Hi to you all,

Well, we had hoped our quarantine, shutdown, would finish by this month. But now it is extended thru June 30. Hopefully next month, people can go back to work, but it is true that we still are having more cases and deaths from this awful virus. Many have lost their jobs and won't be able to get them back.

Some good things have happened in May though. First, our big family news: We are now great grandparents!!. (I really don't feel older.) Eliza Lynn was born May 23. Her mother is daughter of our daughter. So we have daughter Theresa Lynn, granddaughter Jennifer Lynn, and great granddaughter Eliza Lynn. We are so very thankful to our Lord, our Creator. We pray this little one will come to know the Lord Jesus and we know her parents really will lead her in God's ways.

Also, even though we miss being able to go out and visit our brothers and sisters here, most of them call us, and Bob has a real telephone ministry. The other day the son of a believer from Pampacolca (Antonio) called, wanting to get right with the Lord. He had not been walking with the Lord and probably was not a true believer. We surely pray he is now. He confessed his sins and prayed with Bob. His mother and family were very glad.

Others call wanting counsel or having questions about God's Word. We also can record some singing and Bob's messages - on Facebook: De Cristo. Most of our brothers who have access to facebook here watch these and call that they are blessed and helped, so we are thankful for all these opportunities. God can indeed turn bad into good, and we are just instruments for Him. Seems true that we are here where the Lord wants us to be now, even though we cannot travel nor visit in person. Families are meeting together and uniting sometimes with neighbors, our brothers are maturing in God's Word and others are coming to Christ.

Also, in especially one of our mountain areas, Espinar, and on up to Santo Tomas, some of the believers are evangelizing, able to walk to other towns and planning baptisms soon. Hardly any virus is up there so they are freer. Here in the city our believers are uniting and sharing - helping each other as they can, some distributing groceries to the needy, and calling and encouraging each other. We have been able to help many of the needy in the church with offerings we have had, and our people are being generous as they can.

Our colleagues Jeff and Angela are having a real ministry in the area where Angela has land, distributing food, especially vegetables and fruits to the poorest of neighbors there. Jeff and Angela want to see a church established in that neighborhood. There is no church there, not even Roman Catholic, so being able to help the folks materially now in their need they are also having opportunities to share Christ and some are sincerely listening. Others are bitter over their lot in life, but God is definitely working there.

As to school, of course neither students nor teachers cannot come personally but our teachers are working and sending lessons out via internet, whatsapp, tv, radio, etc. and though some have left our program, most are staying and are learning and are happy. Of course most of them cannot pay fees now, and Marino has reduced these fees to practically nothing, whatever is within the parents' ability.

We were blessed by some offerings from some of you to help with this. Thank you so very very much. Our dedicated teachers need to be paid, they are working hard. How we do pray however that we will be free to have school for real with teachers and students present next year (starting March) Please help us pray also for the continued freedom to teach God's Word. The government here would like to close private schools. We pray and unite with other Christian schools here to seek this freedom. Honestly our Ebenezer Christian school and other Christian schools here have much better education than the public schools, and are taught true Biblical values, whereas the govt. program goes against God's values. Please help us pray. Thank you.

God is still in control, our times are in His hands and His ways are always the best. His and our enemy are attacking, but we are on the Lord's side and He will win. Thank you so very much for standing with us. And our support address is:
