We have just finished a fabulous week with a group from Enon Baptist in Easley, SC. They were a hard working group that worked in the town of Cot for the week! They were able to paint the outside of the library where Francisco holds church. They also held kids clubs with a great turn out of an average of 30 kids. And some of the kids that they shared with even showed back up for church on Sunday!! It was so exciting. Here is their picture!!
And for those of you keeping up with the jalapeno eating contest….. The last team to come through was the Enon team! So they had 4 contestants trying to beat the old record!!! Well, their pastor, Scott Willis is the official winner for the summer contest!!! He blew all other contestants out of the water!! His official count was 42 jalapeno slices with the closest other contestant eating 34!!! Way to go Scott!! You are the official winner and have bragging rights until next year!!! LOL!!!
Please keep the prayers coming for my health and the mission going on here on the Irazu volcano! The new Sunday morning Bible study going on in Cipreses has been so encouraging and all the new believers there are so eager to take in every word taught from the Bible!! God’s work has been amazing this summer and we are praising the Lord for all of the teams that have come to work on the volcano!!! God used each team member tremendously and He continues to bring fruit from your labors here!! I am sick for the first time with a cold here in Costa Rica. God has been good to have provided some Zyrtec here to help me with this. Please pray that this does not turn into an infection. Also, I have had a bit of a flair up, but each day I am improving – Praise the Lord!! He is so good! Living on the missionfield with dermatomyositis has been such a time for me to grow in His grace and love. It continues to draw me closer to Him. All praises to Him who created us all and who continues to work in each of our lives for His glory alone!!
