On Saturday, April 14th I went to the district of Hunter to evangelize and give glasses to the people in that area. This was a great outreach project in that poor area. Many of the people spoke Quechua and, in fact, at least half a dozen of the older ones only spoke Quechua. Students from the Bible Training Center joined in the project with some handing out tracts in the neighborhood and doing street evangelism, others inside helping test the patients for their glasses strength, and others counseling after they received their glasses.
We say over 150 people and fitted 125 with new glasses. After they receive their glasses, they go to the counselors. The students did an excellent job. Of the 125 who had counseling, 46 received Christ for the first time. That makes it well worth the busy, tiring day. I got home about 9:00 p.m. but I was so glad we went.
This project was possible due to Faith Fellowship Church. They have been so faithful with the glasses project and missions support here in Peru. I want to thank Pastor David and the congregation. I also thank Pastor Mitacc and Pastor Freddy who made it happen without any snags here.
Here’s some pictures for your enjoyment.
