The kids are great here in Bogota! Once again I have spent a very large amount of time ministering to young mothers. We have been able to experience salvations, freedom from addictions, and children returned to their mother. My passion for teaching the younger kids on Saturdays, which is something new to me, has grown exponentially also. I have a group study a passage all week and then they put together the lesson. They do little dramas, songs, and sometimes even games. Its been great and the children love it because they are 100% involved in whats going on and the learning process. We have also started memory verses weekly. I'm not sure if its the candy or the memorization but they love it!
Also Amanda just left Bogota last week. Her visit was a blessing in more ways than one. Of course I missed her but what really touched my heart was seeing her heart for ministry and children. We have talked for months now about her joining me in missions and I knew her passion from knowing her, but being able to see it for the first time with my own eyes was such a blessing. It was confirmation that God has made her for me, me for her, and us for this time and purpose. We are more than excited to visit Project Samuel at the end of November! The enemy has done everything possible to keep this trip from happening but with patience and prayer the time has come. We look forward to God’s guidance as to where we will serve our lives together with RFC. All that matters is I will get to minister with my future life partner on the front lines again soon, no matter where God calls us. I cannot explain how much of a blessing it is to serve my life in homes away from home with Amanda.
I feel like I can never say thanks enough to our support group back home. You all are the ones that make this dream a reality by getting behind this calling in our lives. Without such a group of amazing supporters the work we do for the Kingdom may not be possible. So once again, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU!
