2 December 2010 Update

Hello to all of you out there.

Thank you so much for your prayers on our behalf. Just this week one of our faithful prayer warriors emailed us letting us know she was praying that "God will open doors for telling the mystery of Christ" and "that every time I open my mouth I'll be able to make Christ plain as day." Those words are from Colossians 4. We are constantly reminded of your prayers for us. You need to know that your prayers are so important to the work here. Please keep praying.

Thanksgiving Week here was a blessing for us. We were able to travel to the Southern Conchucos area of Peru to visit with our missionary family members: The Bredbenner's and the Pennington's. We had a blast being with them and seeing their part of Peru.

December brings six mission teams from the USA to Peru. Teams from North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, and Colorado will be working to bring the message of HOPE to the Quechua and Ashaninca peoples of Peru. Please pray for the Father to use these teams according to His plan.

We are looking forward to some time of vacation in the USA. We'll be in Mississippi from late December to late January. We are excited about being able to spend some time with our families and friends. It will also be good to spend time in churches telling about the things God is doing here in Peru and other parts of South America.

Before our trip to the USA, our home church, First Baptist Oxford is sending a team. We are excited about seeing them and Jeff will be traveling with them to work among the San Martin Quechua. This project will focus on middle and high school students. Please pray for open doors of ministry among these folks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to support us.

Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson

Dear Peru Family,

Blood family notwithstanding, I think our holidays in Peru were far more meaningful than they have been (thus far) here. Seeing the video from Chavin was so moving to me I cannot express it. I think this is perhaps amplified by both e mails and phone calls from Peruvian pastors today.

I hope December proves to be a great blessing to you and yours.

Blessings from Hattiesburg.
