This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Dear Friends and Brother and Sisters in Christ: I greet you all in the name of Jesus:
In December of this year, I traveled to Peru to bring the gospel to the unreached to the Amazon region of South America. It was a long flight but I made it to Iquitos, and was provided a place with minimal payment. I will be here in Iquitos for two months, while praying for a more permanent place that will be affordable along the river communities. I was also able to purchase a used motorcycle for local transportation.
Just to keep you updated, I have met with Jose Ekusebio Saldana Llerena and his wife who is a longtime friend and a Missions Facilitator, a relationship that was started with my father. Jose will be working with me as well as other missionaries that are in the area. I have contacted a local Bible Academy, MEPI, and will be working with them to form a team that can go up river with me. Amazon Outreach is another organization that I have reached out to to work along side of. I have been reacquainted with other long time friends as well, it’s always good to meet up with familiar friends. The first trip is tentatively planned for the second half of January.
I have had the opportunity to teach and mentor in a local church body, bringing God’s word of encouragement.
I am thankful and appreciate your continued partnership of love and support. Please pray for:
- The Lord’s leading on how to best meet the needs of the churches along the Amazon
- Planning the schedule of events and daily activities/decisions that need to be made
- Good Steward with God’s money
- Staying focused and in His will
- Finding a new permanent residence
- Being flexible
- My health
- Softening of hearts of the people hearing the gospel
