Sudden change of plans for Becky and Miguel (July)

Miguel and Abby

Becky and Abby

Becky and Miguel (and of course, Abigail) were supposed to move to Andahuaylas at the end of July so he could be youth pastor in the IEP church here.

HOWEVER...
The church here tore down their main building to rebuild a bigger facility.

AND...
They found out that they had to make a new foundation, because the old one wasn't adequate.  This was a lot more costly than they thought.

What used to be the worship area of the Andahuaylas church
There's an old joke that if anything goes wrong in a church, you fire the youth pastor.  On the very day that they were going to sell their furniture for the move, an elder called me to say "tell Pastor Miguel not to come because we don't have anything to pay him."

And after some urgent rushing around that's what happened.  Miguel was able to get back his job as religion teacher in a school in Lima (he had already resigned, but hadn't been replaced.)

NEW PLAN
They are going to work on getting his visa and green card so they can come to the US and recruit supporters for their planned ministry with Believers Bridge.
