send us His chosen ones for the vacancies. We pray also for the freedom to continue to teach God's values and His ways. Pray please for the correct discipline required for the students and the teachers to achieve these values. Thanks!

New Year's eve we had our traditional "watchnight service" here in our main Arequipa church. It was well attended and there was a blessed spirit, in testimonies, song, prayer, and a meal - like at midnight! Well, sleep wasn't on the agenda but it was a night worth it for many.

January 15 we have tickets to go to the U.S. for 6 weeks. We hope to see several of you, but sorry we will have to miss many as well. Time is short for us to be away! Our dear granddaughter, Jennifer, (Terri's daughter) is getting married Feb. 23. So we will be glad to be there!! We are so thankful for our grown children, and now their grown and growing children! What a blessing that they love the Lord and now it will be 3 granddaughters with precious godly husbands! The blessing of the Lord maketh rich says the psalmist. Well, the first two of our granddaughters to marry were Rich and are now other last names, but they are rich in the Lord!

To finally end the beginning month of 2019, THANK YOU to all who pray for us and share with us! We hope for you that this year will truly be full of God's blessings for each of you! Our website, done by our dear son Joe is: bobandnoelrich.com. Our support address is:
