Update! November 23, 2009!

Thank you so much to all of you who pray for us. Your prayers are so important to the work here in Peru. We are so grateful for your concern for our family and the way you express that concern by lifting us (and our REAP North Peru Team!) in prayer.

Please join us in praying for...
  • Our Language School (Costa Rica!) friends will be joining us for a Thanksgiving Day celebration. Even though Peru is missing out on the Thanksgiving holiday, we plan to celebrate with the Bredbenner's, Pennington's, and McLamb's. We were all neighbors in Costa Rica during Language School and its going to be good to be together for the week. Please pray for safe travel for the Bredbenner's and Pennington's.
  • Student Teams from Mississippi (Several colleges!), McNeese State, and Oklahoma Baptist University will be working in Peru during December. Please pray for them as they prepare to come and serve.
  • Pray for the missionaries who suffer during this time of year as they are separated from their families.
  • Pray for the Henderson family as they finish up in Costa Rica and head to Peru in just a few days.
  • Pray for increased giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.

News from Peru...

Hey yall,
We want to thank all of you who pray regularly for our family. Every day we sense the prayers of many people as we try to do the work the Father has called us to do. Thank you so much for the way you love us and support us through prayer. We do want to share with you some prayer requests...
  • Please continue to pray about your part in giving to this year's Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. It was announced this week that there will be a 10% reduction in the IMB missionary force during the next year. This is terrible news for so many around the world who have yet to hear about Jesus.
  • Please pray for our REAP North Peru team. Although this month only 7 teams are working with us there is much work to be done for 2010. Pray that we will have wisdom as we plan for the upcoming year.
  • MOST OF ALL... please pray that those here in Peru who have never heard about Jesus will hear about Him.
You all are a blessing to us. Thank you so much!

Please give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering...

What will you give this year?

Update from Peru. November 2, 2009.

Hey you all. Before I update you let me remind you that Liesa's Birthday is Tuesday, Nov 3. You can call her at 601-914-6705.

This past week has been a great one. Our home folks from First Baptist Oxford, MS came to begin their ministry among the Lamista Quechua people in Northern Peru. A team of ten doctors, nurses and helpers came to do four days of medical ministry in Lamas, Bella Vista, and Pamashto.

Here's a photo of the team...

This team of folks did an amazing job of visiting in the homes of many people. They used medical ministry to gain access to the homes of hundreds of people. Over 140 people accepted the offer of eternal spiritual healing through Jesus. Hundreds more received temporary physical help. We were able to distribute a large amount of medicines, vitamins, and worm/parasite treatment. Thank you to all of you who prayed for this project.
