Ponchos & Prayer-Walking

View All Images from Peru 35-Day 2015

Hello from the jungle! The team had an awesome first day of ministry in the streets of Tingo Maria! After breakfast, we headed out onto the Plaza de Armas, but it had been raining a lot so the team wasn’t able to get right to the drama. Instead, we got our ponchos and prayer-walked for about 45 minutes and asked the Lord to bless the ministry in this city and to provide us with many opportunities lift His name high in this place!

After about an hour, the rain cleared enough and we were able to grab our ministry tools and head out to the main thoroughfare and marketplace to perform the drama. The Lord gathered a large crowd that only got larger as we continued! Many, many began a new life in Him at that site!

After the performance by the marketplace, we headed to a small park. The Lord heard our prayers about finding ministry sites and answered them there! After the drama, our team was approached by a man who said he was a Christian and that he really wanted us to come out to his village and share the Gospel with the people there! We learned that his village has about 800 people and that others have tried to reach out to it and share the Gospel, but because of some things that had happened in the past, the village was not very receptive. Please pray for us as we travel out to this village, that God would go ahead of us and smooth the path and that He would begin working on people’s hearts even now! We will head that way tomorrow afternoon.

After talking to that man and exchanging contact information, we were then approached by another man who turned out to be the pastor of a local Baptist church! He watched our drama and listened as we explained what we were doing here, offered to help find us ministry sites here, and even offered us the use of his church should we need it for anything! Please be in prayer for this new-found contact, and that that Lord would be at work through it!

Tingo Maria has so far surpassed the team’s expectations, and the Lord is already blessing the ministry here! Please be in prayer for us as we pursue what He has made available to us, and please, as always, continue to life the health, safety, and unity of the team up to the Lord!

Only two more days of drama ministry left! Pray that we would use every opportunity to the fullest!

For His Kingdom,

Karissa & Jacey
