Quick update for the beginning of a new year

Thank you for your prayers!

Well, I had a great time visiting the States for Christmas. It was good to spend some time with my family. But now I’m back in Colombia where I continue to work with the Wounaan and Katío.

While I was in the States, the Katío family has moved to another area of the city. They moved in with another Katío family. Please continue to pray for us as we share the Word of God with them. One issue that makes this difficult is that they speak limited Spanish. So pray the the Word may be clearly communicated and understood. 

Also, continue to pray as we visit and teach the Word with the Wounaan. Pray that they might be discipled and mobilized to take the gospel to their own people in western Colombia. In February and March, a group of Wounaan believers in Panamá are planning an evangelistic trip to some Wounaan communities in western Colombia. I won’t be able to go with them, but I plan to try to visit with them at some point while they’re in Colombia. I would like to be able to connect the Wounaan believers in Bogotá with the Wounaan in Panamá to help them to reach their own people.

In a week, I will be traveling to Pereira, another city in Colombia for some meetings. Part of this trip will include a prayer retreat for all of the IMB missionaries in Colombia. Pray that it will be a good time of refreshing.

Again, thank you for your prayers.

Luke 24:45-47

Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, 
“Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
