Saturday- Decorated for our Christmas program "Volviendo a Cristo en Navidad"
Sunday- Buddy told the story of Abraham in a narrative way to remind us of God's faithfulness
in-spite of our faithlessness.
Monday- Traveled to Cusco to see a dentist and see baby Adalia...
Praising God for His protection during Angel's surgery. The surgery lasted 5 hours. It was brutal but even through out it all I saw God's strength. He gave Angel courage and a sound mind. Praise God!
Tuesday- Shopped in Cusco for the kids christmas gifts...
I didn't realize how much fun it would be to shop for the kids. It was the first time I got to shop for them alone. The Lord kept bringing Matthew 7:11 to mind.
The icing to our Cusco trip...
Baby Adalia Slopa Sebastian
She is growing stronger each day. Yesterday, Emily was able to cuddle her for an hour.
Today, she nursed her for the first time. I am continually amazed at God's goodness and grace.
He is the one that holds each breath we take.
Wednesday- Traveled back from Cusco and went out with the kiddos to invite for the
Last week we made a couple hundred cookies to give out with our christmas invitations. We were able to hand out about 100 bags to the hospital personal and about 60 more to our neighbors.
We went door to door with the kiddos. The boys rode on their bikes making it an adventure in itself.
Thursday- La Joyita bible study
(Segundo and Buddy talking about Yine translation. So thankful for what God is doing in Segundo's heart.)
We were locked out of our normal meeting place, but the neighbor graciously allowed us to meet at her place.
Abigail Yoder was visiting us this week. We were glad to have her here. We were blessed to see how God used her to witness to this young man. His name is Dima. He is from Russia. He was polite and had many questions but seemed very closed to the gospel. Please pray for him.
It was exciting to see that despite the inconvenience of lack of seats we had more than the usual in attendance.
We had 11 adults and 10 kids.
Friday- We said farewell to Abigail and built a chicken coop
Abigail and I got to go to Nazareth's school in place of her mommy.
Since Emily is in Cusco with baby Adalia.
So blessed to be instruments in the redeemers hand...
