 PERU – Amazon Jungle Mission Trip
 November 20 – 26, 2008
 No. 21
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”
(Isaiah 9:2 NIV)
Greetings to you all in the most precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,The physical darkness in the shepherd field new Bethlehem must have filled the night with aquiet uncertainty that seemed like a metaphor reflecting the spiritual darkness of the age. Sheepwandered under the dim sky while shepherds carried the weight of their difficult circumstances.Bad circumstances, additional taxes, faded memories of David’s golden age, and a silent heavenadded to the personal darkness each shepherd felt. The darkness of that time in history made the brightness of the angelic announcement even more pronounced.
Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them…”
(Luke 2:9
came to their darkness.It gives me a great pleasure to get in touch with you while sharing withyou the exciting mission trip through the dark Amazon jungle fromwhich we just returned from safely. Pastor Jamie Flores, Edgar Garza,Eduardo Marroquin, Gerry Wolfe, Cornel Ianchici and ConstantinLupancu were given the opportunity to travel to the indigenous peopleof the Amazon rainforest/jungle. The light of Jesus Christ spirituallyand literally shines over them. They live in the obscure and isolated parts of the jungle, very far from civilization and the modern world.The purpose of this trip to Peru was to do a documentary of the junglelife, bring school supplies and Christmas presents to children of EFATA (death/ mutekids) and the street kids from Iquitos (thenearest city to the jungle). This visit wasvery productive. I hope this reportencourages you because you’ll see how your  prayers and financial support are making adifference in the lives of people in Peru andthe Amazon Jungle. The Lord also enablesus to share the Light of Jesus wherever wewent and this makes a big impact in their life.We left Chicago on Thursday Nov. 20
at 9 a.m. andwe arrived in Iquitos, Peru on Friday Nov. 21
at 9a.m. It took us exactly 24 hours to get to our firststop in the country. We visited EFATA ministryabout 4 hours later. The kids greeted us at the door with balloons and escorted us to their church. Oneof the kids there had a message from God for us.The message was that our heart must be like asponge to absorb God’s word. We gave the kids everything we had for 
them. We purchased tables and chairs for their classrooms and weequipped their pastor with a laptop, projector, digital camera and amotorcycle. We played volleyball with the kids and interviewed threeof them for our documentary. We left at 6:30 p.m. and went to IglesiaBautista at 7:30 p.m. We preached the word of God there and many people were delivered from strongholds of the past and receivedhealing. The presence of God was unbelievable.On Saturday, Nov. 22
we visited the street kids. We ministered tothem and fed them lunch. There were about 65 of them. Their agesranged from 8 – 13 years. These kids got raped on the street. Some of them are homosexuals, thieves and prostitutes. Our hearts were broken to see how the devil operates in the lives of these kids. Theytold us that many foreigners go there to have sex with them and thekids do it just for food. Please help us pray for these street kids. Weneed to build a house where they can be secure and safe. Pray thatGod will provide resources for them to have food and transportationeveryday, not just one day a week. They need to come to the YWAM base to hear the Word of God everyday.That same afternoon we had a marriage seminar, and about 20 couples came. In this service amissionary pastor was healed from skin cancer pain on her leg. Thatwas confirmed even after we arrived back home. There are too manydetails to describe in this letter, but allow me to say that the presenceof God was Great and awesome!!That night we preached to a youth group in a church calledRemanente. God’s presence was manifested again, and almost everykid came forward to the altar and asked for prayer. Some of themadmitted to have been abused in their homes. They felt dirty andunworthy until that night when God healed them. Eduardo Marroquinshared his testimony and God used him in a mighty way. There are nowords to express the presence of God that night.Sunday morning we left by boat to the jungle into a community calledSan Jose. After a few hours of sailing through the Marion River, wearrived in one village where we built a water well months ago. Nowthe well needed to be repaired and so we took care of it. Then wesailed onto another village called Leoncio Pradowhere
 All for Him
built a church sometimeago called Centro de Vida Cristiana Peru. Weministered at night in that church and three peoplecame to accept the Light of His Word. One of which was delivered from witchcraft. There was a real manifestation of theLight that shined through the darkness that night. The glory of God shined inthe church.Monday morning we went to another community called San Martin. We built another water welland ministered to a group of people with

. That night we went back to the island of Iquitos.
On Tuesday we rested after returning from the jungle. The next day we fed 55kids from the street in the local Christian school. We left Iquitos that night toreturn to Chicago to our families for Thanksgiving Day.We are called to minister and give to others in need. Jesusremains the Light of the world and never has the worldneeded the Light of His Glory to shine more than now. Nomatter what is happening to the world in this difficult time of crisis, we mustremain steady continuing to bring hope to the hopeless and Light of Jesus tothose trapped in darkness. I would ask you to pray for us and our ministriesand we wish you a joyful and prosperous year in 2009 despite the harsheconomic distress of 2008.
God Bless You as You Plant into His Kingdom
