Strike Losing Favor: Pray for an End



Last week everyone here was optimistic about the strike.  (Including us.) Today a radio call-in show on Agricultor (Farmer) Radio was asking people if they were in favor of the strike and the response was an overwhelming "NO."  There are three big reasons:
1.  Violence erupted Thursday afternoon and left close to 40 people injured in confrontation between protesters and police.

2. The original organizers (marching in photo above)have declared that they are satisfied with  government actions  and have quit the strike unless the government does not keep promises to ban mining in the district because of a serious water pollution problem that has been killing birds, fish, and crops.  However, more extremist groups that have infiltrated the protest have decided to continue the strike indefinitely.Photo: actualidad.azumare.com
3. With these guys and their sticks and whips keeping businesses closed and  shutting down  transportation,  food is starting to run out.Photo: actualidad.azumare.com



Our plan is still to leave Monday for Lima, if it is at all possible.  However, God will have to move in a mighty way for this to happen.  Please pray for a peaceful resolution to the situation.

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!

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…
