Here’s an update from missionaries Jerry and Connie Adams in Peru. Please keep them in your prayers.
Greetings from the Jungle!
We have good news! We’ve launched the second phase of the Bible School! It is up and running, and the students have taken their first midterm exam and all have passed!
All of the ongoing classes are going well, and we’re excited to see the Word changing lives! In the village of Santa Tomas we have had 4 baptism services!
We’re working with ladies groups in two churches, and along with teaching the Word, we’re teaching them to make things with their hands. Our first project was making a purse. The ladies can sell these bags for 4 times what it costs in supplies to make. Some of our ladies are very quick with their hands, and they can make these purses in a couple of evenings. They are so excited to be able to do something in their homes that will produce an income to help with expense, while still caring for their families. Our next project is teaching them to embroider so they can decorate the purses, and sell them at a higher price.
We thought we might share a little of daily life with you to show you just how much your prayers mean to us. Jerry was trimming some trees that were growing into electrical lines on the front of the property, and came face to face with a 4 1/2 foot long iguana. It scared them both a little. He moved down a ways, and continued cutting the trees, and next encountered a long skinny object. He thought it was a rather large snake, but soon found out, it was Iggie’s tail! Surprise once again!
Our trip to the village of Santa Tomas every week takes about an 1 1/2 hours. We are able to go by jeep, as half of the road is dirt. When it rains, it is a mud slide. Some of these trips have been quite eventful! This week, as we were on the way home the jeep blew a tire! Praise God, we were more than 1/2 the way home before the tire blew.
We literally feel the prayers of the brothers on a daily basis. Conditions could have been so much worse! We see the hand of God protecting us daily. The iguana Jerry encountered was only inches from his face, and yet he wasn’t hurt. The dirt road to Santa Tomas is long and deserted, and Connie and Kaitlyn could have been in danger had they been stranded there after dark when the jeep tire blew. We Praise God for His protection daily, and we thank each of you who have so faithfully prayed for us! We truly appreciate your prayers!
We thank God for every opportunity He gives us to share the Word, and see lives changed. We thank each of you for your part in this ministry through your prayers and finances. Together we are making a difference, to God be the Glory!
If you’ve not had an opportunity to support his ministry with your finances in the past, we would like to invite you to be a part, we would certainly welcome your support. Together we can do more for Him! You may send our tax deductible donations to:
