Anniversaries are widely celebrated in Peru. The church has celebrated their fifth year in Andahuaylas. What a blessing to see what God has done these past years. The church is averaging 140 people every Sunday. A little over 80 active members are in the church which has a variety of ministries (Nursery, children's classes, youth group, single adults group, married group, private christian school, Bible institute, and more). Continue to pray for the Abundant Life Baptist Church in Andahuaylas.

The church baptisms create an opportunity for a picnic fellowship at the river. Jon provides many games for the people to participate in. Again, volleyball and soccer are crowd favorites. Not too many were familiar enough to play badminton, American football and baseball. Other games were made available as well but most just enjoyed the time of fellowship.
Jon thought that he would never be asked again to do games for a wedding reception since what he made for the last one was a big wooden cow for a milking contest. The couple that we had been counseling not only asked Jon to provide the entertainment for their reception but asked if Nisha would make their wedding cake. Jon ended up making a hippo, ball tossing game as well as other games.
