Albania / Peru Post

Thursday April 10, 2014

Dear Friends,

Albania Clinic July 2014

Our Albania medical clinic in July 2014 needs at least 4 more non-medical people on the trip.  We also need at least one more doctor, PA, or nurse practitioner.  Please contact Rick Williamson (rwilliamson@teamorh.com) or Jan Milton (jan@operationrenewedhope.org).  We have a great team, but we would like to have one more medical caregiver.

Peru Clinic 2013 Follow-up

Buddy Fitzgerald is a missionary with Baptist World Missions.  He and his family, ministering out of Puerto Maldonado, Peru, on the east side of the Manu jungle, hosted the 2013 Peru clinic.

This jungle area is skirted on the east and north by Rio Madre de Dios.  The jungle clinic area for 2013 was at the foot of the mountains on the west side of the jungle which climbs up to Cusco at 13000 feet.  Buddy is managing the follow-up of the clinic, spiritually.  He writes the following.

“Hey Jan, hope you are well.   I had a good phone conversation with our friend Alex yesterday. He and his wife recently returned from another jungle visit.  God seems to be prospering the work, and the churches in Patria and Pilcopata are growing. They have had some nice events, and he continues emphasizing evangelism and discipleship. They even sometimes travel back and forth in order to hold joint services and encourage one another.  Right now with rainy season it is difficult if not impossible for him to arrive in Salvacion, because the Carbon River, which we crossed, is much higher at this time. He mentioned that he is really looking forward to moving down there in September, Lord-willing, because it seems there is never enough time to do all he wants there. He is very thankful for your support, and we continue to pray for an increase later on which will allow him to be there full time.

The little church there in Patria is currently saving to buy a lot, and they thought that it was all worked out, but it seems that some authorities changed their mind. We are asking that God would make it possible soon.”

Alex Herrera, the young man that Buddy refers to, wrote the following report of the on-going work in and around Patria, Pilcopata, and Salvacion.  We are sending them $200.00 per month to pay their travel expenses.  Please pray that we will be able to continue this support for the follow up of those who were saved.  We hope they will establish good churches in Patria, Pilcopata, and Salvacion, Peru.

“Dear Brother, the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you. I pray that God is blessing you. I would like to update you concerning the tremendous things Christ has done in the Jungle of Kosñipata. By the grace of God, and with your help, we were able to travel to the jungle on January 7 - 23, 2014. Once again our great God was able to use us in an incredible manner during this trip. One of the goals that we now have in the jungle is to purchase land for the church and the brethren of the church have committed themselves to God to give a certain amount each month. If we are able to fulfill our commitment, we should be able to purchase our own land by the end of this year. Dear brother, the brethren here are very excited; they certainly have their own challenges, but I trust in God, who will be working in their lives.

I would like to share with you the activities of the month of January:

Evangelism                          50 persons evangelization
Visitation                            20 brothers/sisters visited
Home Services                   6 services in church homes
Church Services                2 services with all the brethren
Counseling                         7 brothers/sisters counseled
Conversions                       1 person saved
Children’s Services            2 children’s services
Weddings                          1 wedding conducted

Dear brother, God has used us to in a particular wedding, where I was invited to preach and to be the witness, namely the wedding of Alex and Carmen. Thanks be to God, due to this opportunity, I was able to witness to a large part of his family and also to the justice of the peace. This was a wonderful experience because it also has encouraged other brethren to marry. I share this with you because in our country the majority of the couples live together.

Brother, I am so thankful to God for giving me the ability to serve Him and thank you also for your prayers and offerings toward the ongoing work in the jungle. Thank you, brother, for your faithful support. We here in the church are also praying for your trip. God bless the dear brothers in you their homes and in the work where God has placed each one. Sincerely, The Herrera Family”
