Jim and Melody Bjur praise the Lord for traveling mercies to the annual Presbytery meetings in the south of Chile, and for the blessing of seeing friends there.  Praise the Lord for new families and children in the Arica church, and for the 30th anniversary of their church and the wonderful celebration on Oct. 31.  Jim and Melody are thankful to God for safety as they traveled around the US during their time there, and for safety in returning to Chile on Nov. 1-2.  They praise God for the men who preached and ministered in their place while they were away.  Please do not forget to pray that the Venezuelans will be able to continue coming to church while the Bjurs are away.
