October is our Anniversary month for living and working in South America. God has shown great mercy towards our family these past nine years. We are grateful to have the opportunity to be an instrument for His glory. We continually reflect on his goodness and want to give God all of the glory and honor for His church. Many times, tearfully and humbly, we have thanked God for our brothers and sisters in Christ and amazing base of supporters behind us praying over our family.
The church plant ministry, Iglesia Cristiana de la Gracia, in Cusco, Peru continues to grow. 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 in God through expository preaching, evangelizing, and discipleship as a way of life. We thank God for rising up brothers and sister who truly desire to follow Jesus Christ as He is described within 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 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. Will you partner with us?
Please feel free to share about us and the ministry with your family and friends
“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
