Alangasi

Alangasi is another one of the towns that the volunteers will be coming to see and work in. They will be going there on Friday, June 2. Now, for some pictures and prayer requests. By the way, we posted more pictures of Alangasi on February 25, so you are welcome to check those out. We have found a local Christian church there and plan on working with them. There was a lady that hooked us up with a place to have the kids carnival. We met her mother who became one of the first believers in the area and faced some persecution, especially early on. People piled rocks in front of her shop and threatened to burn her house down. She has a pretty amazing testimony.
Here is a picture of the town square with the Catholic church.
Here is a picture of a mother with her child in a store.
Here is a picture of Luis with his child in a bakery that I got some sweets at.

Here is a picture of the site where the volunteers are going to host the kids festival.

Prayer Requests

I would say in general, the prayer requests mentioned in the last post about Guangopolo would be about the same. Just pray that God's word would be spread, believed and followed. Pray that contacts could be made for home Bible studies that would be started after the volunteers leave. Pray that we will see God's hand move in amazing ways and bring great changes to this town. Other towns the volunteers will be going to will be Yaroqui and La Merced. You all can pray the same things for these areas. I hope to put pictures of these places on soon.
