Prayer Request - Walter's Family

Walter Ccoicca's father is now with the Lord.  He passed away from congestive heart failure oh Friday of this week.  Theirs is generally a very long lived family and his passing away in his 70s is a real blow to them as they expected 20 some more years of life with him.  Although the end has been a while in coming they were all still hoping he would snap out of it.  Please pray for the family as they deal with this loss.

Walter, for those of you who don't know about him, is one of the Quechua teachers in the seminary.  He also teaches in various church institutes and conferences in the country.  

If you would like email Walter or send an eCard, his email address  Keep in mind that Walter speaks and reads Spanish and Quechua.  He does not know English, but any encouragement, even in English, would be an encouragement to him.

Walter will have to cover some funeral expenses, since life insurance is not common among the Quechua Indians.  If you would like to make a donation to assist Walter during this time, gifts may be given via mail or PayPal.

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…
