Two Days at the Borja Fair

Last Thursday and Friday we spent two days at the Fair of Borja. A highlight of the event was meeting and sharing the Gospel with the local veterinary, who has invited us to his farm in El Chaco to talk more about God. God had been preparing this man as he recently visited farms and universities in the US. It was obvious he had met some believers during his trip as he gave testimony of their lives and practices.

 We were privileged to see and taste the biggest cheese in the Valley of Quijos. It took 1,410 liters (375 gallons) of milk to make the cheese, which was later served with a brown sugar syrup to all those who attended. 

 Dan was in his element and reminisced about his childhood when his family showed cattle at the local fair.

Dan has been building relationships with farmers in the area.

 Most breeds were familiar, but there was a breed called Normande that was new to us.

Rene and his wife, Lucia have a fine herd of cows, which the judging later proved true. 

We enjoyed the event very much. It was a God given opportunity to connect with farmers in the area of Borja. Please pray with us for their salvation.

The Greenhouse Project

The Greenhouse Project is a project encouraging the Borja Seniors to work together with a common goal.

The beds are ready to be planted. We continue to plant seeds of God's Word with this group of seniors weekly.
Present is about half of the fifty nine participating seniors, plus one foreigner. 

Anderson came along because he isn't in school yet.
 He needs special education and his parents  haven't enrolled him this year.
On the return trip, some rode...
 and others walked the trail. Won't you join us in praying for those who who are not yet following His trail.

Happy Birthday Martha!
Martha Brunner celebrated 80 years of life on Saturday October 29th in Pifo, Ecuador.  She is an example of dedicated service to the Lord and has been obedient to the Lord's call on her life for 52 years in Ecuador. Her greatest joy is spending time at the Voz Andes Clinic near her home witnessing to those who are in need of medical and spiritual help. Martha has given the Gospel message to thousands and with the help of her supporters has aided hundreds of people of all ages with educational and physical needs.

Happy Birthday Faithful Servant of the Lord !
