We arrived safely yesterday at our destination in Santiago, Chile yesterday afternoon at about 2:30pm. There was little time to rest and refresh before work began. Fanta and myself had a quick walk and a bite of lunch before our first meeting. We had a meeting with several mission partners and about the importance of equipping missionaries and how as organisations can support each other. Then we met with the South American Bishops. After dinner it was an early to bed night to catch up on some sleep.
Thankfully I slept really well. This morning after breakfast we had a time of worship. The bible reading was lead by the world renowned Mission Theologian Andrew Kirk.
As we were eating our lunch we felt the tremor of the earthquake which hit Cuicio today. Thankfully no damage was in this area and within minutes life was back to normal. Cuicio is about 200km south of Santiago.
Fanta and myself had a lovely walk and cup of coffee after lunch with Bishop Greg Venables. He is such a Godly man and truly loves the Lord Jesus.
This afternoon we are in more discipleship meetings and then tomorrow morning we are meeting with the Bishops again.
Please pray for:
- Our continued safety
- Continued Health
- The progress in these meetings
- The Bishops meetings
- For the unofficial conversations
