Events of January & February
Church Ministry News
We continue working with Iglesia Bautista La Fe with choir, teaching, leading music and whatever else may be helpful. Choir is a challenge as most of the choir members have little or no experience singing in parts or reading music. They are learning some basics as we prepare to sing for the church's anniversary Sunday as well as for a couple special services at Easter.
I have also started teaching the evangelism course at another church on Wednesday nights. There are between 35 and 40 young people and adults who are attending the course. They have been soaking in the teachings and have begun to put into practice what they have been learning. This next month, they will begin to do more one on one witnessing with special "fishing" trips programmed for them to put into practice what they have learned.
School Ministry News
As we get ready for a new school year in Peru starting in March, I have had the opportunity to assist a few different schools with technology assistance, staff in-service training, and working with the administration. One of the schools is a school that will be starting their second year as a school. I will continue to work with them throughout this school year as they continue laying the foundation for their school ministry. We want to make sure that we build into the school the vision of reaching the parents.
We will be returning to the United States in August of 2014 in order to report back to our supporters and to raise additional funds. While serving at LMCS, our housing has been taken care of by the school which allowed us shorten our deputation. When we return to Peru in July of 2015, we will need to cover our housing expenses as well as some added ministry costs. We will be scheduling meetings for the time that we will be in the States. If you are interested or know of someone who would be interested in scheduling a meeting during this time, please let me know.
We have completed a video update of our ministry while we have been here in Peru. You can watch it by going to http://vimeo.com/88215187. From that link, you will also be able to download it to your computer for showing it in the church or to others.
