New Car, 1st Fuego Urbano Meeting, & Skatepark

Hey Everyone,
It's been a pretty busy week and a half or so down here in Chile and I wanted to give you all a head's up on things before they got away from me. We moved into our new house on Nov 1 which you've seen pictures of, but we also got a car last week which was a huge blessing and relief. It has given us mobility and opened up so many doors to get things done and to open up doors to ministry. We got a Hyunadai Santamo which fits 7 comfortably but doesn't use as much gas as other bigger cars. Here's a picture of it and there's more on the Fuego Urbano Facebook page.  Thanks so much!!
After moving in last week we also had our first Fuego Urbano meeting/service at our house this past Saturday and it went awesome. There were only 8 of us but it went really well and everyone was really excited about the vision. I taught on the Parable of the Pharisee & The Tax-Collector, and we used that to talk about what we hope the attitude, heart, and mentality of Fuego Urbano will be. We also know lots of people who are really excited to come but could not make it last Saturday for various reasons, so we expect that we'll see more people this weekend. There are more pictures of our first night on the Fuego Urbano Facebook page, but the picture below gives you glimpse of the night...

Lastly, we also went to the local skatepark yesterday and began part of our outreach work there. It was super fun and God really blessed us because we met lots of the best skaters there and instead of them being closed off or unfriendly to outsiders, we hit it off and got to talk and share with them for a couple hours. It was awesome! Please pray God would keep opening the doors for us there and that He would show us the best way to reach this young people and also help to incorporate them into Fuego Urbano, since the skatepark is a little further away from the side of town we're on. Still, it was a great day and great beginning to the ministry we hope to do there. Below is a picture from our day there but as usual, if you want to see more you can see them on the Fuego Urbano Facebook page...
 Thanks again for all your help, prayers, and support! We could not do this without you all...Blessings from all of us to all of you!
