Prayer Requests for this week...

This is Guillermo as he shares a Bible story during our storying conference on the Tambo river.
Pray for him as he takes God's Word to his Ashaninca people.

Whew. Life is fast here in Peru. Thank you so much for your prayer support! Don't ever think that any second that you spend praying for the people of Peru and for us is wasted. We depend on your prayers to sustain us every day...don't ever stop!

On Monday, January 12, Jeff, Liesa, Haylee and Jackson will be heading up in the Andes to Huaraz, Peru to work with Ingleside Baptist Church from Macon, Georgia as we conduct a conference for pastors. Many of the pastors in the indigenous areas of Peru have no formal theological training so events like this are so important. We are expecting nearly 150 pastors to find their way to Huaraz for this training event. We will also be having a women's conference along with the training for pastors. And, we'll be having a children's camp as well. So, it's a busy week. Please pray.

The next week, on January 19, we'll join together with our team for a retreat where we'll re-focus and re-energize for a very busy 2009 ahead of us. We have much to do and we need God's wisdom and guidance as we coordinate the strategies of the churches in the U.S. who are working with the unreached people groups of Peru. We'll have a week of prayer, training and a lot of fun, too. Please pray for this event as well.

We'll try to update and post some things as internet availability allows. Thank you for your partnership in reaching the people of Peru with the message of Hope.

Other Prayer Requests..
  • Pray for Haylee and Jackson. They are enjoying their 'summer' break (remember the seasons are reverse below the equator!). Please pray for meaningful friendships here in Lima for the both of them.
  • Pray for us to find a good church to get plugged into here in Lima. We have visited several and we need wisdom to make a good decision.
  • Pray for Liesa and Jeff as we try to get up to speed with all of the tasks that we must learn how to do. Right now it's like drinking from a fire hydrant.
  • Pray that our ability to speak Spanish will improve every day.
