Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

This month marks the 7th year Anniversary of Iglesia Bautista Ancla, Anchor Baptist Church, here in Cajamarca.  We are looking forward to having a special service and a special time of Baptism.  Our church had to move and the Lord provided an excellent location for us with many new areas to reach more people for Christ. As many of you know from our previous prayer letter, Pastor Fredy Nuñez resigned from his position here and returned to his home in Arequipa. Continue reading

Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

 

Praise the Lord, we were able to take the whole family to Lima, and much was accomplished.  Our missionary friends, Don & Carla Rich went on a trip and loaned us their van for the two weeks that they were out of town.  This was a tremendous blessing for us, as we were able to travel to Lima.  We would not have been able to do this without using their van.  God provided the vehicle, as well as a place to stay.  Our other missionary friends the Kotvas family, working in Lima with the deaf in Efata, were also out of town, and allowed us to stay in their house.  These were two very large obstacles that we simply couldn’t see around.  Continue reading

Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

Praise the Lord, moving into the new building has been a very smooth transaction.  In fact after a Sunday Morning service, some of the people grabbed things and started walking to the new church location.  Sunday evening again after church we did the same, except we started carrying church benches.  I imagine we looked funny walking almost 3 blocks carrying Continue reading

Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

 

Praise the Lord, things are starting to turn a little.  After a few months of difficulty, we are happy to finally see something things start to change.  Our church was robbed back in July.  In August many of our church people were very sick, and attendance was way down.  We praise the Lord for a special offering that was given to our church to help replace some of the things that were stolen.  Continue reading

Dear Pastors and Praying friends,

It is fun to write a prayer letter when all is going well, it is exciting to report great things that are going on.  It isn’t so easy when you are in a valley type experience.  I’m reminded of the old song, “Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain.  And when you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known.  But then things change and you’re down in the valley, Don’t lose faith child, you are never alone!”  I’m glad we don’t walk this road alone!
