4TH QUARTER NEWSLETTER

 

FIRST OF ALL SORRY --THERE IS NOT ANY PHOTOS WITH THIS NEWSLETTER

I NORMALLY LIKE PUTTING SOMETHING FOR YOU TO SEE BUT TO TAKE PHOTOS FROM THE VIDEOS WE HAVE BEEN DOING TAKES EXTRA TIME WHICH JOSE HAS NOT TO GIVE ME ON HIS COMPUTER
THE WORK LOAD FOR HIM HAS BEEN EXTREMELY HEAVY
USUALLY THE PHOTOS I SEND YOU WITH THE NEWSLETTERS ARE TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM VIDEO TAPINGS

 

MORNINGS
I DECIDED A COUPLE MONTHS BACK TO DEVOTE MY MORNINGS COMPLETELY TO MYSELF IN THE HOUSE
MY TIME TO PRAY FOR HOURS IF I WANT , TO STUDY WITHOUT DISTURBANCES
THESE 2 THINGS WERE BEING NEGLECTED BECAUSE OF WHO EVER WHEN EVER KNOCKING ON THE DOOR WANTING ME FOR WHATEVER
IT IS ALSO MY TIME FOR SEWING . WASHING CLOTHES AND DISHES ETC.
I LIVE WITHIN A BLOCK FROM THE CHURCH - SO ITS SO EASY FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH TO SHOW UP WHENEVER
IT HAS IT PROS AND CONS
MY MORNINGS GO BY WAY TOO FAST
ONLY WHEN FOR EXAMPLE A CONFERENCE IS IN THE CHURCH I COME OUT OF HIDING SO TO SPEAK TO HELP WORK WITH JOSE ON FILMING THE EVENT

 

AFTERNOONS
I BEGIN IN THE OFFICE
THIS IS WHERE I AM DOING A LOT OF TEACHING CLASSES WITH ONE OR TWO PERSONS AT A TIME.....I CAN SEE HOW GOD IS ALSO USING THEM NOT TO JUST LEARN BUT HELP ME PRONOUNCE THE WORDS IN SPANISH- WORDS THAT YOU DONT USE IN NORNAL CONVERSATION - WORDS THAT NORMALLY ARE USED FOR TALKING ABOUT THE BIBLE ARE DIFFERENT
MY STUDENTS ARE ALSO MY TEACHERS, SO KIND AND MERCIFUL WITH ME AS I LEARN TO PREACH COMPLETELY CORRECT IN SPANISH
THERE IS ONLY ONE GROUP OF 10 LADIES THAT I AM TEACHING IN LA MOLINA
A GROUP OF VERY DEAR SISTERS LEARNING ABOUT DANCE
THEY HAVE ONE MORE LESSON AND THEIR LESSONS WILL BE FINISHED WITH ME
THEN THERE WILL BE A KIND OF TEST FOR EACH OF THEM
THEY WILL HAVE TO PREPARE A DANCE
WE WILL MAKE IT A SPECIAL EVENING EVENT JUST FOR THEM
THIS WILL BE A TIME THAT THE LORD WILL ALSO BE MINISTERED TO AS THESE GIRLS SHOW THEIR LOVE FOR THEIR SAVIOUR IN THEIR DANCES
THE CHURCH'S SCHOOL - SAN LUCAS - JUST FINISHED ANOTHER YEAR OF SCHOOLING
UNLIKE IN THE STATES OUR YEAR ENDS IN JUNE AND STARTS AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER
JOSE FILMED THE KINDER GARDEN GRADUATION OF SAN LUCAS SCHOOL
HE REALLY DID A PROFESSIONAL JOB ON THE EDITING FOR DVDS
ALL THE PARENTS NATURALLY WANT A COPY
THE RAINS HAVE CONTINUED HERE SO MUCH THAT MUCH OF THE PROVINCES OF LORETO AND SAN MARTIN - WHERE I LIVE- IS UNDER WATER
TARAPOTO AND PLACES CLOSE- THE TOWN WHERE I LIVE- IS DRY
BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FOR MONTHS NOW UNDER WATER
ONE OF THOSE PLACES IS PAPAPLAYA
THE PASTOR WHO OVERSAW THE PEOPLE OF PAPAPLAY --BEFORE THE FLOOD WATERS BEGAN DIED HE IS SO MISSED
I KNOW HE IS ENJOYING THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD NOW BUT THERE ARE THOSE HERE THAT MISS HIM GREATLY, LIKE MYSELF
HIS WIFE HAS COMMITTED HERSELF TO CONTINUE THE WORK OF THE LORD IN PAPAPLAYA
SHE IS A BRAVE AND VALIENT WOMAN OF GOD
I MET HER AND HER HUSBAND ON THE VERY FIRST TRIP TO PERU
THEY WERE THE PASTORS OF SANTO SOFIA AT THAT TIME
PLEASE PRAY FOR GOD'S MERCY OVER THE JUNGLE OF PERU, THAT THE LORD WOULD DRY THE LAND QUICKLY AND FOR THE RAINS TO STOP OVER THIS PARTICULAR PART OF PERU
I HAVE AN INVITATION TO GO TO SISA IN FEBRUARY
THIS WILL BE THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHURCH WITH 10 CHURCHES ALSO INVITED FOR A GREAT TIME OF CELEBRATION IN THE LORD
IT IS COSTMARY HERE TO HAVE A CELEBRATION FOR THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHURCHES
I PLAN TO TEACH A LARGE GROUP IN THEIR LANGUAGE - SPANISH- FOR THE FIRST TIME
AND A PROPHETIC DANCE OR TWO WILL BE DONE AS WELL
JOSE MAY BE TAKING THE CHURCH'S PROJECTOR FOR VIDEOS IN THE EVENING OR AFTERNOON
I AM EXCITED ABOUT THIS UPCOMING EVENT
MY TRIP IN OCTOBER TO PAPAPLAYA WAS CANCELLED DUE TO THE DEATH OF THE PASTOR THERE
SO THIS WILL BE THE VERY FIRST TIME TO SPEAK TO A CONGREGATION WITHOUT A TRANSLATOR
I HAVE WAITED 4 YEARS TO SEE THIS HAPPEN
 
THE MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER
WE HAD SOME SPECIAL PEOPLE HERE IN TARAPOTO
BARBARA AND GEORGE RAGLAND WERE HERE TO MINISTER AND TEACH AGAIN
THEY WERE HERE IN 2002
WHEN THEY CAME THIS TIME THERE HAS BEEN A GREATER NUMBER MORE OF YOUTH IN THE CHURCH, PRAISE GOD FOR THIS!
MORNING SESSIONS WERE DEEPER LESSONS WHILE THE EVENINGS WERE THEIR BASIC LESSONS WHICH WAS GREAT FOR ALL THE NEW YOUNG PEOPLE WHO WERE AT THE EVENING SESSIONS
THE MORNINGS WERE DEVOTED TO TEACHING THE PASTORS AND OTHERS WHO ALREADY KNEW ALL THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE AND WERE ALREADY USING THE BASIC TEACHING FROM THE 2002 VISIT
THEY WERE BLESSED TO LEARN MORE DEEPER LESSONS WHICH I KNOW THEY WILL BE FAITHFULLY PUTTING INTO PRACTICE
THE PEOPLE WERE TRUELY BLESSED WITH LOTS OF INFORMATION TO HELP THEM LIVE A MORE VICTORIOUS LIFE IN CHRIST
SOME WERE SET FREE OF CURSES , THERE WERE HEALINGS AND MIRACLES THAT OCCURRED AS WELL
WE PRAISE GOD FOR ALL OF THESE
IT WAS TRUELY A BLESSED TIME WITH THEM
THE LOVE THEY POUR OVER THE PEOPLE WHILE THEY WERE HERE HAS BLESSED THEM SO AND WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN
AT THIS TIME THE FLOODING HAD JUST BEGUN SO MANY OF THOSE PASTORS WHO WERE INVITED DID NOT COME
BUT WE FILMED THE ENTIRE TEACHINGS SO THEY ALL WILL RECEIVE ON DVD THOSE SAME LESSONS WHICH THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE OVER AND OVER
THIS IS SOMETHING WE DO FREE OF CHARGE FOR THE PASTORS UNDER PASTOR JAIME
ADIN , WHO WAS THEIR TRANSLATOR AND IS FROM TARAPOTO AND WILL BE HELPING ME TRANSLATE A COPY THAT I HAVE OF ALL THEIR LESSONS THAT THEY TAUGHT IN THE MORNING SESSIONS
WE HAVE ALREADY THEIR EVENING LESSONS TRANSLATED
I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO GIVE A COPY OF THIS TO ALL THE PASTORS AS WELL AS THE DVDS IN THE FUTURE
IT IS MY GREAT DESIRE TO SEE THE CHURCHES GROW AND BECOME SPIRITUAL FATHERS

 

THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH OF DECEMBER---
WE HAD AN EVANGELIST HERE
PAUL CONGER WAS HERE FOR 4 DAYS WITH CRUSADES IN THE EVENING AND HIS TEAM TAUGHT IN A DAY CONFERENCE
MANY PEOPLE WERE ENCOURAGED AND REFRESHED BY THE MOVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
WE ARE IN NEED OF ANOTHER COMPUTER
THE ONE I HAVE WAS A SECOND HAND, NEW TO ME AT THE TIME - WAS THE PRODUCTIONS COMPUTER THAT JOSE USED TO DO THE VIDEOS UNTIL THAT PART OF THE COMPUTER DIDN'T WORK ANY MORE BUT THE REST OF THE COMPUTER WAS OK FOR OTHER TYPES OF WORK AS THE KIND I DO, MY RESEARCH, INTERNET, AND PHOTOS
NOW THIS COMPUTER DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK RIGHT FOR ME EITHER BUT IS STILL USEFUL FOR THE INTERNET ONLY
JOSE IS ALWAYS DOWNLOADING WHATEVER HE NEEDS FOR THE MINISTRY WITH THIS COMPUTER
SO NOW WE ARE LOOKING INTO A NEW ONE FOR ME, FOR MY END OF THE MINISTRY

 

IMMIGRATIONS
THIS YEAR AT THIS TIME I HAVE NO REPRESENTATION IN THE IMMAGRATIONS OFFICE
IT IS NECESSARY I HAVE SOMEONE TO RENEW MY VISA EVERY YEAR
I AM PRAYING FOR A NEW PERSON TO FILL THIS RESPONCIBLITY
WITHOUT REPRESENTATION - IT IS HARD TO LIVE HERE
PLEASE BE PRAYING ABOUT THIS
ISSUE OF CITIZENSHIP - NOW LOOKS LIKE IT IS UNAVAILABLE
RELATIONS WITH PERU AND THE UNITED STATES NEEDS TO IMPROVE FOR THIS TO HAPPEN
MY VISA NEEDS TO BE RENEWED IN JANUARY
AS ALWAYS THERE IS SO MUCH THAT WE ARE DOING -- THESE ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS QUARTER ALONG WITH SOME THINGS I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW AS WELL AS THINGS I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL
WE LOVE YOU --AND---GOD BLESS YOU
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE PRAYING AND FINANCIALLY HELPING US
WE APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU ARE DOING, WE MAKE A GREAT TEAM FOR JESUS!
TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY
LOVE YOU ALL
HAPPY NEW YEAR
