Anita and Genesis took a trip to the Galapagos Islands. This trip was a special gift for Genesis for completing elementary school, as well as for Anita for completing her master’s degree. Also, Bethlehem graduated from pre-Kindergarten and was very excited.
We received sad news this month as Joselito's sister in law, Becky, was diagnosed with chronic renal insufficiency. She is now taking dialysis and will eventually need a kidney transplant. Also this month, Anita's mother was diagnosed with brain cancer. She is now completing physical and occupational therapy.
- Joselito taught an intensive course on the Introduction of Theology at the Ecuadorian Baptist Theological Seminary. We are progressivenly expanding the scope of this ministry.
- Joselito preached three sermons about Biblical Stewardship at our home church.
- Anita continues visiting the women’s prison each Wednesday and teaches the Bible there.
- We are teaching the New Testament at the new Baptist mission every Thursday night using the New Testament in audio (Quichua and Spanish). We also had a baby shower for some members, as well as holding an additional organizational meeting in our home.
- We have continued to have several meetings with the ministry board of our home church as Joselito helps them transition to a more biblical governing structure.
Joselito also taught a special parenting conference at our home church.
- We went to Santo Domingo (90 miles from Quito) to vote.
- Anita went to the Guayaquil to visit her mother during her hospitalization for brain cancer.
- We hosted our partner and ministry mentor, Dr. David Sills, to plan future theological education projects.
- For the Anita’s mother as she is very sick.
