Our last week

We will be leaving for the states in one week.  It is hard to leave, yet we are looking forward to seeing family and friends in the states.  The church is in good hands under the leadership of Paul Ramirez (my assistant).  He is a good preacher, loves the Lord and loves the people.  He is understandably nervous of leading the work alone, but I am sure he will do just fine.

The building is still going up, and we are working hard out there every day.  I am spending a lot of evenings out there to guard the water tank and other building materials from being stolen by thieves.   We cannot leave these things out there without a guard.  We do live in a society where there is a lot of thievery.

The neighbor family of the church had their horse stolen while I was guarding the church one night last week.  The week before that, someone stole the large pot the lady uses to cook food in that she sells in the streets.  The horse is used by her husband to go up into the mountain area where he has a small garden, and makes charcoal.  The thieves are out, and busy in their wicked profession every night, so we must be vigilant also.

I will try to get some more pictures up of the new church building before I leave, but I am really busy right now, and will stay busy until we leave.  There is just so much to do to prepare for our departure.  Please keep us all in your prayers this week.

Your friend and servant for Christ,

Roger Jewell
