Jesus Ministry in Trujillo

Greetings from Trujillo! This morning before beginning drama ministry the team enjoyed a delicious breakfast of pancakes and eggs at Tito’s house. Today was our last day with Tito. As we gathered in his home, the team was able to express to him how grateful they are for all the work he has been doing. Tito also thanked the students for their willingness to come and share Christ’s love with the people of Peru. This was a great time of loving and encouraging one another in the faith. We are so thankful for the body of Christ!

Today has been an amazing day of ministry. The students have been in great moods and are really taking advantage of the time we have left to minister in Peru. At our first site the students performed the drama at a marketplace. A group of our students were able to talk with a man who is a believer in Christ. As they prayed for him and encouraged him in his walk with the Lord, he asked if he could share a story. The man told his testimony about how he was once very ill and could not walk. He did not know the Lord and this was a very discouraging time in his life. One day while he was sitting in the hospital another man came to visit him. This man was a believer and prayed for his healing. After this the man began to get better! He knew that it was because of God’s power that he was getting better and he gave his life to the Lord. The students were so encouraged by this man’s testimony and how the Lord is continuing to use him. We rejoice together that we were able to meet and encourage one of our brothers in Christ!

At another drama site the students witnessed the Lord drawing in a crowd. As they set up to perform the drama there were not very many people around. However, as we have graciously seen before the Lord began to draw people in and soon there was a large crowd surrounding the drama. Afterwards, the students went out with a sense of urgency to share the good news of Jesus Christ. We saw many people give their lives to the Lord! We know that in heaven there is a big celebration happening over those who have come to Christ!

Thank you once again for all of your prayers. The Lord is moving in mighty was here in Trujillo and it is evident that He is answering our prayers. Please continue to pray for endurance and strength as our time of departure in drawing near. The Lord has done amazing things in Peru but He is not done working yet! Thank you again for praying for us. Everyone is looking forward to sharing many more of these amazing stories!

    I know that your journey is coming to an end, and you must be sad. BUT I cannot wait to hear of the wonderful things God is doing in Peru! Don’t forget Psalm 121:5, “The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.” God is protecting you; there is nothing in your time in Peru that He didn’t have a hand in! Have a safe trip home and remember that you and your team have a lot of people praying for you!
