May 2019 Prayer Letter
May 21, 2019
Dear Friends and Family,
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: The LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
I thank you all for your continued prayers and support for the work that is being done here in Peru. I praise God everyday and take comfort in Him.
The boats have arrived! There are two and they will be kept in San Lorenzo. The boats will be used to travel the smaller rivers from this point for the purpose to visit the nine churches affiliated with MEPI. Justo and I will take Pastors up river to train leaders and teach in the churches of the small villages. The boats will make travel a lot faster and make work more productive. Praise God.
I spent two weeks in San Lorenzo in April getting the boats ready and giving them a test run. While we were there we visited a couple small villages.

As preparations for the Pastors Conference continues, which is now scheduled for August, I will be traveling to San Lorenzo by plane from Iquitos every six weeks and stay for one week. I plan on going there by the end of May. We have two speakers lined up from the U.S. for the Pastor’s Conference, one from Philadelphia and the other from New York. We plan on putting small roofs and installing floors for the the boats within the next month. This will be good for sun and rain protection and stability for the travelers. A generator still needs to be purchased for the conference so we can run it for several hours and not to have to depend upon the town’s electricity. I am now finalizing the sleeping accommodations, cooks and interpreters for the team and guest pastors coming in to serve or attend the conference. Please be praying for the Lord’s favor, His blessings and for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom for this upcoming event.
