Yurimaguas w/ pix and videos

Dear friends and family,

As we walked through the market (the closest thing that the jungle town of Yurimaguas has to a Walmart) we had to negotiate around piles of bananas, oranges and dried fish. A friend from Houston Texas, 6 Peruvians and myself were on our way to a prime open air preaching spot, but when we arrived we found that a Shamán had already beat us to the "pulpit". This "witch-doctor" was quite an interesting fellow as he had set up his table with skulls, medicines and different spiritist trinkets. As he preached his message of lies to about 8 people we set up right next to him and began to preach God's message of truth to a crowd that reached about 200 people almost instantly.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Eph 6:12)

That night there were about 30 new people at the church where I once again preached the gospel. Many stayed after the meeting with broken hearts and wanting to be dealt with personally before God. Only time will tell how many genuine conversions there were but until then I seek to glorify God by preaching the gospel of His Son (Rom 1:9).

-Micah for the Tuttle´s
