“So we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8
We are so excited to announce that the church plant has officially moved to its new location! Praise the Lord for His goodness! The church will be renting two floors. The first floor will be used for the sanctuary and includes a small kitchen and two bathrooms. The other floor will be used for classrooms and the children’s department.
We thank you for giving so generously in order to make this happen. There is still much work to be done but we are in the new location. Your support towards our family and the ministry here in Peru makes a difference.
Our main focus is the local church and helping the members grow into spiritual maturity. This is not a process that is done in a week but established through God and expository preaching, evangelizing, and discipling throughout the course of a lifetime. We thank God for rising up brothers and sister who truly desire to follow Christ which is described through Scripture.
Why do we go to the unreached people of Peru preaching and teaching? We go because we want God’s name and glory to be magnified among the nations. Our vision is to train indigenous leaders and pastors throughout Peru so that they may be better equipped to reach their people for Jesus Christ.
We would like to thank you for all that you do and have done for our family. We pray for our supporters regularly. Please continue to pray that God’s name would be glorified and that He would receive the glory and honor.
Please prayerfully consider financially partnering with our family as we continue the work here in Peru. Your monthly support enables us to live and work among the Quechuan people sharing the gospel.
