Share the Warmth

More Peru updates.....

While staying in Lamay, one of the ways we shared the Love of Jesus was by giving away blankets. We had budgeted $ for Machu Picchu but decided that it was too expensive, so we used the money to purchase 200 blankets. We went to two different villages. While we were there we played games with the children, preformed our drama, shared the Gospel, prayed for the sick AND give blankets to the children.

Right now in Peru, it is winter, and these villages are so high up (13,000 ft-14,000 ft) that at night children who don't have blankets can freeze to death. Most of the children we saw had redish/purple cheeks from the cold and wind.
Pastor Willy, the pastor we were working with said that it was a very good possibility that in some of those villages, it was the first time that the Gospel has ever been preached!!
Acts 13:7 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: "I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth."

Jesus, Thank you for sending us to the "end of the earth"! What an opportunity to share the Gospel with people who have never heard before!! I am humbled by this calling.
