and it´s getting bigger by the minute!
So. Update. Tonight at 8, the guys (Sam, Daniel, and Kyle) arrive to join the craziness that is ministry in Yungay for two weeks. Tomorrow at some point por la tarde, our friends Christie, Alexis, and Estephanie (translator extraordinnaire) drive up from Huaraz to join the work, too, for the remainder of the summer! So. Our team is tripling in size in 24 hours. CRAZY, right??
Here is just some of the stuff God is doing through the increase in size of our team:
With the sizes of our classes here in Yungay, we need help being intentional and one-on-one with the kids! More help! Hooray!
One group is going to split off and start teaching English classes in Mancos - a town about 15 minutes away from Yungay.
Pastor Joel is taking the guys with him to do ministry that he couldn´t do with just us girls.
More of us means typically means more attraction for the church here - and as superficial as that sounds, it´s true that gringos get a LOT of attention here. God will definitely continue to draw people when we leave, but what an encouragement we get to be while we´re here!
AAANNDDD there are tons of people in this town we haven´t gotten to know yet! More people, more coverage of area, more chances for reaching out!
So, your prayers are needed more than ever! Pray for UNITY! Pray for PURPOSE! Pray for INTENTIONALITY! Pray that our God would be glorified through His Work here this summer!
