Work and Relationships
Tuesday I was supposed to have gon to Reyde Reyes, but Psa Evangelina didn´t come for me. I had to wonder if only ESLI knew I was going to his mother´s church - because he is off on a mission - and so she didn´t realize the scedule. Still, it di... Read more
Behold, My Beloved Son, In Whom I Am Well Pleased
Of course, this was spoken by the Father when the Christ was manifest at His baptism. Well, last night I was pleased with my son Foreman...but I´ll back up just a bit.
I´m getting to be quite the Peruana (in fact for fun, Foreman called me gor... Read more

Lights of the World
I forgot to mention that yesterday morning before going anywhere, Fore and I walked to Refugio (and I must say I´m pleased with how far I´ve come in fitness to trod uphill and down without feeling winded) where between the two of us we made some... Read more
How Excellent Are His Ways
Well, let´s see...Went to the radio station with Foreman and Abel Wednesday morning. I used notes from a teaching I´d given in a few churches in 2004, called ALEGRIA (happiness, in Spanish), taking each letter to describe things to do for happin... Read more
New and Renewed Friendships
Mistake - TOMORROW is radio.
Okay, so, after yest afternoon at internet, Abel suggested rather than go home to get Mrleni, HE could navigate us to the market. Well, bear in mind, he´s not from Iquitos. But then, along came Brandon, Fore´s ... Read more
Making a Difference
Well, continuing from yesterday...Marleni said that, since there wouldn´t be room for 4 in the motokar to go to the church, she´d stay home, but I would bring her soemthing from Kikiriki. Now, there has been construction going on all over the pl... Read more
Friday after the internet, we ended up not going for Chinese - didn´t want to take another motokar. Rather, we walked to a restaurant Esli knew (took plastic) called The Yellow Rose of Texas - features Tex Mex as well as regional cooking. Fore t... Read more
Well, I stopped by the internet yesterday but didn´t post a "newsletter". In the morning I went with Marleni to visit intercessor Dora Tamani where we breakfasted on TOCINO (bacon - but lean, slab style) and platanos. Then we took the collectiv... Read more
Well, yesterday after I had a nice nap, I asked Yeli if she had some nailclippers as my fingernails were getting a little ragged. But she wanted to give me another manicure (NOT your typical missionary agenda!) and paint them. So, as I was sitti... Read more

Behold how good...
Saturday night we had our pastoral dinner, meeting at Kikirikki´s. I was delighted to see some familiar faces, and told them not to test me on the names of the new pastors I met. We passed a piece of paper around, arranged like a calendar, so th... Read more
Back from the Jungle Churches
We left Iquitos by LANCHA (large boat) on Tues, rather than the hoed for Mon, and LATE, so we arrived at the village of Jorge Chavez on Wed well after the sun had set. But I was delighted to see the familiar face of Pastor Augusto awaiting on sh... Read more

The best laid plans...
It´s so nice to have a trustworthy God so that when our own plans are foiled we at least know that those of our God do not. Marleni, Abel, Levy, and I arrived at the port in good time with our stuff. Ps Johel arrived soon after (Betti took the r... Read more
