Dear faithful readers. 
Sorry it has been so long since our last post.  The internet in Ixiamas has been down for over a week, and who knows when it will be back up.  Rachel, Mateo and I came to Rurre last night to meet the team from Christ Community Church, hence we have internet for the day.

We are continualy learning so much about Bolivian life, ourselves, each other, and ways in which the Lord works. 

There have been times when we wanted more work to do, but God is teaching us to instead give love (and to recieve Love).  We are learning to be good recievers…of the lessons learned, and the ways in which the kids love us and most importantly recievers of God´s love.

We celebrated the birthday of Ixiamas by taking some of the kids to the parade in town.  It was a good time and everyone was in high spirits because school was cancelled for 3 days. 

We are all excited to see the group from Columbus today.  Our Spanish is improving, but it will be fun to communicate without haveing to ¨listen¨so hard.  Continue to pray that God will reveal himself to us and we can see the ways in which we can best serve him and be apart of his will in Ixiamas.
