From the Heart

How wonderful is our God! We have seen some mighty miracles this year but the greatest miracles are the souls saved. Let me tell you about just one example. As some of you already know, we were kidnapped, beaten and robbed of all our possessions and even our bank account was emptied about two months ago. Our 16 year old granddaughter was with us in Peru during the kidnapping. We were all hit with fists but Lew was also beaten with a crowbar more than 20 times on his legs which resulted in infections which took two months to heal. We first could not imagine why God would allow us to go through something so traumatic. About five weeks later we saw God make something good out of what Satan meant for evil. A youth team was scheduled to visit us for ministry in Arequipa and the pastor decided to hire a local bodyguard to accompany the team everywhere while they were in Peru. After watching the team perform dramas and witness all day in the plazas and listening to teaching in the evening, Enzo, the security guard could hardly wait until the altar call at the end of the service. He was the first one to come forward to receive Christ as his Savior. Wow! What a difference we began to see in his countenance and after a week he hardly seemed like the same person. So God set a series of events in motion when we were kidnapped and gave us the opportunity to witness to a gang of 7 men and then see one man saved. Sure the event cost us but it was a price we were willing to pay. How much is a soul worth? I don’t know but it is sure worth anything we have to go through. After all, Jesus went through a lot more to pay for my soul.

Thank you so much for all your support this year and the many prayers. We believe we are still alive directly due to the prayers of people like you. We would love to hear from you. Visit us online at:
