One particular prayer request would be for growth in our church in Arevalo in commitment from the members. We have one deacon that is carrying most of the load and we need more leaders. My biggest goal is to disciple and seek the leaders that God is preparing. I have been given responsibility for the young adult ministry and the adult sunday school class. Pray for the Lord's guidance and blessing on my efforts to do this well and also balance my time with the woodshop ministry. Things are very busy with the church and other ministries here. I had the privilege of preaching last Sunday and administering the sacraments for the first time. I also will be preaching this Sunday morning in a sister church plant in Parque Industrial, as well as preaching this Sunday evening in Arevalo. We also had a visiting pastor teaching a course on church history last week, Dr. Ian Wright from Chicago. We had a great visit from Twin Lakes the first week in January that put on a camp ministry here in connection with our local churches. We also have a retreat planned February 7-9 with our youth to visit the youth of a sister church in Lima, Los Olivos. We are very thankful to finally be in a house and gradually getting settled and set up to be able to minister to the church in Peru.
Thank you for praying for us and supporting us!!! We couldn't be here serving God's Kingdom in Peru without you.
