Over the past year, HeartCry has come alongside Jairo Sangama in the training of pastors in the jungles and mountains of Peru through the provision of resources such as Study Bibles, dictionaries, concordances, etc. We recently had the opportunity to provide him with more training tools for 25 pastors from the Andes Mountains who met in Cuzco for a week of courses. Each of the 25 men that received a Study Bible and concordance are currently pastors of congregations and are eager to receive any training that might enable them to be more effective in their ministries. Jairo also taught a course for the men with regard to how to use the concordances. Praise the Lord for His provision, and pray that He might use these tools and the instruction given to further establish and strengthen His Church in Cuzco and the surrounding mountains.
The following is an email sent from Jairo after the conference
I would like to thank you in the love of God for helping us through the provision of the materials for the Quechua pastors. The men who were present at the conference are all pastors serving in either Cuzco or Aymara de Puno, Peru. Prior to the conference, the majority of the men had a Bible, but most did not have a Study Bible or other resources. They all expressed their deep gratitude to HeartCry and we hope to be able to continue helping these men in the future. The twenty-five men participated in courses on the theme of “Pastoring the Flock.” May God help us to continue serving the servants of our Lord.
