We had our third Pastor’s Retreat with ASIEP (Association of Evangelical Churches in Paraguay). There is one more planned this year for Pedro Juan Caballero, near where Mike’s siblings live. As the understanding of church leadership increases, so do the invitations to speak in their churches!
Our order of 50 books in Spanish of When Helping Hurts arrived this month. It is already playing a key role in our training process as we guide local churches through the maze of spiritual and social issues and how to gain a Biblical view of “poverty” and healthy ways of addressing it.
By early 2018, our team plans to have a solid workshop laid out for training in churches.
Keep us in your prayers as we mobilize and equip Christian leaders in Paraguay to engage their local churches in the four aspects of the Great Commission:
- Jerusalem (same culture, same city)
- Judea (same culture, other cities)
- Samaria (similar language and culture)
- Uttermost Part of the Earth (cross-cultural)
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8
