In August we held a youth outreach in three different communities. Around 120 kids showed up in total over the three days. 21 kids decided to give their lives to Jesus! We are trying to start up a youth ministry here and this was a great way to start it off! It was great having the Donattos here, our fellow missionary family. They have five kids. Josiah, their oldest, was very involved each day. He lead worship with the guitar each day, and on the last day was the one to preach! 4 kids decided to accept Jesus that day!

This picture shows a local named Eugenio leading a woman to Christ in their native language. He has been saved for two years and Jeff has been discipling him ever since. He has a hunger for God, His Word, and a huge heart to tell others about Jesus. It has been amazing to watch his spiritual growth. We are hoping and praying that in the future he will develop into a pastor here and that God would provide the means for him to dedicate his time to the ministry. He has the desire to preach, but he and his family are very poor. Everyday that he goes out to preach is a huge sacrifice because his family lives day by day.
