We thank you for persevering in prayer for our family and the ministry here in Tacna. In Acts 8, we read of Phillip being led of the Lord to go and witness to the Ethiopian eunuch who was traveling through the desert. When Phillip asks the man if he understands what he is reading, the eunuch replies, “How can I, except some man should guide me?” May God help us to keep learning from His Word so that we might be prepared to guide people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
The first week of August the ladies had a great time of teaching and fellowship with 80 ladies coming from 5 churches in our city and from Arica, Chile. The Lord greatly used the speakers, and 2 women trusted Christ as Savior. Thank you for praying for this meeting.
August 23-24, we had a time of training in personal evangelism. A good group of people came out for this training including many teens. We rejoice in the new generation of young people that God is raising up to serve Him. We continue to visit and share the Gospel with the families of our teens and appreciate your prayers for their salvation. September 7, we are organizing a youth meeting for the 5 churches that we work with. Please pray for Pastor Alan Vega as he comes from Moquegua to preach for this special event.
What a blessing to see a young couple in the church accept Christ as Savior this month! They have a desire to learn more, and we have begun discipleship with them. Another lady for whom we have been praying for years has finally decided to get her life right with God. Our daughter Lydia, who is 7, trusted Christ as Savior. Another couple in our church who have been living together, got married. We praise the Lord for the way He is working in lives here!
Many times while buying plane tickets online we have seen the price go up during the buying process. Never have we seen the message we did this time: “The price has gone down. (several hundred dollars) Would you still like to purchase?” We had been praying specifically to be able to purchase our furlough tickets at a certain price and for those flight times to be convenient ones for traveling with small children. God worked in a specific way that left us marveling in His goodness to us and thanking Him for answered prayer. Thank you to those who have prayed and given towards our tickets! We have been able to schedule about half our furlough meetings. If you would like to schedule a time for us to come by your church (January-May 2020) please contact us at email@example.com or 330-238-4944. We appreciate your prayers as we look for a van to use during this time as well.
We so appreciate your prayers for our family.
Serving the Lord with gladness,
Robert & Sara Stover and Family
