CAYO CARDENAS is Academic Director and in charge of the seminary while
we are gone. He needs a little more support and a lot of prayer as he
is also serving as Vice President of the synod of Apurimac in the
Peruvian Evangelical church.
Please pray for wisdom with all of his responsibilities.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
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.

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…
