Greetings from sunny Paraguay! Februaryhas been a particularly hot month this
year, but we’ve been enjoying all the photos of the snow in the United States. This month we have learned a lot about the pu
blic transportationsystem (the buses) and walking around town, as our truck is still in the shop. We also continue the legal battle concerning the title, which wedid not know had liens on it. Please keep the resolution of these issues in your prayers. Being without our own vehicle has hampered ournormal ministry schedule a bit, and we look forward to getting the mission-mobile back again. This month, we also wish a happy birthday toSaúl, a vital member of the Tapé Missions team. He is practically a member of the Hagerman family now, having lived with us for the betterpart of a year.
On another note, we have finalized our dates for the visit to the US later this year. We’ll be there for all of October and N
ovember, 2010. Wewould love to reconnect with you to share what has been happening and the vision for continued ministry here.
A Vigilia, a Campaña, and Some Kepis
This month we attended both a vigilia and a campaña. What are those? Well, a
is what we’d call a
revival. It took place on a soccer field beside a playground, in a neighborhood here in Carapeguá
, for three nights.The campa
ña was geared toward attracting the families of the neighborhood, tocome out and hear the Word of God preached. Many children came to hear themusic, stayed for the message, and responded in the altar time.
istechnically a vigil, which is an all-night service of prayer, teaching, preaching, andmusic.
The vigilia was a time of refreshing and refocusing for the church family.We also attended a community-wide Christian concert/event that included a hat
contest, called Night of the Ballcaps (Noche de Kepis). Caroline’s fish hat, Camille’smulticolored cowboy hat, and Ken’s foam pig head all brought home prizes!
