Monday and Tuesday in Anda

Mike Blogging again. Tammy has a lot of catching up to do with Chris's school and is trying to get us already to move as well as do a ton of washing (by hand).
Monday morning dawned bright and sunny as do most days there. We got to watch the kindergartners coming to school and meet their teacher. They are a cute bunch of kids! Then we went into town to breakfast at a great bakery/cafe - a huge mug of fresh cafe con leche cost about a US quarter! So, fully caffeinated we went to a meeting with the folks from Kawsay. We talked about health care in the area (there is a great German Mission hospital close in Abancay), transportation, office and working conditions, and in order to be sure we are making an informed decision about living at Munay Wasi, we discussed various other possibilities. Most of them ended up being considerably expensive - Andahuaylas is a landlocked valley, so land is high and rent is costly. We had lunch together and then Tammy, Chris and I went to a park and had some ice cream. That night, we went to Cayo Vargas church where I preached - again translated into Quechua from Spanish.
Tuesday, we went with Martin to check out 2 apartments that were for rent by Christians and had reasonable prices - only about 4-5 times higher than the rent at Munay! Tammy will be putting these picturs on soon as well. They were nice, but much smaller and in the center of town - comparatively noisy and dirty to Munay (although nicer than Lima!) Then we met a friend from Lima who has moved to Andahuylas and spent some time her and her family, bought some fresh Cheese and Bread and went home to Munay.
God bless,
Mike

New Presentation Introducing Our Ministry and Peru

We designed this presentation for camp ministry, but it's also a good intro to the ministry and Peru for anybody.  It could be used in a missions moment as well, or possibly in Sunday School. You can  get it to play with speaker notes by clicking on the gear and selecting that.  If you want to use this and need any help please email us at missionarymike@gmail.com .

We also have presentations on the geography, transportation, and foods of Peru.  Let us know if you would like to use or see those!


Ministry in Peru continues while we are in the US

In March, while we were up in Iowa, the team in Peru was doing an evangelistic campaign and training pastors in evangelism. They were rained out one day but were given an hour on the radio to make up for it.  A ministry that heard the program is interested in providing radio transmitters if we will broadcast solid teaching for rural communities.

Missionary Vision

We analyzed the story presented in the Bible for our Bible conferences, and it profoundly affected how we view things. Mike’s emergency eye surgeries for glaucoma have certainly put physical vision in the limelight. And we’re glad to report that his vision is stable in the right eye and his actually improved in his left eye. This has been a wonderful answer to prayer. As we start a new year another kind of vision has been on our minds. The vision of our ministry. Planning for another year of ministry is a good time to check on our ministry vision, and how it lines up with God’s vision. The source for all missionary work and vision is God’s vision as presented in the Bible. A few years ago we analyzed the story presented in the Bible for our Bible conferences, and it has profoundly affected how we view things. Reduced to its bare bones, the story of the Bible is this: The main character, God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) always existed. God created Man 1, the other major char…
