After great effort, we were a little disappointed that we only managed to take 12 people from our area to the adult camp this semester, but that didn’t dampen the joy we felt when four of them put their faith in Jesus at camp.

She said her mom came home so excited that she had to go and find out what happened to her. She was saved that Sunday morning as well.
PRAY FOR OUR FAMILY AND TEAM
Recently Jonathan’s mother, Audrey, was diagnosed with a slow-growing lymphoma. Craig Lingo, the longest-serving member of our team here in Colombia, also received the exact same diagnosis. They both started chemo at the same time and are in need of your prayers.
