MOYOBAMBA PERU—I think if I said that Amy and I have fallen in love with Moyobamba, the Clinica San Lucas, and the people we have been so privileged to meet I would still be understating just how privileged we feel to be here.
Our work at the clinic certainly keeps us busy. This past week Amy and I had the opportunity to visit a couple of local clinics to observe and assist. It was most definitely a learning experience.
All the healthcare workers have been so patient with my Spanish as they explain the situation with the patient, and then usually explain it again. The patients have also been so patient as I try to communicate that I need their arm for a blood pressure, or that I need to stick the thermometer under their armpit.
Outside of the clinic, our host family has seen to it that we are being exposed to all that the area has to offer.

New ministry development
Most of us have never met someone who openly states they are willing to die for their commitment to Jesus Christ.
Recently, I was at a conference with Christian health professionals who are willing to do that in one of the most difficult areas of the world — the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa.
Nearly 400 of these dedicated Christians met in the Sahara Desert in an undisclosed location (for security reasons) to mentor and encourage one another on how to bring light to this spiritually dark region of the world. They shared strategies on how to share the Gospel in the workplace within Muslim cultures that are intolerant to Christianity. Several attendees expressed guilt for not yet being ready to give up their life or career for Christ, but came to the conference seeking tools and assurance to attain that level of commitment.
