Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

What an amazing month this has been. We have seen God do many miracles here in Peru and are excited about all that God is doing. Omega Baptist Church is doing very well. God has laid his hand upon the ministry in an amazing way. We had a special day the first Sunday of Feb. and saw a total of 131 people come to church. This is an amazing feat for a church that is not even 6 months old yet. We had 50 visitors and had 13 professions of faith! It is so exciting to watch God move and do amazing things here in Peru. We will have the privilege of launching the church officially this month. Pray that God will allow us to see many people come to Christ and many visitors come to know of the church. We will then be able to follow up with them as time goes on. Pray for us that God would use us in amazing ways and that we might see the church launch and become known as a place that is consistently preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This month I have had the privilege of traveling to the states to try and raise support. God has been so good to us. We have seen God allow us to raise a confirmed $175 a month that should start next month. God has been so good to us and we are excited to say that we are coming close to breaking even every month for the Bible College and the ministry in Peru. Many additional things could be done as we raise more money, but right now we seem to be at a starting point financially to be able to see things continue to grow. We praise God for all that he has done. If you would like to help by supporting the Bible College or us please write us. We are now operating on a shortfall of right at $1325 a month. Pray that God will supply that need and that we might raise more so that things can continue to grow. In a recession we have seen God do amazing things. We are excited about all that he is doing. I truly believe that he is forming us and teaching us and giving us stories that we will be able to share with our Grandchildren of how God provided. God is good!

This month we also had the privilege of having a couple of men from Faith Baptist Church in Lagrange, GA come down and we are looking into doing a ministry that they do but doing it in Peru. They have a ministry called Judgment Journey where they show attendees what the world will be like after the rapture. They are going to help us and train us on how to do this in Peru. We are excited and are talking about doing this every weekend during the month of September. Pray for this as we are asking God to give us thousands of souls and will give us the privilege of following up with them and helping them become a vital part of the local churches around the city.

We thank you for all that you do to allow us to be on the mission field. We will continue to labor and trust in God, knowing that he is faithful.

Yours for Souls,

Chris, Andria, Jacob, Hannah and Andrew Gardner
