Bringing Peru to a Close

The final day in Peru was easily the most emotional, the most beautiful, and the most terrible. When we got to the distribution site, we had to take the chairs from the build site of the upper level of a building to a nearby soccer field. No picture can fully capture the experience. The smell was horrible. By the end of the day we were used to it, but many of our group described to me that they felt nauseous from the stench.

Once we got the chairs in place, we opened our doors. Early on, we thought we wouldn’t have a lot of people. But by noon, we knew that we had our hands full (literally and figuratively).

We broke into several groups. One group was responsible for moving people. Mostly, that consisted of us guys. My wife followed a few of the local missionaries who were bilingual and they went from person to person, listening to their stories and praying for them. A couple more people were put with the gospel station where they prayed with the people before they got their chair. A few more were put on the adjustment station where they would make the chair fit the person who received it.

In the end, we made some amazing friends, both in Peru and in the group we took from Chesapeake Christian Fellowship.

I want to leave you with a call to action. Each of the indigenous missionaries are fully funded by the support they receive from people who will send them money. Being a missionary is a hard job. You don’t receive a salary as a missionary. There is no retirement plan. There are no health or dental benefits. Everything you make you get from supporters who believe in the ministry.

I want to give you a couple of options for supporting some Peruvian missionaries:

Paige Wingfield – She was our guide for this journey and was amazing. Her heart for the Peruvian people is beyond belief! She cares so deeply, loves so intentionally, and puts herself out there for all to see. Please support her. Her support page is found here:  http://www.modernday.org/field-workers/paige-wingfield/

Adam Gordon – Adam was our guide 2 years ago and I still keep in touch with him and have been watching his incredible journey over the past 2 years. If you would like to learn more and support him, you can do so here: https://www.eservicepayments.com/cgi-bin/Vanco_ver3.vps?appver3=tYgT1GfNxRUldiimjHMvOaq0Z2hL9h9qN9kOABqK4KdskSODEa-Up5lt373GHnco2evTpo0mld6BrVzd2nG0pyxB2TQzMw67nz3We9lhz84=&ver=3

Danny and Stephanie Gutierrez – They own the mission house that supplied our housing needs while we were in Peru. They are a beautiful family that has a heart for supporting missionaries from the field. To equip missionaries from the field takes money and they are just such beautiful people. Please consider supporting his family: https://www.eservicepayments.com/cgi-bin/Vanco_ver3.vps?appver3=tYgT1GfNxRUldiimjHMvOaq0Z2hL9h9qN9kOABqK4KdskSODEa-Up5lt373GHnco2evTpo0mld6BrVzd2nG0pyxB2TQzMw67nz3We9lhz84=&ver=3

Mimi and I thank everyone who supported us to go on this journey. Without the money from others we would not have been able to make this trip happen. So I thank you all.
