Going Forward in Río Indio
As we wrote in our October update, we were looking forward to a visit from Halston Duke. Once he arrived, he and Clip went to Río Indio in order to re-wire a house that belongs to the church there. Thankfully, the work was finished in 2 days. The work done was greatly needed, and it helped to strengthen the relationship we are building with the pastors and other believers in that area. We’re not surprised that the Lord blessed his trip! It’s incredible how the Lord uses our abilities for His glory, our good, and the good of others when we’re willing to serve Him.
Additionally, we worked with Erik Mora, the pastor we wrote about last month. As a reminder, Erik and his family desire to move to an area called Bocas del Toro as missionaries, and we are working to help mobilize them. Erik and his family have the support of the senior pastor, Amado, the church, and the association. The next step is for Kenny Morris (our missionary friend) and Clip to sit down with the church to do what we can to make their going a reality. (That meeting will happen soon.)

Update from Iglesia de La Gracia
Clip was able to teach and preach at Iglesia de La Gracia in La Chorrera for the month of October. He spent a lot of time teaching on our purpose, the gospel, justification, sanctification, and the fruit of the gospel.
