Thanks for staying up to date with us! (click here to see the full prayer letter with pictures: 08-11 vance prayer letter)
Dear Pastor, Partners and Praying Friends,
It’s hard to believe we’ve already been on deputation for about 4 months now. We have had wonderful meetings in GA, TN, FL, SC, AL, TX, LA and NC since our last prayer letter and have now driven a total of over 16,000 miles. We’re thankful for a couple of new supporters and the interest many others have had in partnering with us soon in order to reach Colombia. We’re now at around 13% of our needed monthly ministry and personal support. Please pray that the rest comes in quickly so we can get to Colombia soon!
This summer we were able to assist in our home church’s Teen Camp and Vacation Bible School. It was wonderful to spend time with these young people and make an impact on their lives. Both Aubrie and I were able to lead several to the Lord at these events. Over 40 were saved total at VBS and several at the camp. Praise HIS name!
I want to thank Hill and Son Tire for giving us a great deal on 4 (much-needed) used tires this month. What a blessing! It’s been amazing seeing how God has provided for our needs from day to day. He is faithful.
Out Of The Mouth Of Babes
The other day while I was holding Amira, I picked up my pen and put it back in my pocket. She looked up at me and with the sweetest voice told me, “Good girl!” Hmmm… It’s amazing how our 17 month old is growing and learning. Check out our blog (bemagnified.org) for a video of some of her latest words and sounds. It’s hilarious (my favorite is her elephant impression!).
Colombian Culture Corner
OK, Spanish lesson time. The word for flour is harina (ah-REE-nah). But don’t get this mixed up with arena (ah-RAY-nah) or araña (ah-RAHN-ya). Those mean sand and spider, respectively. Yummy. Spider tortillas, anybody?
1. For our travels as we present our ministry in many churches
2. For our financial support to continue to increase
3. For Colombia’s local elections coming up in October (at least 29 candidates have been assassinated this year alone!)
4. For more laborers to take the Gospel to Colombia!
For Christ and His Glory,
Aaron Aubrie and Amira Vance
