We have been so busy here, that I have really fallen behind on blogging. We just finished building a new, bigger, church in Puyupungo (the Kichwa Indian church) and we are having our dedication service there on Thursday. This church has no electrcity, but we will have a drum set in it for music, along with our tambourines. Charles built a beautiful, big round altar, so more souls can pray in it for their forgiveness and for their needs. I’m very excited! It’s beautiful!
We also recently bought land in Yantana (this is where our Shuar Indian work is) and cleaned it last week. The ones who participate in this work came out to help us clean the land real good. No, there are no lawn mowers, no power saws, or dozers, whatever kind of machinery one would need. We used machetes, and hand cut small timbers, and a whole lot of tall thick grass! And now the men have begun cutting wood to construct the church, so it will probably begin going up next week!
God is moving and blessing in our services. We are still doing our rice and clothing distributions monthly, blessing more families than before. Also, we just gave out numerous backpacks and school supplies to many jungle children for their school year. It’s such a joy to help others in need.
Good things going on in Ecuador! God bless all of you!
