On the River Again! - Tommy
I visited in several communities on the Rio Cocco river this month from the 10th through the 15th. We set up one day medical clinics, taught Bible classes and held worship services each evening. I was given the opportunity to preach one night and we had so many people in the building that one of the brothers told me to hurry up because he was afraid that the building was going to fall down!
I was encouraged to see many of the folks who were baptised during our last trip still attending services and being active in the congregation at San Andres. Every trip on the Rio Cocco is a chance for us to build relationships and share the gospel of Jesus Christ in both word and deed.
It is always exciting but also physically challenging to make these trips as conditions are very primitive in the villages of the river (no electricity, no running water, outhouses, very hot, humid, rain, mud, etc.) but it is always a very rewarding time!
