Greetings! Thank you for praying for me and the work that god is doing in Colombia.  Here's another update.

A few weeks ago I went to a small town in town in the northwest part of the country where I participated in a training event for indigenous leaders from all over the country. It was a story-based training addressing animism and the doctrine of the church.  Regarding animism, we looked at seven different stories from the Bible that address the issue. Regarding the doctrine of the church, we discussed leadership in the church (pastors and deacons) and the ordinances (baptism and the Lord's Supper).  Churches are being planted throughout the people groups of Colombia. But many more groups are still unreached. Please pray that our Lord will build his church among the peoples of Colombia, that many churches will be planted, and that believers will grow in Christ. 

The day I was traveling back to Colombia, the Katío family I have been visiting returned to western Colombia where they are from. Please pray that the gospel we have given to them will take root and be fruitful.


Isaiah 12:4
And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted."
Colossians 1:13-14
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,
 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
