Working Together, Completing the Task!

IMG_0951 - CopyWe are so grateful to all of you for your prayers and financial support, and for your partnering with us in taking the gospel to the world.

Together and by God’s grace, we are spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in Peru, India, and Asia. Together we are feeding the poor, providing homes for the needy, training for vocations, and training native missionaries and pastors. Together we are a small part of a very big task left to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” This is our Great Commission because it is His Great Commission.

Working together, we are completing this task. We know and understand that the hardest work is done by the native leaders on the mission field and by those working to assist and train them. We are honored and blessed to work with people like Jim Randall in Asia, the Kaushal family in north India, and Marco Aroni in Peru. Each month we receive many reports of what God is doing in these locations: people coming to know Jesus, orphans finding homes, native leaders going forward to reach their nations with the gospel. God is doing great things and allowing us to be part of it. What an honor and privilege to serve God, who loves and cares about people. May we all continue to sacrifice for God’s great cause of reaching the seeking hearts around the world with His glorious Gospel.

In His Service,  Brian Weller

Christmas Blessing BGThe Christmas Blessing Project (CBP) has been a genuine blessing to thousands of children and families in Peru and India. It’s a great, simple way to bless a child with a gift in the name of Jesus.

Remember when you were a child and people who cared about you gave you a gift at Christmas? Knowing someone loved that much made you feel a bit more special. Am I right? Many people in this world don’t have that same opportunity.

I have looked in the eyes of children as they receive that one simple gift given by our donors. Looking at their mile-wide smiles truly is a blessing! For many in the poor areas where we work, the gift that we provide is all a child will get this Christmas. The gifts are given through the ten feeding centers that we sponsor in Peru and other affiliated ministries. The leaders we work with purchase the gifts and place them one by one in the hands of the children.

Would you consider helping us put a gift in the hands of a child in Peru? The cost is only $3 for each gift. Every $30 provides a gift for 10 children.

Or would you help us purchase a new set of clothes for a child in India?  Every $20 provides a new set of shoes, socks, and a sweater for a child. Gifts to India will be given through Living Hope Ministries in North India.

One hundred percent of your gift goes directly to their gifts.

New Able Hands Vocational Training Center in Peru

1382830_10151924371151061_244689837_nMarcos Zuniga has his own construction company, but Marcos also has a great passion for helping others to know the Lord Jesus and to discover their God-given talents. He loves sharing what he has learned.

Marcos came to us in July with a plan to bring vocational training to the people of Ventanilla (In the northwest region of Lima). Three months later, that dream is a reality. Last month we shared how the Lord provided a plot of land we can use for free for a full year. Since that time, the new prefabricated building has gone up, tools have been purchased, and classes have started. The local church and civic leaders are thrilled that this vocational center is now part of their community. Thank you for helping to make this dream a reality!
