Some people ask how we can leave family and home and go to another country. We tell them that we choose not to focus on our sacrifices, be they great or small. Rather, we focus on the face of Jesus, the One with the right to be proud and honored but who submitted himself to humiliation and torture, that His kingdom might be planted in our hearts. We go to help bring this Gospel to those who have yet to read the Good News in their own heart language.

“But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God,
and that by believing in him you will have life.” John 20:31

The Holy Spirit thought it important to inspire John to record some significant moments in the life of Jesus. If it’s important to write it, it’s important to translate it.

More than a million people in Peru are waiting to read it in their own language. WeI figure that our lives given for this cause are well spent.

Thanks for being a part of this ministry with us.

Praise -&- Prayer

On the home front

After dragging 12 suitcases off the airplane and piling into the van to come to the JAARS Center we wondered what our next phase of life would be like. Would Ondrej and Loris find a job, a school? Would they make the adjustments easily? What about Jonathan and Laura—home schooling, public school, private Christian school? Where would we live? And where would we leave our children when it would be time to return to Peru?

As we look back over the past 2 years we have seen all our furlough goals and needs met.

God has show himself faithful to us in the past. We will trust Him for our future.
