There's Nothing Better than Serving Together

We’ve been having such a variety of experiences in the past few days. The group finished the work project. The radio station's new paint job looks like a million bucks and we have a complete sidewalk (which was started in 2005 by our first CMA team!)

We dedicated two bikes yesterday and had some great time of fellowship

with our new friends in Obligado and Bella Vista.

Today we were able to tour the “Pajarito” (Little Bird) yerba mate tea factory, visit the local co-op and the Jesuit ruins in Trinidad. The highlight of the day was sharing with CMA Paraguay chapter for a delicious steak dinner, singing and jam session!

Tomorrow we head to the Iguazu Falls and Itaipu hydroelectric power plant. Saturday is already fast approaching and it will be time to go home.

We are so grateful for all the love and sacrifice you’ve given to us here in the heart of South America. We love you and will continue to pray for you, dear friends. Muchas Gracias!

Tonight we have a big service to dedicate a motorcycle in Bella Vista, so more photos to come!

He and his family are delighted with this great ministry tool.

On Monday we went to the ACHE Indian community and saw how the motorcycle is being used. We heard missionary Bjarne Fostervold share how they went into the woods to try and make contact with the Ache in the 70s. It was a tedious task, but they finally captured their hearts and now, 32 years later, Bjarne and his family are still living and serving the Ache. W toured the village and we prayed with a sick woman and the children sang us songs.

We met the chief’s wife, Juliana, (pictured with me) who’s life was saved by the grace of God. She is a woman full of joy and it's always a blessin…
