Team Peru brings greetings from Iquitos, Peru and Iglesia Cristiana Evangelica y Missionera Los Perigrinos. The Lord is doing a great work here and we are blessed to be included in it. The YMI Team has trained youth and adults in the use of the evangecube and gospel bracelet as tools to share the good news of Jesus. The Team, including Peruvian youth and adults have given presentations at Peña Negra park and neighborhood with about 75 kids attending and 30 responding to the gospel message; at preschool Corazon de Jesus with about 200 kids and many responding to gospel; and at an orphanage with 100 kids and yesterday a special children's program at the church with 60 kids and 30 children responded to the message. It has been awesome to see what the Lord is doing here.
In between these presentations the combined Team has gone puerta y puerta (door to door) sharing the gospel using the evangecube and gospel bracelet in the neighborhood surrounding the church. In the three puerta y puerta outings we have made so far about 70 adults and children have said yes to Jesus!
One of the most amazing things happened last night. The YMI youth and a couple Peruvian youth were hanging out and talking and laughing loudly in the house where we are staying. The noise attracted neighborhood kids who began peering in the open windows. As the crowd gathered the Team saw the opportunity the Lord presented and using the ecube shared the good news. 13 children received Christ! Then later that evening it happened again and 16 more children received Christ! Wow! We are amazed.
Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray as we have a number of events scheduled and of course who knows what other things the Lord has scheduled. We send out love. All is well.
