Dear Pastors and Praying Friends:
Thank you very much for your continued prayers and support as we serve the Lord here in Arequipa, Peru. I wanted to share with you a few things that God has been doing this last month.
Omega Baptist Church
We are excited about Omega Baptist Church as it is continuing to grow. The Lord has allowed us to see many people saved this past month. We had three people baptized and we are excited about new believers being discipled and moving forward in their walk with the Lord. Please pray for us as we are saving up to buy a new church building and looking for a place to purchase a piece of property for Omega Baptist Church. It is a daunting task because property is high in our area, but we pray and know that the Lord will help us raise approximately $300,000 for the land. Please pray for us as we look for property and see where the Lord might lead us next.
Peru Bible College
We are continuing to move forward with our teaching and training of leaders in the Peru Bible College. We are excited that in December we will have six people graduating from Bible college after four years. One of them will be planting a church here in Arequipa, and I am excited about the possibility of these men and women being used in the ministry here in Peru and around the world. Please continue to pray for more young men and women to surrender to ministry and to come prepare at the Peru Bible College. Our next semester will begin after the summer break in March.
The Lord has given me the opportunity to plan a trip back to the States to be there for the majority of the month of February. This is strictly a fundraising trip to raise additional support. We will be there January 29th – February 25th, 2020. If you would like for us to come to your church to present the ministry or would like to consider supporting us, we would love to visit with you to share with you what God is doing through us here in Peru. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call me at 770-597-4750.
Thank you so much for all that you have done and for your continued prayers.
