2013 April Two More Homes

2013 March - Prefab Home Pamplona 1

These homes are such a blessing to the families that receive them and to those who build them.

Two prefabricated homes were recently assembled in Pamplona, a section of southern Lima. These are now homes for two of the families in the church there, and Pastor Palayo was immensely grateful to be able to bless these needy families. The Able Hands Vocational Training Center (VTC) in Lomas built the homes and shipped them to Pamplona, where they will bless these families for years to come. And we’ve just placed another order for three more homes! Two will be built at the Lomas VTC; the other will be built at the Ventanilla VTC. Thank you for your help in providing shelter and dignity to these needy folks who are so beloved by our Lord.

2013 April - New Feeding Center

We are excited to announce that we are now supporting another children’s ministry and feeding center. This new center is led by Dionisio and Manuelita Amaya; it’s in an area known as Piedras Gordas in Ancon, Peru. About five hundred homes burned down in this community a year ago, so many needs are there to be met. When we visited Piedras Gordas, there were no churches. We are ready to assemble a prefabricated church building as soon as Dionisio and Manuelita can obtain the rights to some land. Until then, the outreach and the feeding ministry takes place right on the neighborhood’s sandy streets.

2013 April - Mercy Childrens Home

2013 Living Hope India 5

We are honored to help Living Hope Ministries in North India and the Mercy Children’s Home and Orphanage in Amritsar. The picture to the right shows some of the children living in the home. They have nowhere else to go. DC and Sona Kaushal started the Mercy Children’s Home; their son, Subodh John, and his wife Katherine now live at the orphanage and care for the children. Subodh also oversees the indigenous pastors who are reaching out with the Gospel to the unreached and remote villages of North India. Thank you so much for helping us to help them!

One-third of Cambodia’s population was killed between 1975 and 1979 in the “Killing Fields.” Everyone educated was killed. They have not recovered, and the atmosphere is still oppressive. Vietnam, by contrast, is modern and growing. I met with church leaders who want to start businesses to finance church planting and mission work in Cambodia and Laos. We plan to start a small factory for making soap and cleaners. A Christian business in Singapore has offered to help. This will create jobs and generate income to expand ministry. Vietnam’s spiritual atmosphere is electric. People are fervent in worship; they expect a revival to sweep the land. I will meet with leaders from Cambodia this month for more planning. I hope to prepare the way for Christians to be self-sustaining as they work and minister in southeast Asia.

Part of Jim’s work is helping orphanages start businesses to help support themselves. The orphans pictured here now have a way to support themselves with a little business selling gas and fruit in Cambodia. This is just a small part of what Jim does to help those in need.

Local pastors took less than a month to arrange for a special Youth Camp, and it was simply amazing! About 120 young people from the Pisco area came to receive ministry from the Peruvian Youth Mission Team based in Lima. Marco and Pastor Jose had prepped the team to minister through music, drama, and personal testimony. USA mission team members Chuck Moore and Alex Pose ministered as well. All did awesome work, and many young people gave their hearts to the Lord!

In His service,
