Tomorrow morning at 6 AM I will be traveling to Peru to meet up twelve other people from New Jersey and Tennessee to minister among the Quechua. We will be assisting the ministry efforts of Ade and Rachel Yanac who have worked in Peru among the Quechua for many years. I had the opportunity to go last year (our campsite pictured above) and I came back to Brazil with a goal to return in 2015 with a group of Brazilians. Yes, I am a missionary serving in Brazil and my primary focus is Brazil, but within that focus our goal is to see Brazilians mobilized on mission throughout the world. I am taking two guys with me this year, Junior and Heitor. I am praying that we will be used to minister to the Quechua in a special way, but I am also praying that God will work in these young men's lives through this mission experience. I don't have any real statistics on this but I would say that most missionaries are called to full time missionary service through the exposure of being on the field or exposed to a need that God moves in them to fill. I know that is how it worked with me and my wife.
Over the next 10 days pray for our safety, our health, and pray that God will work.
Next year, I'd like to take 10 guys from Brazil!
