Hey family, friends, church family and all Mission Peru supporters. My name is Adele and I am going to share a little bit about what God has been revealing and working in my life on Mission Peru 2018. So to start off I need to just say wow we have such a good good God. Our team has been blessed with some of the LORD’s amazing servants, both the missionaries here in Peru and the leaders that came down with our team. They have taught me so much, and are such good role models of what serving for God looks like. The missionaries here in Peru have been doing amazing things and it has been inspiring and has started a flame for missions burning inside my heart. One of the most prominent things that have happened was today when we went to Elim to join in on the children’s ministries. We were singing worship songs all together and it hit me that even with our language barriers we were all in one room, all ages praising the same God. The God who sent his son to die on the cross for all of our sins, because of the love he has for us. I have witnessed God’s grace and faithfulness through this week so far and it has only been three days. I know that God has brought me to Peru for a reason and as I am starting to see why, little by little. God’s timing is beautiful and perfect so I will continue in obedience, working hard and serving the people in Peru. We were reminded to take heart and wait for the LORD. God will reveal his purpose to me in time and I am so excited for it. Today has been very emotional for me. The children touched my heart today and I have never felt so humbled. Even the thankfulness that the parents showed to us loving on their kids was amazing. God’s mercy and grace is everywhere and it has been so important for me to be reminded of. Though they have very little they are so joyful and loving because of God. This is a lesson I have learned and not been the one to teach. It is only day three and I have witnessed things that are life changing and will not be forgotten. God saves, he is good and perfect. Thank you for all your prayers as our team will need it. We are headed into some heavy days, like at the garbage dump. These days to come are going to be long, tiring and hard but by God’s grace we will work through them to give glory to God.
