Jose Luis is the co-pastor of “Jesús es la Puerta” (Jesus is the Door) Baptist Church in Mallaritos, just outside of Sullana. He also helps teach and lead the Bible Academy for pastors in the mountains of northern Peru.
God is leading us in the preaching of HIs gospel and in the work of making disciples in Mallaritos and in Las Palmeras. We are organizing house visits in order to continue with the work of discipleship here in Mallaritos, and we are also going out every Saturday with members of the church as a single body to preach in the parks and in the streets. This month, the Lord blessed us with fifty Bibles to use with new believers and discipleship. We are thankful to HeartCry for helping us with the purchase of twenty-five of these Bibles, while the local church purchased the other twenty-five.
Also, we are continuing to support the formation of a new work in the nearby town Las Palmeras, where Jonathan Siancas is a missionary. We preach publicly every Wednesday, and every Friday we visit the people in the community, evangelizing and discipling. These first months, we have been sowing the seed of the Word of God, and by His grace we wait to reap the fruits.
Now, I would like to inform you all of the recent trip that I made to the mountains. On the 20th of June, we traveled to San Luis, Pacaipampa, in order to teach the third module of the Ministerial Bible Academy. On this occasion, Pastor Rafael Alcantara from the Dominican Republic accompanied us and taught a course on the Doctrine of Salvation. In addition to that course, Carlos García also taught a course on the Doctrine of Man and Sin. We also had devotionals together each day in which we were blessed by the Word of God.
We are thankful to HeartCry for supporting the work here and helping the pastors of this region. On this occasion, the pastors received the books Created in God’s Image by Anthony Hoekema and The One True God by Paul Washer. Also, USB drives were provided for the pastors, along with radios that are compatible with the USB drives. Each of the drives was filled with expository sermons. I am grateful to HeartCry for the donation of these materials for the spiritual benefit of the pastors in the mountains.
We also handed out more than a hundred Bibles provided by HeartCry to the pastors that are beginning a new work in a secluded region of Pacaipampa called Huancabamba, so that they can begin to disciple the new believers there.
Beloved brothers and sisters, we beg the Lord of the Harvest that His work might continue to grow here. We long for the brothers and sisters here to be further conformed to the image of Christ Jesus and that those who are destined to eternal life would be gathered through the preaching of the gospel.
