Hi there,it's me again!

The Forbess Family

Oh, how I love my daddy!

Aren't they cute?

Jonathan and Rachel Sandoval

Hi! It's Katie again! Jeff has been very busy with English classes and work. He left yesterday to attend his sister's wedding and visit a the church in Chillicothe and Hamiliton, MO.

We are all doing great! Malakai has started walking and just takes off. He knows what he wants and it's afraid to share his opinions. Jubilee continues to be a fabulous big sister. She is on break for two weeks, which means they are planning more at school and there are a lot less kids.

Our families are doing well and have big plans for the 4th of July. The Forbess family will be celebrating the marriage of Melissa and Chris. The Labowski family along with extended family and friends will be celebrating the 4th of July in Hot Springs Village. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the end of the year. We don't have dates yet but will share as soon as we do.

The church here is growing and it's exciting to see both numerical and spiritual maturity. We have had interns, Jonathan and Rachel Sandoval for the past six weeks and it has been great. They are doing a lot with the youth and working with Jeff on the English classes as well as other things.

As we continue to pray thanksgiving for all of our supporters, family and friends, please continue to pray for:

- the Bull family on furlough and their pregnancy
- the Marcum family and their health during the winter season
- the Sandoval family and the health of their extended family
- the people who are sick with flu and colds here in Bolivia during the winter season
- the growth of the congregation here
- the youth group retreat next week
- the upcoming 3rd annual ladies tea here in Cochabamba on July 18th
- the people who are attending classes at the Contact Center, the marriage seminar that is happening once a month for six months and has completed two classes, the English classes and the CAFE small groups
- the plans for having our own church building in Cochabamba and the fund-raising involved

We love you and thank God for you!
