We thank God for your faithful prayers for the ministry here in Colonia! And we rejoice in the wonderful winter camp that He granted us. We spent three days at camp and enjoyed many blessings. First of all, five souls were convicted of their sins and turned to Christ for salvation. Countless other youth made decisions to trust God more fully in their everyday life, and for consecration. The theme was ¨Heroes of the Faith¨ which lent itself well to encouraging our teens to follow God just like Abraham, Moses, and the disciples, among others. The preaching centered on living separated lives in a wicked world. We praise the Lord for how He worked in our teens´ hearts and give Him the glory for all the eternal fruit He saw fit to give. Thank you to each of you who gave to and prayed for this endeavor.

Another exciting thing on the horizon is our church building project! The mother church is in desperate need of more Sunday school classrooms, so we as a church are moving into action. Within the next few months, we asking the Lord to provide the $7,000 we need to divide the original chapel from only one into several classrooms. We are raising a special building fund for this purpose, for which we already have $500. Please pray for our people in this matter, that God would increase our faith in Him and the remodeling could be completed in a timely fashion!
We are looking forward to this month and its related activities. With the much talked-about holy week, good Friday, and Easter Sunday coming up, we want to make the most out of this season to reach the unsaved. Many Uruguayans see the week before Easter as simply another week of vacation, and a time off school or work. We would like to challenge them to personally know the Savior who came to die and take our place on the cross. Please be in prayer for the evangelistic meeting we have planned in El Real (where our church annex is) for Saturday, April 23rd at 6 p.m. We will be inviting the whole neighborhood for a special Easter multi-media program, followed by a salvation message and invitation. We trust the Lord will be pleased to see souls saved and new contacts made through this outreach. Thank you for joining with us in prayer for this special event!

Well, our news is that we have been back in the U.S. for almost a month now! We are staying in NWOhio, with Rebekah's parents. We are so grateful the Lord provided for our trip back. And, we are greatly enjoying our time with family and friends in the Northern hemisphere. We have been travelling to our supporting churches, and visiting some new ones as well. Thank you for praying for us during this time, for our safety while travelling, and for strength to minister to the church folks we visit with. God has been good to us, as He always is, and we praise Him for that.
Meanwhile, Pastor Archie was left in charge of the Annex in Uruguay on Sunday mornings. The people continue to be faithful in their attendance. Please pray for our church anniversary (#12) and summer camp season about the time we return to Uruguay (Jan. 19th)! It will be wonderful to see our church people again, and to return to the warmer weather. Although Gaby and Steven are outside making a snowman as I write! And we certainly hope to enjoy a white Christmas as well!
