Prayers Needed!

Hello All,

We are asking for your prayers. Wendy one of our 40/40's has had an infected bite in her leg for the last 4 days and the doctors here in Iquitos have not been able to improve the condition. So the consensus is to have her flown to Arequipa where the medical facilities are much better and there are Extreme staffers that have medical know how. There are two bites and poor Wendy has been enduring incredible pain with amazing grit, at the hands of the doctor who have been squeezing her leg for 4 days. She even endured a volcano of hydrogen peroxide coming out of her leg. She is a tough one that Wendy. Please be praying that the doctors and staff in Arequipa will be able to know what to do. Thanks.

Right now, there is an Extreme Volunteer Mission Project taking place for the next 2 weeks in Puerto Maldonado to finish our home and prepare the soil in Puerto with impact events to reach out to the community. Please pray for the safety of those volunteers many of whom are from our church in McMinnville. Who, by the way we can't wait to see. And pray for the hearts of those in Puerto that they would be softened and that many would come to know Jesus Christ as their savior.

Also please be praying for our family as we pack up our house into suitcases for the final time and head to the location that we have been praying about for the last year. This is an exciting time for our team because Puerto has been in our hearts and minds from the beginning, this whole time of preparation in language school and missionary training is for this place. Pray that God would use us in a mighty way, that his hand would be upon every one of our team members and that we would be able to see how God has already been preparing Puerto for his handiwork. Thank you all for your prayers and please let us know how we can be praying for you all. God Bless.

We are prying for Wendy and for safety in moving. My class loves hearing about your adventures and loved that your friend would trade music lessons for vitamins.
Blessings and much love to you,
Vicky, Marc and Jaylee
