When our summer interns, Ryan and Angie were here, as well as the team from their church, they were able to visit Potrero de Uriburu with Joe. They showed a movie in the local school, and took a few toys for the kids there. A few weeks ago Joe was able to go back with a local pastor. This pastor already knew some people there which helped Joe to have a connection. The week after, he returned to have his first bible study and with adults
and kids, around 15 attended.
The brick house in the background is where they live and where we held the study.
We are trying to take advantage of the next month or so in going to this place because once summer/ rainy season hits, it will be impossible to go there because the river bed we cross will go from dry to raging river. In total we've gone for about a month and a half. The people are open and have interest in learning more.
There's one man, Ernesto (in the picture above), who said he's interested in being trained so he can teach and train others! We're amazed by this because it's very uncommon here! Please be praying for Potrero de Uriburu and the people there.
