Good Start to 2012

Cajamarca region Sunday school leaders receive didactic materials at the 2011 regional gathering

We have begun 2012 in prayer for all the ministerial work this year. I spent the last week of 2011 working in the mountains. We inaugurated a church and had a nice visit with my son Gerson who came from Lima to preach last Friday and Sunday to the congregation here in Cajamarca.
We are starting this semester of missiology and ministerial studies on the 10th. Additionally we have a group of Sunday school teachers that we are going to train in a two-day event.
My wife Udelia’s health is better now and thank God, my 10-year visa to the U.S. was renewed.

Here Comes the Rain Again

This picture of the recent mission group working with the children in Cajamarca show the tin roof we're having problems with now that rainy season has begun.

Well, the rains have begun in Cajamarca and they are complicating our meeting in the church in Cajamarca, because rain comes in everywhere with just our ill-fitted tin roof. I think we will move evening services to twice a week, one in one home, another in another home. While it doesn’t rain in the mornings, we will continue to have Sunday school for the children who come to sing, pray, do crafts and Bible Studies. We’re hoping these rains bring the blessing of funds for a proper roof.

In October, I will travel to Piura to visit a man who is asking for 10,000 tracts from Christian Triumph – I hope to be able to find his home! Then the following week, I will be travelling to a new place where we will hand out testaments and tracts and have some meetings in a school for some Bible studies. We’re praying that God will give us victory and that people will accept Jesus as their savior. The place is far from here – four hours by car then two on foot. We will have to carry the literature on horseback. It might also be possible to take our projector and show a film – that brings people in.
