Hearts to Peru

I’m really excited that the people of The Gathering have recognized the work God is doing in the Yauyos region of Peru and have opted to follow His call for us to join Him. Last night in our ministry meeting, we officially adopted that area as a mission focus of our church and are joining our partner churches on mission there.  It is always encouraging when God, who needs no help, chooses to let us enjoy what He enjoys by inviting us to minister to His people.

As it stands, I am set to head back down to Alis October 22-28 with the pastors of our partner churches to begin training the leadership and encouraging the Believers.  The strategy is not complete, but members of The Gathering will have opportunity to go down to Alis throughout the coming years to work at building a strong, reproducing church and to plant other churches in the surrounding villages.

It has been so obvious to us that God has opened this door for us and to not walk through would be disobedient on our part.  I would like to ask you to consider helping us in this mission.  We are establishing an account through the church in which people can donate money that will help make it possible for our people to participate in this mission.  Please let me know if you would like to make a contribution and I will get you the proper information.

I am working to get our Peru Vision Trip video report online on our website.  When I am able to get it uploaded, I’ll post a link.
