Furlough Has Begun
We apologize for the late letter this month. Moving continents takes up a lot of time and energy, but we are happy to report that we arrived in the US on the 1st of October. We are safe and sound, adjusting to our new home.
Throughout this process, God has guided us and shown us many blessings in our personal life and in our ministry. We are excited to share some of these events with you, and ask that you pray for, not only, us, but for our church back in Peru.
Because of our leaving, the Lord opened up doors for us to be able to share the gospel with many that would not listen before. Patrick was able to share the complete gospel with our neighbors after many attempts of trying before. They were open about the many voices of different religions and how hard it was to hear the clear message of God. We are still in contact, working with them towards accepting Christ. Please pray for Jorge and his family. Teresa had the opportunity to witness to our building manager again. He opened up about severe hardships and how hard it was to find help. After talking and witnessing to him for an hour, he was given a Bible and a tract. Pray for the salvation of Miguel.
With our church, we had a final meeting with the pastors and a few members to see how things were going. They were having a few transitional pains, but overall, they are growing and seeing people saved. They seemed to be handling the transition very well and we are excited to see them continue to stand on their own.
We talked to one faithful member who told us that she never really understood what we were doing as missionaries there in her town. She was confused and did not understand why we did not continue paying for everything like we did right when we started the church. She wondered why we were pushing the Peruvians to do more work. But now, after the church has been standing on its own for months, she told us that she completely understands why we did what we did. She said she was thankful for the wisdom given to us by the Holy Spirit, and she knows for sure that the church could serve God without depending on the gringos. We are eager to see how the Lord is able to use this new mindset for the church.
We still have much to do to get settled in. Currenly we are trying to set our schedule for 2020. If you would like us to come by and visit you, please let us know and we can work out a date. Feel free to contact us via email or through our Facebook page, “Pruetts in Peru”. We have lots of photos there to see. Most importantly, we are ever so thankful for your support. We can not do what God has asked us to do without you. Thank you!
