Once again we headed to the Andes to visit missionary Pastor Josue Tinta in the town of Chinchil. We were a mix of this year's four ARRIBA students and members from our church, El Manantial - a total of 14.
|Pastor Josue always opens his home to us no matter how many we are. He and his wife Zarela do all they can to make us feel welcome.|
|The need for benches was something we were able to help with this year.|
|Pastor Josue ordered the wood from a larger town nearby.|
|We had the metal legs made in Lima and brought them with us on the bus.|
|Eight new benches|
|Kyle trying to learn Quechua words and phrases.|
|Going over crafts for the kids' clubs.|
|On our way to school for the first kids' club.|
Because they are in the process of building a new elementary school, we had to meet in a nearby field.
|This year's theme was a "Change of Direction", teaching that it is only by the power of God that our lives can be changed through Christ.|
|Ready to listen to the Bible story.|
|After the lesson, we broke up in to smaller groups and reviewed the Bible story by asking questions. This gave us a better chance to share |
one-on-one with the kids.
|Maria from our church is a natural when it comes to working with kids!|
|Here Jhersson is using an Evangecube to share the gospel with his group.|
|One afternoon we had to go to the church for craft time as it began to rain!|
|That made things a little more chaotic but working in the groups helped.|
|Good interaction with the kids.|
|The last evening we were there we had a double wedding.|
|Cesar and Jacki from our church sang a special.|
Thank you for praying for:
opportunities to witness, protection, and health.
There were a few professions of faith, and we are trusting the Lord to continue to work in the hearts and lives of those children and adults who heard His Word.
