Church Planting

The Apurímac region of Perú is in desperate need of church planting.  Recent studies have shown that 92% of East Apurímac Quechua villages do not have an evangelical church. The Abancay churches, composed mostly of Baptist, Peruvian Evangelical (local denomination), and Assemblies of God have recently expressed a desire to drastically increase the church planting effort for the remaining 92% of Apurímac villages.  AIDIA has happily come aboard this effort.  This will require much prayer, open hearts, interdenominational collaboration, and a whole lot of pastoral/church planter training.
We are involved in several of these church planting projects, all in collaboration and partnership with Abancay churches and with AIDIA.  

Please pray for the village of Los Ángeles (mentioned in the June newsletter), where evangelization has begun, starting with children.
In villages where churches are being planted, the dental clinic brings much needed dental care and we start an oral Bible storying program using an oral Bible called the Wordless Book and the new testament in audio.
