Wow, time seems to be flying by us. We have already finished our first week in our second location. It is as cold as ever, but the Holy Spirit’s fire keeps us warm at night (wow, that’s deep)….

The Concepcion corps is a very traditional corps, but the people are just as welcoming as the Hualpencillo corps. We have spent the majority of the week with the officers, Majors Carlos and Patricia Aguilar. They are new officers to the corps; arriving to the appointment from Peru just weeks before the earthquake happened. Still, they’re mission has not wavered. We were driven several times throughout the week to the devastated town of Dichato to work in the school, and meet with a women’s group. It takes about an hour of bumpy, curly roads to find this community. We have given several “hora de gozo’s” (or hour of joy) to the local school. The kids have been amazing and so tentative, listening to us assure them of God’s love for them. Other opportunities have been playing a pick up game of soccer with kids. The area around them is terrible, but the kids have still found a way to keep being children.

While in Dichato Thursday, we met with a women’s knitting group (which all of us enjoyed, considering we have been learning). We performed our choredrama for them, and it was amazing the outcome. Major Aguilar spoke a few words after our performance. When he made an invitation for the accepting of Christ as ruler over their lives, seven women raised their hands! Major asked each of us to pray over them. The Spirit of the Lord was truly working in that room. The picture included was taken on the beach of Dichato, one thing the community can have unwavering pride for their community.

As a team, we have felt this week has been one of our most instantly productive weeks. Don’t get us wrong, the past three weeks were wonderful outreach, but the fruit from it will probably not be seen while we are here. Where as our work this week, and the next two weeks, have a bit more fruit that we can see now.

We have also had the great chance to simply hand out War Cry’s. (For non-army readers this is literature produced by The Salvation Army.) We have found ourselves standing in the middle of the city handing them out. As in the States, some avoid all eye contact, for fear of being caught to talk, yet others have given us conversations and even chances of attending the corps. This activity has definitely been a highlight for us.

As usual, we request prayer. This week we would like to specifically ask that you keep the officers of the Concepcion corps lifted up. They are far from their home and family. Their spirits are sweet, and we pray that their spirits would infiltrate the city of Concepcion, so that it may be a city on a hill…..
