Happy New Year! Yes, 2020 is here and may we truly have perfect sight in God's eyes! May our vision be His in seeing the world as He sees it, needing to seek God and live for Him.

Wow! So much has happened in December! God helped the youth from the main Arequipa church in several outreach projects, Christmas bag distribution (helping me with Gospel presentation with this in the state boys home and then in a children's home), then helping our coworkers Jeff and Angela with the outreach in the neighborhood where they have a lot and are working with the neighbors, hoping to start a church there. Then they did the outreach in the town about an hour's drive outside of Arequipa. Several of the believers here brought clothes, food items, goodies and some toys to help in this. God is using our youth and the believers for the most part are more united and blessed to see the Lord at work in lives here.

Along that line, some new ones have been baptized, and some more are wanting to be baptized real soon here and in these places mentioned above. Thanks for helping to pray for these new believers and seekers - for building God's kingdom.

Bob has had a few trips recently as well. First to the Majes valley where believers from 3 or 4 churches in and above the valley came together for a joint meeting, where 3 had been baptized before. These new believers are growing and these joint meetings are a blessing and an encouragement for them. Then, I got to go with him for a whole 2 days at the beach. Christmas tradition! Really nice, a needed relax. This was after the school's year closing Christmas program, which also was a blessing.

The day after getting back from the beach, Bob went with a dear brother to some special meetings in a Quechua community in the highlands above Espinar, Chullopata. They had some difficulties up there as the road does not reach the community so they left the car about a kilometer below and hiked up. Then they had to go back down and up carrying the Bibles and books, tiring in the altitude. Also, while we were at the beach, Bob kicked the sand really hard and ended up with a fissure in the side of his big toe. All the walking up in the mountains really made it swell up and hurt. So after arriving back he had to cancel the trip planned to Juliaca and the Quechua community of Occoro. Bob's foot is healing but it needs rest and elevation.

Another reason for canceling that trip is that a dear brother from one of the neighborhood churches passed away early Dec. 31 - we had visited him and family the day before, then when we heard he had passed into the Lord's presence, we went to the funeral last night before the big watchnight service here. The burial is this afternoon. We are sorry for the family, but they are resting in the Lord, knowing their husband, father, brother is with HIM and free of suffering. Thanks for praying for the Carpio family.

Last night we had a beautiful service, receiving the new year in prayer. Several brought food, so that lasted to way after midnight, but the service itself was really good. Several testimonies of God's grace and working in lives, the youth presentation of highlights of their year of service and fun, new believers, etc. Bob gave a moving testimony of how the Lord has worked in his health - healing of the prostate cancer, and his true desire to keep working for the Lord here, for as long as He permits!

So, may your 2020 be filled with perfect vision, for Christ, and His blessings and leading for each of you. Thanks so very much for praying for us and sharing with us so we can keep on keeping on for God. Our support address is:
