One Christian once said, “The Gospel is only Good News if it gets there in time.” But what does this “Good News” become if it doesn’t reach a soul in time? One devotional that’s often used during our missions refers to it as the “could have been Good News.” The Gospel that doesn’t “get there in time” becomes a message of truth and love that could have brought salvation to a soul.

Trekking toward Peruvian highpoint Nevado Huascaran. Peru is a country of breathtaking physical beauty! This is especially true in the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Negra ranges of the Andes Mountains. Gorgeous mountain peaks, valleys, lagoons, waterfalls and rivers beautifully proclaim the power and majesty of God.

Mission Moments: Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011 “I ended the missionary exploration trips as it is difficult in the winter season,” missionary Jaime Servat said. “It is so hard to get ways to the villages with a lot of mud and landslides, which complicates every route in the highlands.” Jaime made two survey trips in October before the seasons changed. His latest was fraught with illness.

God put on our hearts the desire to reunite this family and to help them in whatever way we could. Shortly after our short-term team returned to the States in late May, C4C Peru missionary Jaime Servat went to...
