some new prayer requests and more recent pics

Here's a picture with Dave and Ana in the middle (they run the La Fuente program, he is from England and she is from Ecuador), then there's Samuel and his family to the left (he and his wife are studying at a seminary here and are planning on doing missions in Colombia, Samuel has also helped me in my ministry, they are from Kenya), then there is Jonathan and Elisa (they are both teachers, he is from England and she is from Ecuador). With everyone we have a group that meets for Bible study, a meal and encouragement. We usually meet at Dave and Ana's but everyone came to our house a few weeks ago. Here's Mary and Christine. They are both pregnant and due about the same time.
These guys are impostors...we really don't have pregnant men here in Ecuador like you do back in the US. But we like to have a good time.
Here's a picture of me, David, Marta and their son Joshua. We knew them in our time and Santo Domingo. They have now returned to England and they stayed with us for a couple of days on their way out. Pray for them in their new lives in England.
As I close, I would like to put a couple of prayer requests. The first one is related to a good friend and ministry partner in Santo Domingo. His name is Bernardo and we worked together in our time there last year (you can see pictures of him if you look in the archives in April of 2007.) He's a barber that has a great heart for God and serves Him in some amazing ways. It turns out there is a new church there in Santo Domingo and he is the Pastor of it. This is his first time to pastor. Please pray for him and this new church. Pray that this church would be a lighthouse and a place of peace. Pray that it will be a place of outreach and discipleship. The other prayer request is for a strategy conference the mission will be having at the end of the month. I plan on going with 2 or 3 guys from here and I also invited the guys from Santo Domingo. Please pray that this would be a blessed time and that we could learn and put in practice what we will be learning. Guess this is all for now. Take care and God bless.
Psalm 17:7-"I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness and will sing to the name of the Lord Most High." I just read this verse yesterday and wanted to share it with you all.
