We are excited that all 4 of our American 40/40s for Puerto Maldanado have arrived here in Peru! We are very excited about our group and look forward to our 2 years together. Our Peruvian 40/40s will join us after our language training when we head to Pucallpa. Thursday morning we all met up at the office and were able to get some pictures together. We were also very blessed to hear some words from Pastor Edilberto Solano. He is the current District Superintendant of the whole of south Peru and is overseeing missionary activities. Pastor Solano words brought tears to my eyes. He said that us being here is an answer to prayer that began in 2002. He spoke about how the south of Peru has been forgotten and about his desire to see the people reached but that he had no idea what the Lord has in store through Extreme. We felt extremely humbled by his words and feel blessed to be a part of this team!

Please pray for these young missionaries. The Lord has much work to do through them and your prayers are needed!
