On the Trail

Thursday, August 2, 2012
Up at 3:45 a.m today.  Devotional with the church at 4:00.  The brothers in these villages have the custom of early morning meetings and even more so when they can take advantage of some visiting preachers.  One of the Peruvians on the team gave a short thought and then two of the Emmaus students shared from God's word as I translated.  It was an encouraging time that ended with the village mayor confessing his sins and coming to Christ.  Praise God!


After some boiled plantains and soup for breakfast we prepared for what would become a 10 hour trek to the next village "Achinamisa".  Believers and unbelievers alike were so excited to hear more of God's word that nearly 30 of them decide to walk with us.  When the packs, machetes, guns and horses were ready we set out through the jungle.   It was amazing to see little kids walking in bare feet, some of them carrying heavy burdens.  We thank the Lord for the horses which ended up carrying those of our group who fell wounded along the way.  


The section of trail that we had to walk was an extremely dangerous area about 5 years ago because of the coca production and terrorism.  Many people were murdered in this area in the time of the "shining path".  Now days there are still a few pockets of terrorism and coca fields but it's not nearly as bad as it used to be.  With our 30 "guides" we were quite safe :)  ....  Need I mention:  "if God be for us who can be against us"


Missionary quote for the day:  " "To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map."  William Carry

Micah and Amy,
Because you so often are posted on our missions website, you are often the missionaries prayed for at the weekly prayer meeting. Thank-you for taking the time to share your work.Lk. 19: 26
God is the One who hears and answers prayers. We are just glad to be included in the experience somehow.
