We are having a great two weeks in Venezuela. The first week was spent teaching at the Wesley Seminary and preaching, conducting a critical conference for the United Methodist Church of Venezuela as it wrestles with the writing and editing of a Discipline, planning construction steps for the orphanage and seminary and church at Lugar Altissimo.

This week we are traveling to Maracay where Warren taught last night, Colonia Tovar for a day of R&R and then to Punto Fijo for a 3 night crusade and a one day pastor's seminar. Traveling together are Doug and Kathleen Crosby, Efrain and Bethsaida Morales and Warren and Jane Lathem along with our Venezuelan friends and drivers, Samuel Rojas, Adolpho Moron and Gustavo Moron.

Doug is the founder of Flying Photos in Atlanta and he rented a plane and made the photo you see here. The church is the tiny red dot at the bottom of the picture and this is the future site of the Wesley Seminary. Efrain and Bethsaida Morales are students in the seminary, pastors of the Ondas de Paz UMC and parents of the Lathem's daughter-in-law, Lim.

Please pray for the rest of this trip. By the way, several persons have been converted and several pastors have professed renewed faith. Keep praying. More later...
