Thank you, dear friends, for your prayers. We are doing well. I hope you also are in good health. I apologize for the lateness of the prayer letter. I could not concentrate enough to type it. I left Venezuela on the 21st of December and arrived in the U.S. on the 25th at 1:00 a.m. My trip was not too bad, but it was not easy. I traveled 14 hours in a bus to reach the Venezuelan-Colombian border. I then walked 45 minutes to Colombia on a path, along with others. Thousands of people go back and forth across that path every day. Then I had to walk another path for more than an hour to catch a bus. I took a bus from Cucuta to Pamplona and another from Pamplona to Bogota; that was a 16-hour bus ride. Finally, I took a plane to Houston. Because I could not find a flight to Pensacola, Florida, I rented a car and drove 7 hours to Pensacola. Nobody wanted to hug me—I only took a semi-bath through the whole trip.
The church is doing well. The attendances are low because of COVID-19. A week after my arrival to the U.S., the person I left in charge of the church got into some trouble, so he is not going to be able to help us anymore. Please pray for that.
Please keep praying for Venezuela. Also keep praying for my wife and me regarding returning to Venezuela. Because both the Venezuelan and Colombian borders are closed, we may not be able to get back into either country for some time.
The church had 122 souls saved and 2 baptized during the last 6 months. The church had 759 soul saved and 4 baptized in 2020. Praise the Lord! Amen!
• For health and safety
• For the Lord to supply the monthly support that we need
• For the salvation of the people of Venezuela
