Argentina, Howard Hicks
Wanted to give you a quick update of some upcoming things to be praying for. This weekend some of us are headed to a church retreat Saturday and Sunday in Pisac. This is a church we have been attending called El Refugio. We look forward to getting to know some of the people more in the church and also be able to share with some about the ministry with "Jovenes Con Proposito". Plus nice to get out of the city and down to the Sacred Valley. Then the following weekend on Sunday Dec.4 we will have a meeting for our organization to work on some plans for next year. Please pray that we will be alert to God's leading in our plans and also that we will take steps of faith as we seek to follow all He has in store for the coming year. The year is coming to an end quickly and it has been amazing to see how various unexpected doors have opened. Now being patient and also trying to work hard on moving forward with some goals. I will be in Cusco until Dec.17 when I will head to Argentina for a few weeks for the holidays to visit with people there and have a nice break. Looking forward to the summer weather there. Then back to Cusco Jan.12 for a couple weeks before heading back to the US. These couple weeks will be hopefully for putting a few things in to motion before I leave for several months. Thanks so much for your prayers, words of encouragement, and financial support. Please let me know if you would like to support in any way in the year to come or even a year end donation. I would love to see some of you come down next year anytime after late July. You will love Peru and especially the people and also be able to use your talents that God has given you to share with the youth here. Plus English is a great help as many are desiring to improve their English for better opportunities.
Happy New Year Friends and Family,
Hope you all had a nice Christmas and New Year and are off to a great start to a new year. Looking forward to seeing all God has in store for this new year.
Wanted to give a quick update. We returned from South America the end of last year and had a great time and built many new relationships. I hope you were able to read the blog that Jessica put together while we were traveling. If not it is www.hicksinsam.blogspot.com
Each year gives us more and more vision and excitement to see where God desires for us to spend our time and resources. So Howard is taking a preliminary trip to South America in March to check out some of the things we are looking at being involved in when we plan to return in mid July for another 6 months. Please keep us in your prayers as we seek out where God desires us to be involved in Peru and also Argentina in 2015.
Jessica is back working at St Joseph's Hospital in the pharmacy department and Howard continues working on travel arrangements for many mission trips and also personal trips for people. We are also involved with some ministry opportunities while in AZ. Please remember to contact Howard whenever you have any travel especially international, or cruises or even hotel stays. Each of these pay travel agents commission which helps us with monies for our ministry as we serve in South America. Every little bit helps. It is great having technology to work almost anywhere we travel now. Please email Howard at Howard@MissionTravel.org.
Also in February we have the opportunity to spend some time with some of the people from Zona Zegura from Cusco Peru as they will be visiting the US again this year. So many amazing things.
May you all have a great 2015 and sure hope you all have a chance to travel and serve in different parts of the world. There is so much need all around and it is so exciting to be used by God. Thanks for all your prayers and support. In April we will update you on where we see God leading us for our next extended time in Peru and Argentina.
Dios les bendiga!
Howard and Jessica
