Connected at last!

Hello prayer team,
Thank you for your prayers.
I am delighted to inform you that after 81 days of living in my apartment in Huánuco, as of today I now have home internet! I am very grateful for this privilege, as collaboration and research are integral to my Wycliffe ministry.
Some other praise items:
• I went to Lima two weeks ago to work on my new visa. The whole process went really smoothly. Praise for knowledgeable colleagues and a government office that was professional and even compassionate, despite a massive influx of immigrants fleeing hardship in Venezuela!
• I saw my old physical therapy doctor while in Lima. Prognosis: I have full range of motion! I just need to strengthen my ankle with some exercises.
• I have set up some “SMART” (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals to aid me in my work and my study of Quechua.
• Immediately after my week in Lima I went to the village of Tipsa for a denominational conference. Praise for the chance to lead an improv Bible study with a bunch of teens and tweens, and for the chance to meet so many people in the Quechua-speaking community.
Here are some updated prayer requests:
• For the remaining steps for my visa.
• That I would be able to dream big and make good progress on my goals.
• For those impacted by God’s Word at the conference, that they would seek to absorb more of God’s Word in their language, and seek to know Christ.
• For safe travels this week on windy mountain roads.
• Continued ankle strengthening.
I also request prayer for the Venezuelan government and people. Due to a really difficult economic situation and runaway inflation there, “eating meat is now a luxury,” says my Venezuelan friend. And now many Latin American countries are making it more difficult for Venezuelans to enter.
Thank you so much.
How can I pray for you?
Thanks, take care, and God bless,
Alex
