October 2011 part 2

Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, returned again to the mission field to survey the needs from Oct. 21-29. Jaime gave thanks for what the Lord showed him and for His “strength to persist.” Jaime has been ill, “but His mercy was covering me every time I was weak. Oh, my Lord, I love you.”

Here is Jaime’s edited report:

River crossing between Yanama and Palo Verde.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” — Galatians 6:9-10 (NIV)

Friday, Oct. 21

I arrived in the Yanama District at 12: 45 p.m. I was waiting for Pastor Romulo in the Yanama Plaza, but he was not there, so I called Pastor Moises. Pastor Moises guided me to his village called Quitaracza, which is downhill from Achicay village. We started at 4 p.m. and arrived at 6 in Quitaracza village, where Pastor Moises invited me to dinner. Then we went together to Palo Verde village, where I met Pastor Romulo. He informed me that he had been told I would not be in Yanama. That was bad news. But I was invited to stay there.

Saturday, Oct. 22

At 8 a.m. I saw brother Oscar, who is the son of Pastor Romulo. He was suffering epilepsy, but he said that God is healing it. I was praying for him and teaching some parts of His Word in the Bible.

Palo Verde.

I was informed by Pastor Romulo on the situation in his village called Palo Verde: Population – 45 people; believers – 30; to reconcile – 5; to deliver the Good News – 8.

Pastor Romulo told me that he is open to get a campaign with C4C Ministry and he showed me a piece of land, which he can grant to a church with C4C.

I was going to stay in Quitaracza village, where they are building a church. I was praying to God that He may provide me the cover of a roof.

Sunday, Oct. 23-Tuesday, Oct. 25

I was hosted by Pastor Moises in Quitaracza village to give messages in worship on field and a house every day. Approximately 30 brothers were blessed with His Word.

Wednesday, Oct. 26-Thursday, Oct. 27

At 4 am Pastor Moises and I started from Quitaracza village to Yanama District. I was on a horse because of pains, which I suffered when I was in Cordillera Negra. Praise God! We arrived at Yanama at 6 a.m. There we said we would see what God willed.

I was lodged in a room of Pastor Esteban Lazarte to rest for two days to recover from bronchitis.

Friday, Oct. 28

At 12 p.m., just when I would get a van to Chalhua from Yanama, I met Alison and her grandmother Teresa, who told me that they came from Yanama Hospital. Alison had something wrong with her ear.

Then we went together to Chalhua village.

At 4 p.m. we prepared a party for Alison, praying before God so He may bless the meeting to celebrate her 10th birthday. Really, it was a nice time to see Alison so happy with some kids and parents there.

I brought a gift from brother Jans Amaya of C4C Peru, and a letter from brother Jesse Fallesen of C4C USA and me, too. Jesse encouraged Alison to keep reading the Bible he had given her during Mission: Peru 2011 in May. Jesse wrote: “God has a very special plan for you and your life!”

Saturday, Oct. 29

At 10 a.m. I was talking with Alison’s mother, Taina. She is praying and attending a Church in Lima city and waiting that God may give her His healing. So I prayed for her.

At 12:15 p.m. I started from Yanama to be in Yungay at 3:15 p.m. Then I arrived in Huaraz city at 4:30 p.m. Praise God!

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.” — 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 (NIV)
