Last Saturday, a young man from the church called me and told me that one of the television channels here had asked if I would go to their studio and preach for them to put on their program. This program is seen throughout the entire province of Paita. For me, it was a great surprise. I have never preached on the television before. It was a blessing to be able to reach so many people with the preaching of the gospel from Matthew 19:13-30.
Please be praying for those who heard the message, that they would know Christ. Please ask that God would give me wisdom in any future opportunities and that I would preach the gospel with boldness.
Also, during these days of quarantine, I have received a number of phone calls from pastors in the jungle that we visited in the past months. One pastor named Joaquin called me from Atahualpa Loreto to share with me that he is continuing to study the things he learned during our visit in November. He said the pastors there are very encouraged and are meeting together frequently to study the Scriptures. He also said they hope we’ll be able to visit them again soon to continue with the biblical teaching.
I am keeping in touch with those pastors because I want to make sure they are doing okay in their groups as they work through the Bible study materials. We pray together over the phone and ask God to continue guiding them and giving them wisdom through His Word.
