Hope you enjoy a special edition of the News in 5 (see video above). We updated the blog a few weeks back, prior to our departure for Colombia. We are now safely back in Colombia and should be heading to Santa Marta by the end of the month.
Our ABWE partners, Jon and Holly Boyd arrived in Santa Marta on February 9th, so please be in prayer as they begin the initial 'scouting and surveying'. All families need to find permanent housing before mid April, so please be praying for that as well.
We also received news regarding Santiago yesterday. The doctor read all of his exams to Alfredo and Juana and kept saying things like, "Wow, wonderful, excellent." By the time she had read the last report she was crying and said, "I don't know how but your son is completely healed of his cancer! Be praying for this woman (she is an agnostic) and Alfredo and Juana have had many opportunities to share Christ with her. Alfredo also found out that her parents live in Santa Marta now, so we will definitely be following up on them as well!
We will send you out another update when we have arrived in Santa Marta in the next few weeks. In the meantime please continue to pray. Satan is presenting much opposition to our departure and we are more certain then ever that God want's us to plant a strong gospel preaching church in the coast!
