Well, yes, we had a nice trip just before fall! It is a bit more complicated. I had a nasty trip that led to worse fall. My son in law will say to his whole church that I have the habit of doing this. True. Last Thursday we were going to visit and share with some of the needy believers when I tripped on the curb of the sidewalk by where the car was waiting and the whole weight of me went right down on my right elbow. Very bad fall. Big bone of right elbow completely broke, fracture.

Yesterday was my surgery, put nails and stitches and wire in, etc. So I had anesthesia. Strong antibiotics and pain pills are destroying my stomach, Dr. just now gave me something less strong. So we see. Thanks for praying, and please pray that I would never never do this again. This time I am really down. Thanks.

Well, the better news is that August opened up a bit here even though there are more than 1,500 new cases each day in Arequipa of coronavirus. Death toll is down some so that is at least somewhat encouraging. But we have permission to take the car out and go visit and help the needy ones, and Bob even dared to have his weekly leaders meeting here, as many a 7 guys sitting well spaced and wearing masks. It has gone well the first 2 times.

And - better yet, last Saturday here we had 2 baptisms. Again, less than 10 people and distancing, masks, etc. One of these was a lady Julian and Jeffrey had been talking to about the Lord, and the other the son of the believer from Tiabaya who built this church house where we live, meet, everything. Simon had been talking for years to his children about following the Lord and is now seeing fruit from this. This Saturday we should have another baptism here. Also some of the grown children of a believing family. So, praise the Lord for these new ones, thanks for praying for them.

Thanks too for all you share with us for the Lord's work here. Truly we are very grateful, many blessings for each of you. Love, Noél for us
