Hello friends, family, supporters, and prayer warriors,
I hope that you will take a few minutes to read this update and catch up with the DuBoses in Peru for the month of November. We are back in the USA for some rest, relaxation, and time with family and friends celebrating the birth of Jesus. I will elaborate on most of our plans later in this update.
The following are some updates for each of us:
Emma, Bowden, and Blakely continue homeschool with Cindy and are doing great. They continue to have Spanish class with our close friend Tia Janet. Also, they continue to enjoy their cooking classes on Fridays and sewing/knitting class on Wednesday. Emma and her music school had 3 concerts this month and as always she performed beautifully.
Cindy has had the opportunity to visit our mission’s orphanage, Casa Josephina. When we return from our visit in the US, Cindy will begin serving there 2 or 3 days a week. Also, Cindy is leading a class for our church children (ages 9-12) in a pre-church course to help them better understand the sermon. She is naturally gifted with children and anyone who knows her understands her gift in leading them.
I continued to work in the clinic La Fuente 2 days a week and worked with student discipleship. I also took my dental license exam in Lima to become permanently licensed in Peru. It was difficult, all in Spanish, but I passed. I submitted all of my paperwork (with a lot of help from Dr. Nathan Wilson) to our regions licensing board, The Colegio Odontologia. Hopefully it will be processed ASAP. God is daily teaching me patience in these matters!!! This last week was full of meetings as our team prepares for the New Year, our return to the USA, and the arrival of the Scarborough family in Cusco.
As we return to the USA, our schedules will be filled up pretty tight. Our hope is to visit with as many supporters as possible, while investing time in our family, friends, and ourselves. Please understand that it may be impossible to meet with everyone. It does not deter from the fact that we love and cherish each of you who have invested in God’s mission in our lives. The following are some dates that we have on our calendar. Please come say hi:
- Sunday Dec 3rd at 3 Point Bible Church in Jonesboro, GA
- Sunday Dec 10th at Eastridge Community Church Jackson Lake Campus in Covington, GA
- Sunday Dec 17th at Eastridge Community Church Covington Campus in Covington, GA
- Wednesday Dec 20th at First Baptist Church Monroe in Monroe, GA
- Sunday January 14th at Hoschton Baptist Church in Hoschton, GA
As the year closes out, we would like to introduce everyone to our new online giving platform. You should have received an email earlier this week about this change. There are so many advantages to the new platform and I truly believe its flexibility and diverse giving options enable easier donations.
Click on or copy and paste the following address to visit our donation page:
If you are considering giving to a ministry, charity, church, etc for your year end giving, please consider giving to DuBoses in Peru. This money will be used to serve the health needs of Cusco and Disciple university students to produce future healthcare leaders in a Christian context. We would also like to invite those who have been following us in Cusco for the last 13 months to partner with us on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.
Lastly, please let us know how we can pray for you and your family. It is truly our blessing and we take each prayer request to heart.
Know that we love each of you,
Josh and Cindy DuBose
