Please pray for Hilberto

Amy and the kids and I made the two and a half hour drive to Yurimaguas yesterday for our monthly visit to the assemblies in that area.  The journey has one of the most spectacular panaramas you'll ever see.  A dense green forest covers everything, even the summits of the surrounding mountain peaks.  Every few miles you can see steep waterfalls with their powerful flowing torrents crashing down toward the raging Caynarachi river which then cuts its way along the mountainside and heads into the Amazon basin.  Praise God for his creation!


When we arrived in Yurimaguas the brothers and sisters were eagerly waiting for us and gave us a very warm welcome.  We had a great time of mutual encouragement and joy in the Lord as I preached from 2 Corinthians 4:17.


When the service was over the leaders of the church approached me and introduced a blind brother and his wife who had walked for 3 hours from their village in order to be at the meeting.  They explained to me that "Hilberto" is one of the leaders in a new church along the river and that he had recently lost his sight due to gloucoma.

We prayed together and then I asked if they were willing to travel to Trujillo where I know a eye-doctor that might be able to help them.  They were almost in tears as they said that they had already packed their bags and were ready to go if God opened the door.  I called my Peruvian doctor friend and he said to go ahead and send them on the 17 hour bus ride and that the operation Hilberto would need "is already paid for."  Wow!  What a blessing!

We were able to take them back to Tarapoto with us and then we immediately sent them on the bus to the coast were the eye-doctor will see what he can do.  The brothers in Trujillo informed me this morning that they made it safely and that Hilberto will be operated on tomorrow (Tuesday).  Please pray with us that this humble brother will be able to receive his sight back.

How wonderfully Awesome, and how like our God to for a need even before it was known. I will pray for this surgery tomorrow.

Any news yet regarding the eye operation for brother Hilberto? I posted a request for prayer in several locations and would like to pass along the results.

What a testimony of their faith to come with bags packed. :) How was the operation?

Continuing to pray for Hilberto and his wife and their ministry.
