We stand in the awe of our Lord as we see Him working in this place. Not only have there been more and more children (75+), youth (13) and ladies (30) in the afternoon Bible studies being held at a school, but the evening services in the church building have increased from 3 local people the first night to almost 50 last night! We kept bringing in more chairs and standing outside to make room for those who are hungry for the Word and fellowship. There were 4 salvations and 2 other commitments to become a part of the new church work last night that we know of. People shared testimonies, burdens, and love as God intends for His people to do. Men were challenged to stand up and become leaders.
This morning we will participate in a different church, sharing testimonies and music. There will be a typical Peruvian meal served afterward so we are sure to be in for a treat. Then this afternoon we will begin working in a church we helped to start 2 years ago in Victor Raul called Cambia a Casa. They expect to have many more in attendance than in our previous church. We are excited to see how the Lord chooses to use us these next few days.
Everyone continues to remain healthy, happy, and unified. Thank you for your prayers for us and the people of Peru. Dios te bendiga!

What a joyous and busy time we have had thus far! On Wednesday we began ministry by door knocking and talking to people along the streets and markets to invite them to the children’s, youth and women’s ministry each afternoon and to the worship service and men’s ministry each evening in an area where no church exists. When one man passed away he left his home to be used for a church and we have the privilege of helping to start it. During the first evening service the Lord bought 3 people to salvation! What a great start!
Each of the 3 days so far have increased in number in all age groups in the afternoons. We are in love with these precious loving people that we get to share with. Please pray for them as the new work begins.
Yesterday we prayer walked in the plaza in Forenzia de Mora and one man accepted the Lord andd many more are pondering the most important decision of their lives. A school principalinvited us to come to his school next Tuesday morning to share the Good News.
This morning we were invited to the school of the owner of our bus. We were able to do drama, Bible storying, singing and giving gifts to all the children, about 170. We had so much fun with the children and teachers. In the classrooms one girl asked one of our missionaries to tell if they had asked Jesus into their heart –What an open door there was to give a personal testimony to the 6th grade class.
Please continue to pray for our team as we will finish up in Forenzia de Mora tomorrow night. The whole team is healthy and loving serving our Lord. Pray that we will continue to reach out boldly and have great team unity.
We hope to post pictures soon. Thank you for your prayers!

Sunday after worship time our team of 14 will be loading into a van to drive to Dallas then arise early Monday morning to be at DFW by 4:25am. It will take until midnight to arrive in Lima, Peru. We can hardly wait to serve our Lord in Peru and see Him work in and through us to share the Good News with the beautiful people of Peru. Tuesday we will take a bus to Trujillo and begin working in that area. Please pray for us and for the Lord to draw people to Himself. Thank you. We will post again and put up photos as soon as we can. Thank you to everyone who has prayed, encouraged or helped us raise the funds to go. We love you!
Sorry for the slow updates. We have been very busy, the Internet is slow and we also spent a whole day without power. We left early this morning from Chepen and came to Trujillo.
While we were in Chepen, Pacasmayo, and Ciudad de Dios we saw God move in mighty ways. We’ve seen many people come to a deeper knowledge of Christ and many seeds were planted. We look forward to sharing more stories with you when we return.
Today in Trujillo we had our first day of ministry. We had a great turn out we expect many more tomorrow. We just finished our evening worship service with the church. We had a great time worshipping God together.
Please keep the Iglesia Bethel in your prayers. They have been on property over 30 years, however the city wants to take their property for a firehouse. Pray for the cities that we left as God continues to move and for the follow up work. Pray for the continued work, and unity and health for the team.
