Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
We had a great month in August and God is doing great things here in Peru! Here are a few of the things that happened and a few things that we are looking forward to in the month of September.
We celebrated our city’s anniversary on August 18th and had a special breakfast called Adobo. Arequipa, Peru is now 479 years old! We had several new visitors from this service and they had a chance to hear the Gospel! After the service we were able to baptized three new believers which was very exciting! Please pray that these new believers would continue to grow in their faith.
Over the past month we have been planning for our annual pastor’s conference here in Peru. This conference will be held this October and we are hoping to be a help and encouragement to many pastors from all around South America. We usually have around 800 people every year and there are many expense that we will incur. If you would like to give to help pay for some of the conference cost you can click on the link below.
We started another semester here at the Peru Bible College in August and classes have been going well. I am teaching a class on leadership this semester as well as directing the Bible College. We have several new students starting this semester. Please pray that God will continue to work in the lives of these students and that he will use them in great ways to reach Peru and world with the Gospel.
Thank you for all your prayers and support!
