This week: It’s all about the Mensajero de Esperanza

 

 

 

 

I was in Chota working in the Bible Institute, but I got home to Cajamarca on Saturday night. I brought with me several boxes of the periodical El Mensajero. We left one box in Chota and Bambamarca which was handed out personally to the pastors and churches of the area. This morning I took a suitcase full of packages to the post office to send the Mensajero to other subscribers and still more will go by bus. Then I will also personally deliver others to the churches in Porcon and five other churches in Cajamarca. It’s getting interesting how many subscriptions we have and we’re happy that the pastors here have this material to help in the spiritual growth of their congregations.

Working with the Mensajero

Preparing the periodical for shipping throughout Peru. Udelia helps any way she can but her vision is poor, which limits what she can do.
In February 2012 we had an evangelism seminar to teach the local churches how to plant other churches. There were 27 church leaders present. In an upcoming meeting, we expect to have 35 church leaders in attendance. Before the end of this year, we are hoping to see the first fruits of our focus on church planting. Keep us in your prayers, Narciso.

16,000 Tracts Seemed Like a Lot

I travelled to Chota last week and preached the night I arrived. There are a lot of youth in that church and it’s growing all the time. Then on Friday we had a church planting training from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and there were 27 people in attendance. Twenty-two of them committed to working with home churches – starting Bible studies in houses – and after a year we should see some new congregations.

We are about to print another 16,000 tracts – different ones from the last printing. When we printed the first time, I honestly thought that 16,000 was a lot, but it all fit in two boxes. We have already distributed about 12,000 of them throughout the country. We’ve given them to pastors and we even have a radio station that is offering them to their listeners who request them.

God is blessing this effort by adding saved lives to our congregations and this is comforting.

These Spanish tracts we are distributing are available to download and print at Christian Triumph’s Web site.

Up Early at Granja Porcon

This morning I spoke to two groups of workers at Granja Porcon. Services there start at 6 a.m. – they start each day out this way! I have to get up and going by 4am to get there on time because traffic is bad going up the mountain if I leave any later and have to compete with the commuters to the gold mines.

Tomorrow I leave for the mountains with two other men. We’re taking literature and the projector and films with us to help reach the people there. Pray for us!

Burning the Midnight Oil

Last night, we visited three churches up in the mountains. I went to two in towns and Pastor Jorge from Chota visited one out in the countryside. The congregations were very happy to receive teaching and our help. We took tracts and 30 copies of Mensajero de Esperanza for each congregation. We got home at 12:30 a.m. this morning.

This weekend, I’m travelling to Bambamarca and from there into the mountains to visit some other small groups and to receive a new group of brothers who wants to join in our fellowship.
