Thank you for praying for the training module for pastors and teachers in northern Peru. The Lord granted everyone safe travel, and also provided an encouraging time of fellowship and fruitful instruction for the pastors of Pacaipampa. Fifty-four men were able to spend five intensive days in a small church building studying the Doctrines of the Scriptures along with Expository Preaching. In addition to the teaching, the men also received Wayne Grudem’s “Systematic Theology” along with John MacArthur’s “Preaching.”

Below, are a few photos of the event, as well as an email from Javier Carhuapoma giving us an update on the week: 

I give thanks to God for his blessings in the work of the ministry. It was a great joy in the Lord to be able to travel to San Luis in Pacaipampa. It was a very long trip to the town of San Luis, and it was wearisome, but it was an encouraging time. God blessed us by bringing fifty-four students from the mountains, and we spent a wonderful week together, from April 27 to May 1. We learned a lot from the brothers that participated in the course as we saw their love for the Lord, many of them traveling by foot two, four, or six hours to get to the academy.

The Scriptures say that the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few and that we are to pray that the Lord might send more workers into His harvest. We believe that our Lord has answered these prayers. There are many brothers that are willing to study in order to better serve our God, and who will be in the future academy modules, Lord willing. The next module will be from August 31 to September 4. We give thanks to the Lord for the books that HeartCry was able to give to the students. We ask you to pray for these 54 men, that the Lord would be guiding them in their studies and that they all move forward in this work.

Luke began working for HeartCry in 2012 after graduating from Virginia Tech. He was raised in Harrisonburg, Virginia and now resides a few hours south in Radford, Virginia with his wife Meghan and their three children. He is the coordinator for the work that HeartCry is involved in throughout Latin America.
