We celebrated the Independence Day of Peru (the 28th of July). Our church held a patriotic service. It consisted of more specific time in prayer for Peru and the authorities. We challenge the church to take responsibility in the city of being the light in the dark world spiritually. We extended the service to include competitions with two teams (red and white). They decorated themselves and the building. The history of Peru was presented along with the significance of the flag and its logo. Once again many of the church members were actively involved in helping put this together.

The church organised a surprise party for Pastor Samuel at his house. Nisha made the cake, Jon organised the games and program, and everyone contributed for gifts and snacks.
Another wedding from those in our church. Praise the Lord for this couple seeking God's Will in Marriage and other aspects of their lives. Please pray for them as they make changes to bring Glory to the Saviour.
Nisha and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary on July 15th in Huancayo, Peru. They have just opened a LongHorn steakhouse restaurant in our city just in time for us to enjoy some time together. We thank God for the wonderful years that he has given us together. We have now known each other longer than when we were without each other growing up. We dated for three years and she got married when she was 24 years old.
