Our family is in Peru for two years to serve with Extreme Nazarene. We are living in the jungle city of Puerto Maldonado supporting our team of 8 missionaries as 12 churches are planted here in 18 months! Please keep checking in to keep up on our our ministry and adventures in Peru!

Well, we leave Arequipa tomorrow morning and head to Lima. It has been a good month of adjusting to life with two kiddos, family time and celebrating the birth of our Lord. You can see more on our family blog here. Tomorrow when we arrive in Lima we have an appointment at the US Embassy to register Grady as a U.S citizen and apply for his passport. Please pray for everything to go smoothly.

We leave Lima and head back to Puerto on Wednesday. We recieved word Christmas Eve that there was flooding at our house. The flood water got into our water cistern and also fried our pump. We sent two of our 40/40s (the only ones there for Christmas) to Cusco since we couldn't do anything from here. They also told us we have "dirty, smelly" water running out of our front door. This is most likely due to the septic issues we have had and thought were fixed. (click here to see pics of our flooding last year). All that to say, your prayers would be greatly appreciated! We don't know what we are going back to exactly but we know we have our work cut out for us and it is a bit overwhelming to think of bringing an infant home to that. Thank you, thank you for your prayers, we couldn't do this without them!

Tracy & Tyson-
We lift you up in prayers as you battle this ordeal. We are SO proud of your "light" that shines for JESUS!! This is all about Psalm 91:2. We are SO SO proud of you guys and we have remained as fearless prayer warriors for you guys all this time and we want you to know what a "privilege" it has been to pray for you all. We love you guys and wish to congratulate you on welcoming Grady into the world.
God is SO good. Hang in there my dear friends. Praying for safety, clean clothes, luggage and mold situations. Most of all that GOD WILL TAKE CONTROL OF IT ALL. May you know deeply that the one thing we owe absolutely to God is to NEVER be afraid of anything!! Love you guys dearly!

Thank you for...
Consider yourselves hugged.

The Sharp Gang :)
