Después de más de cinco años en EEUU estamos volviendo a Perú el 30 de julio. Estaremos en Lima por dos semana, luego iremos a Santa María, donde estaremos trabajando la construcción de la casa y ministrando el evangelio a la vez. Chaska está contenta porque va a tener un perro. Apreciamos sus oraciones. Gracias.

August 2009

In late July, Augusto went to Guatemala. The L.E.I. (Literacy and Evangelism) team with members from the U.S., Peru, Mexico, and Thailand, trained 11 literacy teachers, mostly young people.

Literacy and Evangelism Int'l.

YES! After attending the International Literacy Training Institute in Ica, Peru in April 2008 and the L.E.I. Orientation in Tulsa in July 2008, Augusto and I are now OFFICIALLY LITERACY COORDINATORS for L.E.I. (Literacy and Evangelism International). We will be working primarily in Latin America, although we also have some interest and contacts in Kenya.

L.E.I. Orientation

We arrived in Tulsa on Sunday, July 13, after 36 hours on the bus. Our time in the Orientation here has been very fruitful. We have met new friends from Brazil, Ghana, India, Laos, and from the U.S. and have learned about the privileges and responsibilities of becoming members of Literacy and Evangelism International. One thing we especially like about L.E.I. is the emphasis on maintaining a vital personal relationship with God day after day. Having been involved with this organization for over seven years, we have finally applied for formal membership. This is a process and we expect to hear from them in about a month. Petition: Favor with the personnel committee of L.E.I.

From here we go on to Trinidad, Colorado and then on to Tyler, Texas, returning around August 12 to California. Petition: Safety in our travels and effective sharing with individuals and churches.

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. In Christ, Augusto, Carolyn, and Chaska
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:1-3

International Literacy Training Institute

The ILTI (International Literacy Training Institute) in Ica, Peru was very productive. We stayed in a Pardise with fresh fruit growing on trees all around us. Fifteen literacy coordinators were trained, including Augusto and Carolyn, but the most impressive part was having six highly qualified Aguarunas (three Bible translators) together, preparing the primer in their own language the last two weeks. We found that Augusto’s trip to Amazonas was timed precisely to bring Riquilda, and her father, Tomás Dati, to help us. Four other Aguarunas attended as well. The first two weeks two Quechua brothers from the North received training in how to prepare teachers to use their primer, prepared just last year. Spanish-speakers came from Iquitos and other jungle parts of Peru. Trainers and consultants came from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and from within Peru.

Jesus said, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal. John 4:35-36


At the elementary school in Santa Maria, Augusto’s hometown, 43 children watch the Jesus Film on April 2, 2007. We hope to go back from time to time to show other Christian children’s films. We pray God will give saving faith to these and other children in the Valle del Mantaro.
