I had not planned to write about “the virus”.

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Update from Al during Covid-19

“We are hunkered down for the time being trying to be wise with our health. Finding the balance of staying safe and helping others can be a challenge at times like this. I’m using the time to prepare lessons in Spanish for my next Peru trip that is scheduled for the end of May but that may have to be postponed depending on the two countries involved in transportation options. We pray for the whole situation that God will use this for His glory and then many will come to know Him as Savior.”

Al Lotz & the property for the Shipibo people at Junin Pablo

At the request of the Shipibo people, we got involved with this ministry of teaching. From the beginning, the plan was to start up a school that meets for one week of intensive Bible teaching each quarter of the year for four years. While this is minimal time for a school it is reasonable for the context and resources available to the people.

Al’s August 2019 – Trip to Peru

So I’m sitting on a boat in the river port of Pucallpa waiting for departure on my 6-hour trip upriver to the town and pastor training school in Junin Pablo. It is a cool jungle morning and I’m sweating. You might think it’s a serene quiet morning in reference to this jungle river location but the quiet is shattered with all sorts of loading activity and raucous music (if you can call it that) blaring over the sound system. I try to tame this with headphones and my own music but the result may be going deaf early.
