Cusco was once the capital of the ancient Inca Empire. The Incas ruled all the way from southern Ecuador down into parts of Chile and Argentina. They had intricate paths all throughout their empire and to maintain contact with each part of their vast kingdom. The Incas used messengers called Chaskis to carry messages to different parts of their kingdom.
We are seeking to raise support to be able to train and send out God´s messengers here in Peru who will carry the gospel message to Peru and the world. There is a great need in the provinces around Cusco for doctrinally sound leaders. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. We have a former pastor in our church who is from a small town in the province and has many contacts with the churches there. This pastor´s brother-in-law is working among these churches and can help us identify the leaders to be trained. The main need is to be able to train these leaders and give them the resources they need.
The other part of Operation Chaski is sending God´s messengers out to other parts of Peru and the world. The young man pictured above (right) is Paul. Paul has been with us for seven years. He attended Bible College in Arequipa for four years and is now gaining practical experience working alongside us at Faith Baptist Church. He has been in charge of the young adult group for almost a year and will be in charge of Faith Baptist Church while we are on furlough for nearly six months. Paul believes the Lord is calling him to China. Since he first came to our church this has been a burden the Lord has given him. If you would like to know more you can contact us.
