As we informed in our previous report, we planned to take a trip to to the south of Colombia, to the Amazon, and visit the missionary family that is there and to give Liliana a first hand experience to what could probably be our future ministry.
It was a long trip getting there. We had many interruptions because of highway maintainance and one hour wait because of an accident. A bus got off road and fell down a cliff. This event made the night time, while we were crossing the mountain rage, the hardest part of the trip. Nevertheless, we thank God there was not much traffic and the climate was favorable. When we arrived we realize that our back tire was flat because it was punctured. We got there with a flat punctured tire, without even knowing it!
Thank God we got there safe and sound. We didn´t have any problems coming back home.
Part of the road we had to cross at night. Out of the 4 landslide zones, this one is the worst. We crossed this small provisional metal bridge that was put up in September. Because of this, we decided to travel in the less rainy season.
IN THE JUNGLE. . .
We rested for a day and set off our trip on boat quickly to the small town close to the native communities. A brother in Christ welcomed us, the head of the only evangelical church there. He provided us with a motor and a canoe to head on our trip to the communities we desired to visit.
From our perspective, it was a bit overwhelming thinking about leaving our comfortness to live in different conditions than what we are used to. But recognizing that our Creator is worthy, and that his desire is to rescue the souls of the people, we were filled with encouragement and were willing to obey His perfect will.
The bugs where terrible pests for us, there are no bathrooms so we had to use a “shovel and a bucket”. It wasn´t very comfortable to be there so it was a great challenge for us. What struck us the most was the spiritual need and desire for God´s Word that we saw in some of the people there.
Julieta and Milton with their children, Juanita and Natanael. They will be our team.
Back home it was of great encouragement to see the Bulla family´s hope and desire to work with us; wondering if the Lord is moving our hearts to serve with them in this part of the missionary work.
We hadn´t decided whether or not we were going to work with them, but we agreed to it three days after our trip. The Lord confirmed in our hearts that we wanted to go with them, doing our best to serve as much time as He wanted us to, with the Bulla family, serving the people from this part of the Amazon.
So, we want to tell you that from now on we are part of this missionary team. We wish for you to join us with prayer. We want to walk in our Father´s perfect path.
Our Prayer Requests
