Tis the Season

My wife is one of “those people.” You know the type. The kind who emphatically believes that it is never too soon to begin listening to Christmas music. Since we now live in a country that does not recognize Thanksgiving as an official holiday, my normal defense became quite shaky and unsatisfactory according to her. Now, as we at last enter the Christmas season, and the officially acceptable time to listen to Christmas music, I cannot help but think of everything else this season has brought. Yes, the shimmering lights, the crisply wrapped packages, and the tantalizing aroma of cookies baking, but so much more than that, it has brought the joyful celebration of our Saviour’s birth! Truly, what a joyful season it has been as we have watched God work mightily here in Peru.
One joyful reason we have to celebrate this season are for the steps of faith that several young men have recently taken. Because many of you have been praying for Renato since he got saved several months ago, I wanted to make sure that I shared with you that he just announced his intentions to begin attending the Bible seminary this coming semester! Another young man, Misael, has been saved for several years now, but over the past few months, he has become very involved with different outreach events we have had at our house. Misael has had the opportunity to see the Gospel transform lives firsthand, and through this, God has really been working in his heart as well about going into full-time ministry as a pastor. This past week, he announced to his family that he will not be returning to the university but instead will begin classes at the Bible seminary. Please be praying for both of these individuals in the coming months. What a joyful season it is to see young men rising up for the Gospel’s sake!
This season has also brought more joyful news from Kike, the taxi driver who started attending church with his family two months ago. This past month, I had the privilege to watch as this family has not only continued to stay faithful to church but have also started to get involved in different ministries as well. Even more exciting though is the fact that Kike asked me just last week if my wife and I could begin a Bible study in their house every Sunday afternoon to help them grow in their relationship with the Lord and as an opportunity to invite their family and friends to join them as well! It might not be wrapped up, and it might not be under a tree, but, truly, what an amazing gift to receive this Christmas! The gift of a precious opportunity. The gift to study God’s Word together and to share more with Kike’s family and friends about the ultimate gift, salvation.

September 2021 Prayer Letter

Laboring On

The tantalizing aroma of burgers on the grill, the greasy residue feel of Bullfrog sunscreen, and the cool shock after diving into an overly chlorinated pool. To my seven- year-old self, this was the definition of Labor Day. To be completely transparent, I am not entirely sure I equated Labor Day with work; to me, it was just the last official day of freedom before school. However, after spending our first official Labor Day here in Peru, I couldn’t help but think how fitting of a theme it was for this past month.

After finishing the month of July, we were so excited by all that the Lord was doing here, and we were energized to keep pressing on. And then, our entire family tested positive for Covid-19. Not quite what we were expecting for the month, but as always, the Lord protected our family, and everyone has completely recovered. After getting out of quarantine, it was definitely full steam ahead as we had some major time to make up for. Between helping prepare Amor Baptist Church for their first official service in their new property by canvassing the area, to being a part of a mission’s conference at El Faro Baptist Church and helping to canvas a new area farther north for a brand-new church plant, we found ourselves praising God for the ability and strength to be laboring on once again.

Near the end of the month, as we re-started the Bible studies at my house with the young men from the soccer fields, we had three more young men come study with us for the first time. The following Sunday, they all agreed to let me pick them up for church where they were able to hear yet another very clear presentation of the Gospel. We then spent the afternoon studying the Bible together and answering their questions. Please be in prayer with me, specifically for these three young men, that they would come to know Christ as their personal Saviour. I am truly in awe of all the Lord continues to accomplish here and count myself privileged to be laboring in His harvest here in Peru.
