New Update

Greetings from the land of coffee! I hope each of you is doing well and enjoying the summer. "The joy of the L
ORD is our strength" (Neh 8:10). 
I would like to thank everyone who has been faithful in praying for me. Prayer is a much needed part of the Great Commission task. Your partnership with me through prayer enables you to become a part of the work God is doing through me in Colombia. Thank you.

I am continuing to make visits downtown with the Chamí. It is still difficult to have a consistent time of sharing stories from the Word with them. Often they are busy selling their handicrafts to have a good time of studying the Word. It is also difficult to find them at home. Please pray that I may have fruitful time in the Word with the Chamí and other indigenous people who are displaced in Bogotá.

I was able to have a few good visits with one man named Abraham. He used to live in the shelter, and I would visit with him often. But since he moved out of the shelter, it has been difficult to catch him at home. Please pray that I may continue to have good quality time with him in the Word.

There is also a need to have nationals help in the work among the displaced indigenous of Bogotá. This is particularly urgent since I will returning stateside for five months starting in October. 
Please pray that a national will be able to assist me and help continue the work while I'm in the States.

Here are some specific ways you can continue pray for me:

• Pray for me as I seek to find Colombians believers to help out with the work among the displaced in Bogotá.

• Pray that I will be able to engage the displaced Chamí in downtown Bogotá with the gospel.  

• Pray for me as I seek out other displaced indigenous groups in Bogotá with whom to build relationships that bear gospel fruit.  One such group that is in Bogotá are the Wounaan. 

• That I will be able to do the much needed research of the indigenous groups in Colombia.

• That I will be devoted to the Word, prayer, and the tasks at hand and grow closer to the Lord each and every day.

• That the Name of Christ would be great among all peoples as the gospel is proclaimed to the ends of the earth.

Until He Comes, 


Finally, brothers, pray for us, 
that the word of the Lord 
may speed ahead and be honored, 
as happened among you. — 2 Thessalonians 3:1
