~Phillip's trip to Colombia and Peru~

Thank you for your prayers as we went to VA last weekend for a missionary Service.  God gave us a great weekend with our Dear Friends David and Jamie Spivey.  The only SAD thing was that our Elijah got the stomach virus on Sunday morning. :-(
The stomach virus has been making it's way through our whole family and hit Phillip and I yesterday. :-(

Here's some nice pics from Phillip and Bro. Becker's ministry trip to Colombia and Peru. I obviously wasn't there, so I don't know how much I will be able to explain about each picture. :-)
I do know that God gave them a WONDERFUL trip and souls were saved, edified and encouraged.  PRAISE THE LORD!!!
The Colombian and Peruvian trip was a lot of traveling... Phillip and Bro. Becker tried to spend a couple days at each church in Colombia. Phillip was sick most of the time in Colombia, and got sick in Peru as well. :-(  (In our weakness, HE is made strong!)
I may not have these pics in the correct order, but hey, at least I'm getting them blogged. :-)

~Beautiful!~
~This is a door to one of the tunnels that the Incas would have built.  They had tunnels that went thousands of miles, some of their tunnels went almost all the way to Argentina.~
 ~Phillip met some very dear Peruvian saints.  He was excited to see the open doors there, and all that God is doing.  There is a lot of work to do there.  We need to pray for them.~

 ~A Peruvian lady carrying her baby on her back to church.~
 ~They got to visit the hot tubs in Peru. You could pay $1.00 to get a hot bath, so they did.  It was the FIRST HOT BATH they had had in like 3 weeks.~

 



 ~A lot of time was spent eating and being with the Peruvian people.~

 ~The "indoor plumbing."~
 ~The toilet.~

 ~Bro. Becker, Bryon Fling, and Phillip~
 ~Praying together.~



 ~They had a good service with Jose Chilcon and his congregation.  They served them a yummy meal of fried rice, beans, potatoes with a special cream sauce, and ceviche (raw fish.) ~
 ~Heading to hike to 2 church services that day.  Poor Sis. Michele's knees were getting a work-out.~
~Pastor Dionisio.  He is very crippled, yet He walks all over the mountains to minister for Jesus. ~
 

 ~A neat Peruvian scene.~
 The pastor bought fresh cheese, bread, and hot coffee.  Delish!~

 
 ~Praise God!  Two opportunities to hold 2 services back to back.  God came in the second service.~



 ~This church could hardly contain the people coming in, especially the children.  God helped Phillip preach a good sermon, and he sang a special and Michele sang a special as well.~
 ~Heading to fly back to Lima, Peru.~


 ~Then Phillip and Bro. Becker flew back to Bogota, Colombia and spent the night with Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly, then on Tuesday, Feb. 28th my PHILLIP FLEW BACK TO ME!!!!!~
 ~Dear Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly.~
 ~A fun gift from Pastor Jimmy to our family.  Arequipe is Yummy caramel.  :-) ~

 ~Dear Sis. Fling gave me these fun fingerless gloves from Peru. THANK YOU, Michele.~
HOW WE THANK THE LORD FOR HIS PROTECTION AND HELP TO BRO. BECKER AND PHILLIP AND THE FLINGS ON THIS TRIP!!!
I have lots of fun pics to post from our weekend in VA.  Plus I'm in the middle of several projects that I can't wait to post pics of.  I hope to post the VA pics soon.

Thank you for this WONDERFUL post, Heather. I was very happy to get to see the people, scenery, and the happenings on this missionary trip to South America. I'm sorry that Phillip was sick on so much of the trip. Dear Jimmy and Farly seem so happy to see Phillip. That's nice that they were excited to see him again. Smile. I trust that Jesus will keep these dear South American people encouraged in the Lord because of this endeavor to encourage them, although, I feel that they likely encouraged Phillip and Brother Becker even more than they were. These scenes are so precious to see. Much love, Mom D
