We are so excited for God's provision!
God has answered our prayers by providing us with many wonderful blessings over this past month. We want to let you know about some of them.
First, Caleb has had many opportunities during this past month to continue practice his Spanish at church. We are so thankful for the trust that our pastor has in him and the patience of the people who have endured many of his challenging sermons (at times more challenging to listen to than anything else). He has preached 9 times in the past 5 weeks, and each time his Spanish continues to improve.
Second, we have had problems getting our licenses, but we believe that our paperwork issues are behind us. Our papers from the States should arrive tomorrow evening and we hope to go early this week to get our licenses. This process is necessary for us to move to Trujillo because foreigners can only get their licenses in Lima!
Third, and most exciting, God provided us with somewhere to live in Trujillo! We made the decision to send Caleb up to Trujillo this past Sunday. Monday he bought his ticket and Tuesday he flew up. After looking at many apartments and houses on Wednesday and Thursday, it was very evident that God directed us to the perfect place for us. Caleb met with the owner this afternoon and he agreed to rent us the apartment we found at a reasonable price. Even better, the apartment is available immediately!
With our housing situation settled, we are expecting to finish up our business in Lima and leave for Peru on October 7. That means that the next time you hear from us we will be living in Trujillo!

Thank you so much for your prayers for us. It is very evident to us that God is working as a result of your prayers. Please continue to pray with us and for us. May God bless you as you serve Him.
Until all have heard,
Caleb, Ecko, Joe, Jack, Isabel, and Isaac Stein
