Thank you for being with us in prayer and support!
I am asked to train and mentor others for church planting movements and thus I was in South America this past fortnight. This ten day trip was short and fast, yet with a number of highlights:
~ I had time with in-country USA missionaries in Bogota where I was asked to facilitate a deeper level of accountability and friendship with the husband, who has become a very good and respected friend.
~ I had time in Liticia, southern Colombia where I met and was impressed with local cross-cultural missionaries who reach out to various river villages up and down the Amazon from southern Colombia into Brazil and Peru.
~ I had extended time in Caballococha town on the upper Amazon, deep in what they call the jungle. In this location I had extended time with an e3 Partners-led Expedition which was designed to spur on local churches for new churches. We did a lot of evangelism and training, but we also encountered 'persons of peace' for new home groups.
~ I had time with regional pastors in this river area which was heartening to see there profound vision and eager drive for outreach to river communities.
~ I had the chance to 'abandon ship' while traveling by river boat east on the Amazon back into Colombia from Peru. That was interesting!
