Mountain Ministry

We just got back from a quick ministry trip up in the majestic Andes mountains. On the drive we continually thanked God for our new car which performed amazingly as it hauled not only our family but also our friends and fellow-missionaries Whily and Niki and baby Mateo Hanson/Cacho. We climbed up over the 12,000 ft summit and then descended down into the historic city of Cajamarca where the Inca empire fell to 153 Spaniards 5 centuries ago. We lived and worked in this town for 4 years and so it was really great to see familiar faces and places.

We tried to encourage the believers as we visited and prayed with many of them. I was able to preach to the whole church on Sunday morning and then to the married couples in the evening. But I had the most fun preaching to a bunch of unbelievers on the soccer field in the afternoon. It was amazing that they were willing to stop in the middle of their game and listen to the gospel. When I ended, instead of rushing back to play, they asked me to keep preaching! ..... Only in Peru....

Missionary quote of the day: When asked of John Westley why so many people come to hear him preach he said "I light myself on fire and people come to watch me burn"
