Today instead of attending church we worshipped by going out to serve the people of Peru. Before we left we had family time and Tom made us all emotional by telling a couple stories. Today he talked about Dorcus a woman of the Bible who served the poor-orphans and widows. The missionaries of New Hope aren’t holding church services at this time. They believe in meeting the needs of the physical crisis first. When people are hungry or sick they aren’t able to hear about Jesus. First you have to show them Jesus before you can tell them about Him.
We separated into our groups with two groups doing vacation Bible school in two different barrios and two construction groups working on separate projects.
Our little burn victim was released from the hospital today. We were so happy to see him and everyone wanted to take his picture and touch him.
Christine R and her brother Brian received word that their dad has suffered a stroke. Please keep him in your prayers as well as Christine and Brian. It’s very difficult to receive news like that when you are so far from home. Please pray for their dad’s strength and health to return.
