Ephesians 6.12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.

Today another child was buried. This is the grave with Joka, the grave digger, on the right and Tomas, the father, sitting above it. Tomas is the man from our post “Chipping Away” who said he wanted me to come and teach their group some time. Pray for them.
This is Ken, a young husband and father who lives across the river. He didn’t attend our teaching, but has been coming to our church meetings. Api has taken it upon himself to meet daily with Ken and his family to walk them through the gospel. We are excited for Ken to hear and thrilled about Api’s enthusiasm–God is clearly doing a mighty work in and through him.

I had a great conversation about the gospel with Terry and some of his family today. From this group, only Terry attended our lessons back in the spring. It’s exciting to see new believers like Terry wanting others to hear the truth they are believing.
Our big river has lots of tributaries. Yesterday the kids got explore one they’ve never seen before.
