Thursdays

Every Thursday we do Bible study in the village of Muyurco.  We have been going there weekly for almost a year now.  It is one of the highlights of my week.  It takes us about an hour to drive there and then we hike for about 15 minutes or so to reach the house where we meet.  The family that hosts us is just precious.  They welcome us each week with the brightest smiles and warmest hugs.  We usually all gather around outside sitting on plastic stools under a shade tree.  Most weeks our music is sung without instruments.  David teaches a new Bible story each week and often times reviews stories from the weeks past.  We spend time in prayer and then fellowship before making the return trip home.  It's very simple and I think that is what I like most about it.

I don't always take pictures each week but I did snap a few while there last Thursday. 

Most every week the kids are waiting for us by the creek where we leave our car and hike back with us to their house.  Here are David, Ben, and two of the boys on the trail last week.

This past week the boy in the pink shirt led us in several choruses.  It was PRECIOUS!  He is nine years old.  Oh what a blessing that was to my heart!

isn't he a cutie!

There are three villages in this area that we are targeting- Nearar, Porto Suelo, and Muyurco.  We do Bible study in Nearar on Sunday and Muyurco on Thursday.  The people from Porto Suelo come to one or both of those study times.  From time to time they will all plan one big service together.  This coming Sunday is one of those days.  They will all be gathering in the village of Muyurco for a Sunday morning service.  Would you pray for this upcoming service?  Pray for the ones that will be leading and for the hearts of those there to receive it well.  

The next few days are going to be busy ones.  David is out visiting with Miguel today.  We have Bible study in Muyurco on Thursday.  We will lead Bible study in Lagunetas on Saturday.  We will be back in Muyurco Sunday morning for the above mentioned service and then have a team arriving Sunday afternoon.  Pray for extra strength and energy for us over the next week.  Pray also that the love of Christ would shine brightly through us to every person we see.  Our prayer most of all is that our lives would point others to Him.  Would you pray that for us as well?
