When are YOU coming?

Greetings to all once again from the beautiful Andes Mountains! What a blessing to be able to serve our Lord surrounded by such beauty.

As I type, we have just returned from the airport from picking up CJ, Amanda and Jaxon Martin, two dear friends and their son from our home church. We are so glad that they are here and are looking forward to spending the next week with them.

Back in March we had some visiting missionaries from Victory Baptist Press. They came to see our work and plan the shipment of over 20,000 Spanish Bibles which they will be sending later this year. As I said in our last letter we will be distributing the bibles throughout S. America to missionaries and national pastors.

On March 25th we started a new Bible study in a city named Jesús. We rented a front room in a building only one block from the city square. We started inviting people by showing a video with our Mobile Unit on the square a week before. There were over 133 present and eight received Christ that night. The next week we had 28 visitors to the Bible study and two received Christ as Savior. Since then, we have seen at least seven more saved including the landlord of the building.

In April we went to Matara to pass out tracts in an area where missionary friend Shane Rice is planning on helping out an old church. It has not had a pastor in about ten years. While there, I (Don) had an opportunity to talk to six classes in a Catholic Public School. They were happy that we had visited and invited us back to speak in the future. We also projected a video on the city square of Matara last week. There were over 100 in attendance and the good seed was sown. We have another video planned for this Friday night in an area called Shaullo Chico.

We have just finished a three week class on Sunday nights on the history of the Spanish Bible. This was taught by missionary Shane Rice. There was great attendance and a lot of good information.

Building Program Update –

Praise God and thanks to some good friends of our ministry, the funds came in to place the final roof on the new building. The workers have been busy welding and painting the trusses. We are hoping to see the first ones in place next week. The stuccoing of the 2nd floor rooms has also begun and we have the electricity connected to the building. PROGRESS! God is so good! Please pray that the funds continue to come in so we will be able to work until all construction is complete.

We started this letter talking about our visitors. We also have some others coming this year. The question is…When are YOU coming? Yes YOU! We would love to help you plan a trip to come see how God is working in our area of Peru through your giving and prayers. Please let us know if it is a possibility! Our doors are always open and “we’ll keep the light on fer ya!”

We are constantly adding photos to our website of all the happenings in our ministry. Please take a moment to enjoy viewing them. May God bless each of you for your prayers, support and encouragement.


Serving Him for You in Peru,

                                  Don & Carla Rich
