Nicomedes Saavedra is the pastor of a church in Pacaipampa, in the northern region of Peru. While he is devoted to the church in Pacaipampa, the Lord has also used him and the congregation to start several other church plants in villages throughout the region.
I have been encouraging the believers from our church in San Lorenzo to go out with me to the white fields ready for harvest that are all around us, to the highest regions of the mountains, where people live who have never heard the Gospel: to the high regions of Huancabamba.
This place is often called, “The Devil’s Cradle,” because the people there practice witchcraft and sorcery.
When we go to these places we pass out tracts from one house to the next. While almost all of the people reject us, refuse to listen, and mock us, there are a few people who listen attentively. This is our goal for 2015, to reach these places to a greater extent.
Brothers and sisters, I ask you to be praying for these high places in the region of Pacaipampa, that the Lord would open doors for His Word to go forth in order that there might be a work of the Lord there.
