By God’s grace, and your generosity, we have been able to help so much this year
In 2020, so far, by God’s grace and your generosity, we have been able to give away nearly $150,000 in food to the kids and their families. It has been extremely difficult here in Peru. The economy is in really bad shape, almost 50% of the population is unemployed. Your generosity has gotten the families through this extremely difficult time. We had a dozen families leave Lima to return to the small towns they come from to try to make it through all of this. About half of those families have returned to Lima or plan to return soon. People are struggling but they are getting by with your help. The economy is slowly opening back up but most people are out of money and having a hard time getting back on their feet.
The Lindsey Family
My family and I had plans to come stateside in July but because of the Coronavirus those plans were put on hold. By the grace of God we got a refund for our tickets. A few weeks ago we started hearing rumors of really cheap flights and that the border was about to open. We found tickets and were able to buy them with our credit card miles, We bought three tickets with the miles we used to buy one ticket for our trip in July. It was a deal we couldn’t pass up. This trip to the states will be spent mostly in Utah with my family. We are still unsure if we will be able to travel when we plan to. My Peruvian residence, Mya’s Peruvian ID card and passport and Pam’s passport have all expired during the government shutdown. Renewing all of these documents has been very time consuming and difficult. We still have a long way to go in renewing everything. We had to drive six hours each way to renew Mya’s ID card and we still won’t receive the actual ID for a few more weeks. That ID is needed to get her passport. There are no available appointments in Lima so all of this needs to be done outside of the city. Please pray that we can get all of this taken care of before January.
This has also slowed down the process of buying the property. The purchase cannot move forward until my residency is renewed. Please pray that they would continue holding the lots until we are able to make the purchase.
Thank you guys so much for your continued support during this difficult time. We are so grateful for you.
Pray that the situation here gets better and we can get back to regular classes next year.
Pray that our trip to the states would be productive and we wouldn’t get stuck there due to new Covid lockdowns.
Pray that as we continue classes online and in person that children and their family members would hear the gospel, repent and believe on Christ.
Pray that the governing authorities would not bother us while we illegally hold classes in person.
I would like to ask you to please pray for two children each day. (Mon-Fri) I will list the children below and what day I would like you to pray for them.
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
