This weekend, we gave our first ‘course for couples’ in our Brazos Abiertos church. Thanks to our guest speakers Alfredo and Ligia from Colombia, we were able to bring restoration and to equip couples by sharing God’s principles for their lives with them.
The first ‘Gran Feria’ or ‘Fancy Fair’ was a great success! We thank everyone who helped and / or visited us on that day. The goal is reached; the money needed to buy school books for the new school year.
We are grateful for the dedication of the Ywam team from Lima, who visited us for over a week. With the team we have been able to show the love of Jesus in different ways: practical work, education at a local school and in the different ministries of Brazos Abiertos.
We had our first meeting with the men, living around ‘Brazos Abiertos’. It was great! We’ll meet every 2 weeks @ Brazos Abiertos to play sports, games, talk about a theme or to heat the grill.
Praise to God! 4 Of our church members made the decision to be baptised. Standing in the water, each of them gave a powerful testimony. How God touched their lives and how they want to live their lives with Him.
In August, Peruvians celebrate ‘the day of the Child’. In Brazos Abiertos we celebrated it as well, in a special family church service with lots of games, prices and of course, with candies. It was a great happening.
