Visiting professor: Dr. Neil Hegeman

Saturday, May 21st Dr. Hegeman was able to come to teach at the seminary. He taught Philosophy of Christian education. The class structure is that we meet on Saturdays for 5 hours and then throughout the week are assignments to do. (A lot of assignments! I am taking this

course because it is one of the ones I lack. And that is why there have been so few posts.) The material that he presented was challenging for the students, but it also made them feel like "Yeah, this is real!"

The first week's assignments were difficult because they defined philosophy and Christian education. It was definitely a stretch! Then there was a week where we had to cancel class for the elections--which gave a little breathing space to finish the required reading.

The exam for the class is June 18th. Please pray for the students as they have to finish their reading and essays by then. For some of them this is the first essay they have ever written. The older students and the ones from the country graduated from schools with very little requirements. (One older lady is mostly self-educated, but she has a great desire to learn!) The ones who have been to universities and the Mobile Bible Institute are more at home with the assignments. Pray for their encouragement, diligence in their studies, and understanding of the material.

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 .

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.

Frequently Asked Questions Part 1

We've been visiting lots of groups and answering lots of questions. Some questions are so popular that we thought you might have them too!

How did you become missionaries? Mike answered a call to missions in church as a teenager, but became alienated from a graceless church and wouldn't darken a church door until after Mike and Tammy's first child was born.  After they both started following Jesus, they became youth leaders, and then Mike felt a reactivation of the call to be a missionary.  Tammy's response: NO! If we do that we will never have matching furniture!
Their pastor advised Mike to not push this issue. If the desire was from God, then Tammy would feel it too.  Sometime later, she was reading a book about worldviews to review for the youth group. She realized that God had saved her from the futility and hopelessness that most people are experiencing, but that she was more concerned with having a nice middle class life than helping others experience that hope…
