Here are some reports from the past few weeks...
- The team from Grace in
Kentuckydid a medical clinic as their way of beginning relationships in the de Andamarca region. This love shown by members of this team for each other and for the people was evident enough to the people that in more than one pueblo, they were asked if they were Christians. Just their service to the people gave opportunities to share the love of Jesus with some in the communities and helped lay a foundation that will be useful for other trips in that area. And, the good name that was created on this first trip will hopefully bring benefits in the future. Santa Cruz
- Bryan Baptist Association sent a team down to work in Atalaya,
and Ungurahual. They did house to house witnessing. San Antonio
- One of our translators was asked to lead the Saturday service for the church on the Nanay river one day. He storied and I think that it was great to have a Peruvian lead the service and there were 4 adults that came forward to accept Christ and several children.
- The school children of Tucna sang the Peruvian national anthem for us. They then wanted me to sing the Star Spangled Banner. Another team member and I did, then we sang Jesus Loves Me. We then shared the gospel with them and several said they had accepted Christ. (It is reported that 20 kids accepted Christ.)

After a long night and an early morning in the Emergency Room we have discovered Liesa has a kidney stone. She has finally gotten some relief for the pain and now we're praying the stone will make its way out soon. Please pray for healing and a speedy recovery!

The 2009 REAP North Peru Fall Vision Conference went very well. We had churches from all over the U.S. who came to research the possibility of working with the people of Peru. Thank you for all of you who spent time praying for this week. The week was a tremendous success!
We are blessed to have an outstanding team working together to honor Christ. God is so good and is working in great ways through our Strategy Coordinator churches and our REAP North Peru team.
Please continue to pray for these churches as they return to the U.S. tonight and begin some days of prayer and seeking God's plan as it relates to working here with the people of Peru.
