Pastor’s Corner

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

ESV, James 1:27

Hogar De Esperanza (House of Hope)

Remember to pray for the orphanage in Peru! As we shared a few weeks ago, ongoing land disputes have recently erupted again, as a neighboring company is attempting to build a wall across orphanage property, claiming that land for their own, destroying the entrance to the orphanage, and cutting off electric (and subsequently water) to the orphanage. The work with the children is challenging enough without all of these other complications as well. Ask God to show Himself strong to these children, to protect them, to strengthen the workers, and ultimately to resolve this situation. The orphanage has a great team that’s working to resolve the issue, and we stand by as a church ready to offer whatever assistance we can. (Remember to pray for our team that will be traveling to Peru in the next few weeks). We know God will protect and provide, so this is a fun situation to pray for: God will win, so it’s a guaranteed answer to prayer! We just don’t know which awesome way He will choose to work.

Praying with you,

 Pastor Robert
