We Made It!

We made it to Puerto Wednesday and were so excited to be welcomed at the airport by Abby & Daniel (you can see our excitment below)
We then were able to go out to the jobsite to see all our friends from back home in McMinnville. It is really so wonderful to have them here and see how hard they are working. The house looks amazing and they are all working so very hard to get it all done and doing an amazing job. I was in tears not only seeing everyone, but seeing them work on our home...it makes it so much more special.
There is a lot going on with construction and then there are impact groups going to schools, women's jails, and communities. People are coming to know Christ and experiencing His love through this group. It is amazing to have this going on and there is so much for our 40/40 team to come in and follow up on...Praise the Lord!
Prayers: Please pray for the work the impact teams are doing and for the hearts of the people in Puerto to be open to Christ. Pray for the construction team, for safety and for everything to be smooth and to finish on time. Pray for our 40/40 team that will be arriving next Tuesday...that they would be ready to hit the ground running and for safe travels here. Thank you for your prayers for Wendy. She is in Arequipa still but everything is healing well and she will join the rest of the team here on Tuesday. Please pray for Kai, he has had an eye infection for the last 5 days and they are very red and swollen. We are very thankful to have Rhonda from our church here who is a nurse...if this had to happen I would pick now:)
Thank you to everyone for your prayers...God Bless!
