Back in Nauta!

    We are all safely back in Nauta. Our stay in the river village called Bagazan was a day longer than we had anticipated. The Real Life team met us there and we were able to celebrate the 4th of July with them. We had a BBQ and played volleyball and soccer with the people there. The Lord really blessed our ministry in Bagazan. We were a part of church services several times where the students really stepped up and got out of their comfort zones. Severin taught many of the children to make rope bracelets and they loved it! Katie was amazing with the children, she was constantly playing games and loving on them. Ty brought all of his duct tape and gorilla tape and it was very useful, we were very thankful for it! Luke and Jon both preached at two church services with our translator, Naneth, they did very well. Stephanie, Emily, Kyle, and Mary Beth all shared their testimony during the church services. Bess, Jheri, and Kyle went to the school and sang for the children and invited them to our VBS. Our other translator, Cesar, Jon, Stephanie, Bess, and Aaron helped to lead a young lady to the Lord!! Ben has constantly blessed us with his heart to serve. He has been a great help to us! One night while we were out in the square in Bagazan a man who had formerly not wanted to come to church came to our worship circle we were having by the playground. He accepted the Lord that night and with tears in his eyes, gave his heart to Jesus! Our boat trip back took all day because our motor broke and we had to make a pit stop at another village after a man with his boat towed us to it. We were able to get another motor and continue our trip back to Nauta. We saw the most incredible sunset on the river that night. Everyone is thankful and praising the Lord for what He is doing in Bagazan and in Nauta.
Serving Him,
