Peru Team - Day Two

It was our second day here in Peru, and the Lord blessed it tremendously. This morning we headed to Pastor Daniel's church to help with their children's church. Jennifer led the activities where showed the children pictures of snow and even made fake snow for them to touch! It was a huge hit. If you saw it, you might really believe it was a snowy day here in Lima, and everyone loved it. The really neat part about this morning is that Jennifer used snow to share the gospel with the children and their parents. Their attentiveness was incredible, and it could not have gone better.

We then got the opportunity to eat an incredible Peruvian lunch. Most of us agree that we could live off of this diet! The afternoon was spent exploring a local park, hearing testimonies about the Leadership Development Program of Compassion, and group time. It was good for us to gather as a team and reflect on what the Lord is beginning to do in our hearts here on this trip. We are learning the truthfulness of James 2:5, "Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith…"

This evening we attended the main service at Pastor Daniel's church. There were hardly enough seats for all the people that came to worship. Many families visited the church for the first time because their children are sponsor children and heard our team was visiting. That turned out to be the hand of God because that night a number of those families accepted Pastor Daniel's invitation to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Heaven is rejoicing tonight! We continue to be blessed by the hospitality and love of this church, and we are learning much from their faith. We look forward to all the ways God will continue to move this week.

Thank you all for your prayers! Tomorrow a few of us will go on home visits to meet the families of our sponsor children. Pray that the Lord would prepare the hearts of those families, and that we might have the opportunity to share Christ with them if they do not know Him.

 
 Fun with snow!
