Hi to you all,

Well, April is indeed passing fast. March was a busy month here. Sadly, Miguel, whom I mentioned before, died a few days after I wrote that last letter. His young widow, Mabel, has a hard time accepting this, but most of all their little 10 year old son, Jose Miguel, really had a hard time with it. He was continually crying and not wanting to go to school.

Mabel took him to psychologists but they counselled him wrong, even said not to talk to him about God or heaven. Thankfully he is doing better now. We assure him his Dad indeed is in heaven and is totally well. We of course visited them and Mabel calls regularly, she is doing better with it too. Anyway, prayer for her and her children is appreciated. Her mother, sister, brother and grandmother all live in the same house so Mabel is not alone. Of course the extended family does not replace Miguel but they help with the children. They have their individual apts., the house is big.

On a happier note we had a wedding of a couple from our youth group. It was a 2 day affair and really very nice. This couple are believers who want God to be glorified in their lives together.

One of our men leaders had a nasty fall and has some bad wounds, but he is thankfully recovering. Another dear sister had a nervous breakdown and still is not well. A dear older couple has real problems as he has advanced Alsheimers and she has blood pressure problems, stress, etc. Also, sadly we have heard of division in one of the earlier churches the Lord used Bob to found. When the Lord is working the enemy comes with hardships and trials. But God makes Himself real to us in these trials and always.

Truly we thank you all for your prayer for God's work here. Bob is in Tuti (in the Colca canyon) for this weekend for what they call a "convencion". These are special meetings for teaching and encouraging believers from several churches in the canyon. Some of our youth went to teach the children. That is a real blessing for the folks up there too.

March 8 I had surgery to remove a big cataract and replace the lens in my right eye. I do see better and will hopefully soon get glasses adjusted for reading anyway. I don't really need glasses for every day work.

The good news: Wow! What a blessing to be able to teach God's Word, the O.T. this year, to 4th and 5th grades. The students are in school in person now. If anyone gets a sniffle they have to stay home and the computer is on in the classroom so the ones who are home can see and participate. But indeed most are in person and doing really well. We have tons of rules, still have to wear masks, and the kids cannot have recess all together. Each class has an assigned area in the patio and they can go out one or two classes at a time to that assigned area. No programs for special days are permitted yet, but we trust soon to be able to do something like that as we did before. But we are rejoicing in the freedom we have to share Christ and the real meaning of the Easter season.

Always we remember Christ's death and resurrection for us, redemption and salvation, but this season is a special time for this and for sharing Christ with others.

Please do remember our son Joe in the Ukraine helping as a volunteer with the many needs over there. He will have to return to the U.S. in May but hopes to earn enough to go back in June for more time.

Thanks so very much for praying for us and God's work here. And for sharing as you are led. Our website, done by Joe, is bobandnoelrich.com Our support address is:
