Our November Scalpel Team ... joy on their faces!

There was much rejoicing at the success of the medical operations
as our team and the medical staff of the hospital worked
together. In the next few months, we will follow up with
each of these patients … pursuing the healing of what was
repaired and pursuing the opportunity to share the hope of
life offered in following Jesus.

Dear family and friends

The 31st of July, our departure date, is fast approaching. God has called us to this new venture for the kingdom, and we are eager to go and begin the work. Initiating new aspects of ministry influence is part of how the Lord has chosen to orient our life.

This past Sunday evening, Laurie and I presented a skit to our church, Jubilee, to help them visualize the hats we will wear in this new role with Scalpel At The Cross in Peru. It was humorous and yet sobering as we put back on the hat of language and culture learning for this new context.
