25 March 2010 Update...

Hola amigos!

Thank you so much for your prayers for us during the past week or so. Things have been busy. Jeff was with a team from Oxford, Mississippi working out in a jungle area (SEE VIDEO BELOW.). Then, Jeff and Liesa, along with some teammates, went to Huancayo to make some arrangements for an upcoming International World Changers project.

Haylee and Jackson have been busy as well. Jackson is keeping his class laughing at his corny sense of humor and trying to find bugs to feed to the class pet...a scorpion. Haylee has been studying hard and left today for a retreat with the middle school and high school students at her school.

We continue to need your prayers. Please pray for...

  • Haylee as she is away on a retreat with her school. Pray for a good time with the Lord and her friends.
  • The whole family willl be traveling to Iquitos, Peru for some meetings with our teammates who live there. We'll also make some time for some fun things. Iquitos is on the Amazon River so we're excited about seeing that part of our world.
  • April is going to be a busy month with 10 mission teams coming to work with us here. Pray for all of these volunteer teams to have great ministry work while here in Peru.
  • Also, we have our REAP North Equipped for Missions Conference in Oxford, MS on April 27-29. We need a good representation by our Strategy Coordinator churches at this meeting.
Enjoy this video with some of the sights of the work of North Oxford Baptist Church...

This incredible group of students were able to train believers in church planting methodology using the book of Acts, teach English in the village school along with bible stories, lead men's and women's bible studies each afternoon, and play soccer with the men of the village each afternoon. They did a tremendous job continuing to build relationships and provide discipleship training in this village.
