Oh. My. Goodness.

I can´t even explain to you all how good God is. Él es tan bueno. First of all, Noemi and I went with Tommy to Caraz again today to check up on some plans for future work in schools there, and the director of the school was TOTALLY open to a group from NC coming in to share the Gospel with life values and True Love Waits with the kids there. AND as we were walking in, three adorable 11 or 12 year old girls ran up to me and said HOLA! and were grinning ear to ear as I talked with them in Spanish. SO INCREDIBLE. Then, when we got back to Yungay, we took Caitlyn to the hospital here - she got a drip and a couple of shots to make her stomach better, and tonight now that she´s back at the hotel, she´s the old Caitlyn again!!! SUCH A BLSSING! AAANNNNNDDDD as if that weren´t enough, class today was indescribably amazing. We had probably 20 students, over half of which are not involved with the church. We taught greetings and farewells, played BINGO, acted CRAZY, and got to share the reason why we´re here - to share about our Lord and how good He is. As we taught these students how to introduce themselves in English, we also taught them how they can be introduced to their heavenly Father through His Word - written especially for them. SO COOL. We´re going to teach them John 3:16 in English little by little in hopes that they will not only learn this language, but also they will learn of their Father´s love. And they GOT IT. Several kids are even more advanced than we expected, so we´re starting an intermediate class on Fridays! GOD IS SO GOOD.

So. Obviously, prayers have been answered. Thank you. More than words can say.

El Dios es tan grande, tan fuerte y poderoso, no hay nada que no pueda hacer!
Los montes (como estos en Yungay) son Suyos, los rios son Suyos, las estrellas (en el cielo ahora) son Suyas también. El Dios es tan grande, tan fuerte y poderoso, no hay nada que no pueda hacer. WOOT WOOT!


  1. Ahhh! This is so wonderful! (minus the spanish part...) just kidding, this is great all of it! Please Never EVER lose your enthusiasm for everything I love you so much!

  2. yay!! isn't it cool how God works through prayer? i'm seeing that so much more than I used to. i love you a lot and i miss you and am praying for you. my mom took a picture of me and you and aly to her VBS class last week to show them an example of people doing missions-she showed them us and told them about how you're in peru and i'm in chicago and aly's in ohio and they prayed for us all. and we all know God listens to little kid prayers A LOT. so i'm glad things have gotten better. i can't tell you how much i love hearing what is happening with yall. can't wait to be with you and see how God has changed us and taught us this summer!!
