Please pray for the Global University South America Regional Summit to be held in Lima, Peru, October 10-12, 2017. GU leaders from across South America will be meeting to pray together and plan for the future of GU in our part of the world.
1. For Franklin Medina, husband of Lisseth Medina. Franklin and Lisseth have been faithful workers in our ministry in Peru for many years. Lisseth was killed in a car accident on Janaury 24, 2017. Franklin broke his femur in the accident and had surgery February 1 with a plate and 6 screws. Please continue to pray for a complete recovery for him: physically and emotionally. 2. For a Master’s Commission Peru graduate, Santiago Soto and his wife, Carmen, for protection as they pastor a church in a dangerous area of Peru. 3. For our son Paul, who is studying at Southeastern University in Florida, and he just experience hurricane Irma. This is his sophomore year. It has been a huge adjustment returning to Peru without him. There are many emotions involved. 4. For our daughter, Angela, a sophomore in high school, for her transition back to Peru. 5. For the eight missionaries we have sent out this year: Viviana – Brazil; Sara – Argentina; Erica – Uruguay; Stefany – Panama; Jackeline – Costa Rica; Clarita – Paraguay; Nathaly – Honduras; Sharol – Nicaragua. Pray for protection, health issues and against spiritual attacks. 6. For the upcoming Bible school classes for the Master's Commission Peru students. 7. As we plan and prepare for our Warriors School, Reconciled, scheduled for January 2018.

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…” Isaiah 61; Luke 4:17-19 Praise God with us: *We attended the COMIBAM missions conference in Bogota, Colombia, in August. God answered our prayers for fresh insights and divine appointments. *We praise God that one afternoon most of us 1,800 COMIBAM attendees were shuttled to participate in many different ministries to support the program Transform Bogota. Max attended two universities during panel discussions about the country’s future following the peace accord. In the process, Max added to the secular dialogue the greater need for changed hearts by Jesus, not just new programs. Sylvia went with a pastor’s wife and a few members of a local church to minister in the streets to sexually exploited women. Looking into each woman’s eyes, they spoke of Jesus’ love. Please pray with us: * Sylvia is being trained to join a ministry team called GO:61, which labors for the freedom of girls and women from commercial sexual exploitation. The number 61 stands for Isaiah 61, which Jesus read at the beginning of His ministry (written above). GO:61 follows in Jesus’ footsteps as He leads us to prevent exploitation, rescue victims, and restore their broken lives, in His Name, for His glory. www.go61.org Thank you! (Spanish version) "El Espíritu de Jehová el Señor está sobre mí, porque me ungió Jehová; me ha enviado a predicar buenas nuevas a los abatidos, a vendar a los quebrantados de corazón, a publicar libertad a los cautivos, y a los presos apertura de la cárcel...” Isaías 61; Lucas 4:17-19 Alaba al Señor con nosotros: * Asistimos a la conferencia misionera COMIBAM en agosto en Bogotá, Colombia. Dios respondió a nuestras oraciones para obtener frescas perspectivas y para encuentros orquestados en forma divina. *Alabamos a Dios porque una tarde la mayor parte de los 1.800 que asistimos a COMIBAM fuimos trasportados para participar en varios ministerios diferentes para apoyar el programa Transforma Bogotá. Max asistió a dos universidades durante discusiones de panel acerca del futuro del país después del pacto de paz. En el proceso, Max tuvo la oportunidad de expresar al diálogo secular del panel que hay una necesidad por corazones cambiados por Jesucristo, no solamente nuevos programas. Sylvia fue con una pastora y unos miembros de su iglesia local para ministrar en las calles a las mujeres explotadas sexualmente. Miraban a los ojos de cada mujer mientras las hablaron del amor de Jesucristo. Por favor, ore con nosotros: *Sylvia está en entrenamiento para participar con un equipo ministerial que se llama GO:61 (que quiere decir “Id:61”), y que trabaja para dar libertad a niñas y mujeres explotadas en la trata de personas. El número 61 representa Isaías 61, el cual Jesucristo leyó al principio de su ministerio (aparece al comienzo de esta información). GO:61 sigue los pasos de Jesucristo mientras les guía para prevenir la explotación, rescatar a las víctimas y restaurar sus vidas dañadas, en Su Nombre, para Su gloria. www.go61.org Muchas gracias
Pray for our ministry in Yogya as students kick off a new school year. Pray for boldness for our student leaders and that God would touch hearts in our Friday Night gatherings.
This Saturday the GEMS leadership team (Pulas, Mpopi, Boipelo, and Sega) are meeting with the potentially 30 teachers who have been trained to do school assemblies with the GEMS curriculum. They have tried to have this meeting on different days for the past 2 months and it always gets postponed. It is critically important that they meet and accomplish their goals....the most important being their presence at the schools for assemblies. Please pray with us for success in every way...even over and above what we could imagine!
$1500 in 15 Days - Monthly partners are coming alongside, but the pace of new pledges must pick up for us to get to Hungary in early October. Please pray that many will respond to a prompting by the Spirit to step out in faith with us!
