Back Seat: Sis. Nix & Teodora
Front seat: Myself & Bro. Miguel (Preacher/Taxista/Chef)
1 of 3 baptisms that morning
#3 Father of Pastor Tomas, the man baptizing him.
He was too feeble to climb into the tank so they carried him...
(this man passed away the following weekend.)
The man in the yellow shirt is the man God healed of blindness
This is Grace and Anthony, two of my little buddies
Most of my readers will be familiar with the veteran missionaries Bro. Michael and Sis. Dianna Tuttle. They have worked in the nation of Holland as UPCI career-appointed missionaries since 1984. Since then, the work has grown into many other areas of Europe under the direction of Pastor Tuttle, and has become, in its own rite, a center for revival and evangelism on the continent. Their two children, Matthew and Anna, grew up on that mission field. Bro. Matthew has since become a fellow laborer there with them, and now pastors the church in the city of Dordrecht. This last year he preached at the North Little Rock Camp Meeting and did a superb job! For these many years the Tuttles have continued to serve as unwavering missionaries...
That is, until a couple weeks ago when I started seeing his face appear on posters all over Lima campaigning for political office here in Peru - for congress of all things!
Oh, and it looks like he's changed his name too!
(There's something for the forums...)
G'night & God bless!

Forgive me for my partial negligence, as I have been very busy. My weekly schedule is as follows: Sunday, leave for church at 9am, return around 11pm. Monday through Friday, Work from 8am - 4pm; then leave for either church or Bible school at 5:30pm and return around 11pm. Saturday is our grocery shopping day as well as our "eat at Baca Vaca" day, also a busy day for the most part. So, needless to say, ... I guess I don't need to say it then.
P.S. If anyone has any questions, comments or requests, feel free to avail yourself of the "comments" section of each blog. I will try to satisfy each inquiry to the best of my ability. I would also simply enjoy hearing from you!
For now, please enjoy the following pictures taken from this last week's occurrences.
I never realized how much this restaurant would mean to me before I started working with children 5 days a week.
I had to zoom way in on this one. That's a very high radio tower, and that speck is a man climbing it... without any type of fall protection, of course. Why weigh yourself down?
A new brand of ritz-like crackers has just come out recently... I guess they're not as good as the originals.
Bro. Nix at the airport. He went to Iquitos this past weekend for a church meeting.
Hno. Juan de la Cruz preached Sunday morning back home in San Felipe.
The church that we went to on Sunday night in another part of Lima where Bro. Jose preached.
The only church I've been to where they had 3 separate song services. :)

I want to just take a quick moment here to say thanks so much to those of you who have contributed to my missions endeavor. I really do appreciate your kindness. I want to also thank those of you who continually mention my name in prayer. Your prayers mean so much to me and I really do want to be a blessing to His work while I'm here.

First things first. It has been brought to my attention that perhaps, some of my faithful, as well as not-so-faithful, readers might be interested in seeing where I live, where I work, where I spend my almost-free time, etc. So, in order to keep the natives happy, I will oblige. The following pictures are of the previous mentioned places and things (as well as some other stuff). Please feel free to enjoy.
