Thank you for praying with us over these past two weeks. They have been very exciting and also concerning. Two weeks ago we started with a armed strike throughout our state by one of the Guerrilla groups. It was only supposed to last the weekend and while the weekend was quiet the Monday after when it was supposed to stop, it actually started without a ceasefire. Fighting broke out between armed groups in areas where the team operates. On Wednesday of that week it had calm down in all but two areas that still remain very tense. These areas are far from us and do not affect us but there are people that are in need there that we serve with our teams. As things calm down we give thanks to God and in talking with the Colombians learned a little bit of what they used to go through up until a few years ago on a daily basis. We rejoice that there is now more stability in peace than there was two weeks ago. Shortly after that we learned of and 18 month old who was traveling with his family that succumbed to hypothermia while climbing through the high mountain areas between shelters. That has led to a lot of awareness throughout Colombia of the plight of the Venezuelan caminantes. Karen, the boys, and I want to say thank you on behalf of everyone who is making this hard journey. Because all of your support and prayers socks hats and gloves have helped to keep so many people warm and safer as they make the hard trek to their destination. Please continue to pray with us and for us as we serve here in cucuta Colombia and share the gospel through our work with Samaritan's Purse and First Baptist of Cucuta.
