February Update

I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for praying for me and for the work God is doing in Bogota.

I mentioned in my last update that Sercelino, one of the Wounaan believers, has had some more threats to his life. He seems to be doing well. He is at home, and the threats seem to have subsided. Pray that he will continue to be safe and trust in the faithfulness of our Lord.

With the Wounaan, we have been focusing on the topic of prayer from various passages of Scripture. Soon we plan to begin to look at the topic of the Word of God. Pray that God will use these studies to help the Wounaan to grow in their faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Please continue to also pray for our work among the Katios. Eliezer and his family have returned to Chocó. But we are continuing to meet with Fernando and his family. We have also been trying to help them get connected with a feeding program for the displaced. Please pray they their hearts will be opened to receive the gospel and that many will come to know Christ through their witness.

Here are some prayer concerns:

• That we will be able to disciple the Wounaan believers so that they may continue to grow in the faith, see the grand story of the Bible in the gospel, and apply the Word to their lives.

• That the Wounaan in Bogotá will be mobilized to send out their own missionaries to reach their on people in Chocó.

• That the work with the Katío would be fruitful and lead to many coming to Christ and biblical churches planted.

• That I will be devoted to the Word, prayer, and the task 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.

Acts 28:31

…proclaiming the kingdom of God 
and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ 
with all boldness and without hindrance.
