Update from Carlos Calderon:
Life and death
Every day I receive news of leaders passing away due to COVID. We pray for some of you with relatives also affected. This is probably something we will -most likely- reluctantly have to learn to live with.
Personally, family side, the biggest news is the arrival of Eliana Grace, our fourth grandchild, Anne and Josue's first baby, a beautiful and healthy girl. Everyone is doing great. God is good. Before school starts, we hope to take some vacation time, and I begin a non-stop series of engagements till December, including an overseas get-together of all Partners field personnel in a country in the Middle East.
We continue refining a more concise and clear message to share what Partners does. It's always been clear to me! But I am always open to giving a clearer image: The Gospel for the least reached and a church-planting church for every people. Some travel is now possible, and Area Directors are doing various visits and running various trainings. Please pray for our brothers in Afghanistan. One was arrested and three are in hiding. No news from the other 400 we were working amongst. Please pray for visas, and open venues as COVID restrictions are still many, particularly for non-USA passport holders.
