Transportation for Javier Carhuapoma
In order to enable Javier Carhuapoma to travel through the mountains to visit other HeartCry missionaries and church plants, HeartCry has provided him with an SUV. This vehicle will be able to endure the rugged terrain of the northern Andes, where the pavement quickly runs out, leaving rutted out dirt roads winding around steep cliffs and inclines.
Also, beginning this year, Javier, along with HeartCry missionary Jose Luis Siancas, will be overseeing a Bible Institute for pastors in the mountains of Pacaipampa and Morropon. The institute will be held in one of the villages in each of those regions, and the pastors will receive intensive teaching from morning until evening for five days. The vehicle that was provided for Javier by those who support HeartCry will prove to be a very useful tool in traveling to those small towns.
Projector and Computer for Jose Luis Siancas
In addition to pastoring the church in Sullana, Peru, HeartCry missionary Jose Luis also devotes much of his effort toward the training of pastors and teachers in other parts of northern Peru. He is one of the main teachers of the Bible Institute (mentioned above) for pastors in the mountain regions of Morropon and Pacaipampa, where there are approximately fifty-five pastors who are studying to better understand and teach the Scriptures.
In order to help toward that end, HeartCry has provided Jose Luis with a computer and projector to use in the local church and in the training of pastors in the mountains. These tools will facilitate the preparation and presentation of the material that the pastors will be covering in their courses.
Please pray that the Lord would grant Jose Luis and the other pastors increasing wisdom and effectiveness as they seek to minister to these pastors in order that their churches would be edified and equipped to faithfully adorn the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Projector for the Work of Training Men in Northern Peru
Although the church in Nueva Esperanza where HeartCry missionary Ivan Tassara is pastoring is just over two years old, the Lord has already done a special work there, bringing many people to Himself. He has also granted a unique measure of grace in the maturity and life of the congregation. By God’s grace, a group of men in Ivan’s church have been raised up with a desire to diligently search and faithfully teach the Scriptures. Ivan is now discipling several of the men in the church as they meet once a week to study systematically though the doctrines of the Scriptures.
In addition to the training courses that Ivan is carrying out with the men in the local church, he is another of the main teachers for the Bible Institute in the northern mountain regions.
In order to help with the teaching in both of these settings, HeartCry has provided Ivan with a projector. Please pray that the Lord would prosper Ivan’s efforts and raise up many faithful men for the work of the ministry, for the strengthening of the believers, and for the glory and reputation of Christ in Peru.
