Perdónenme Forgive Me

Se que hay personas que leen nuestro blog todos los días. Discúlpenme por no haber escrito algo en los últimos días. El sábado fuimos a Villa Maria como todos los sábados y pasamos un tiempo lindo con los niños y adultos. Oré por una mujer en el parque que se congrega con nosotros. Ella necesitaba un trabajo y estaba muy desesperada. El día domingo enseñé en la iglesia en Surco en la mañana. Después de almorzar con la gente y conversar con algunos salimos Betty y yo. Pasamos la noche en un hotel cerca. Como muchos saben, vivimos en la iglesia y es importante salir de vez en cuando. Hace tiempo que no lo hacemos. Ahora estoy en la casa y mañana saldremos como familia por unos 4 días más de vacaciones. Son las primeras vacaciones que hemos tenido en 2 años. Necesitamos pasar un tiempo entre familia pero no pensamos en tomar vacaciones de Dios. Dios mediante, estaré estudiando la palabra y orando más con mis hijos etc. También estaremos atentos a lo que Dios querrá hacer. Tal vez podremos compartir la fe con alguien en estos días. Que oren por nosotros. Creo que no voy a poner nada nuevo en el blog esta semana entonces.

I know that there are people that read our blog everyday. Forgive me for not writing anything in the last few days. On Saturday we went to Villa Maria as usual and had a nice time sharing with the children and the adults. I prayed for a lady that has been fellowshipping there with us. She needed a job and was getting pretty desperate. On Sunday I taught in the church in Surco in the morning. After eating lunch with the people and conversing with some of them Betty y I left. We spent the night in a hotel not too far away. As many of you know, we live in the church and it’s important to get out once and a while. It’s been quite a while since we’ve done it. Right now I’m back in the house and tomorrow I will be leaving with the family for 4 days of vacation. It will be the first vacation we have had in two years. We need some time together as a family but we aren’t planning to take a vacation away from God. God willing I’ll be studying the word and praying more with my children, etc. We’ll be attentive to whatever else God might want to do too. Maybe we’ll be able to share our faith with someone in the next few days. Pray for us. I don’t think that I’ll be writing anything new for the blog this week.

Brian,

It has been a pleasure to read your blog over the last few weeks. It seems as though I am with you each day as I read these. It was exciting to hear that Luz is married. I am so happy for her.

I have been praying for you and Betty and that your marriage would remain strong. It is so easy to get lost in doing ministry and seeing the Lord doing so much to wander away from what God has called us to do and that is to be a husband and father first. I am so anxious to get there and serve under your leadership.

I have been praying for the different ministries that are going on and specifically praying for the new church building. I hope you will be able to get it soon.

I have been emailing your blog out to my friends so they can get a taste of what it is like there. Hopefully it will bring some excitement to them as far as what we will be doing there.

We are starting to do "coffee parties," now. It will be a blessing for Susan and I to do them together. We want to come by the end of the year. It will be interesting to see how that transpires.

Please give our love to Luz and her new husband. Please give our love to all.

See you soon,

Jack
