The James Family
Greetings from Cleveland!
Debbie and I have had a wonderful Home Assignment in Ohio. Since Christmas, it has been especially nice to have our whole family together–something we do not get to enjoy very often living on different continents!
Debbie and I look forward to returning to Bolivia shortly. Before that happens, however, I’ll be spending a month (Feb 11-March 15) in Egypt and several countries in N Africa visiting a church-planter training ministry that Parkside Church supports. Please pray for my time with the African church leaders, and specifically that the Lord will allow me to encourage these believers seeking to impact this important region with the gospel. After I return to Cleveland on March 15, Debbie and I will fly to La Paz the following weekend.
Please pray for our church in Bolivia. Pray especially for Mary Eliza, one of our ILC church members, who last week lost another child to Covid (three of her children now!!). Pray for her and for all whose lives have been impacted the past year by this sickness. Since it is again on the rise in Bolivia, the ILC church leaders decided to return to virtual meetings. Pray for wisdom for Debbie and me, as we return to Bolivia that we will be able to encourage believers and the church there. Pray also for the ESI groups meeting in 15 countries, that believers will be strengthened and encouraged in Christ as they study Romans, the Pastoral Epistles and Acts.
We are thankful to the Lord for you and for your faithful partnership with us in the gospel, and for your prayers,
Kep and Debbie
