IBC Bustamante Church and the Malec family

Seth and Jessica Malec live and serve with TEAM in Arequipa, Peru. Seth pastors a church plant, IBC Bustamante. God has been growing this young church and has opened doors for the church body to serve the spiritual and physical needs of two under-resourced communities. Pray for God to raise up a local pastor to lead and serve this congregation.

the Senior Citizen Ministry in Pucallpa, Peru

Covid restrictions were particularly hard on the elderly in Pucallpa, Peru. Ministerio Impacto (a ministry of Iglesia Divino Redentor) has been reaching out to this isolated community in the city. Partnering with SAM Academy students in December, they hosted a special Christmas program for the “abuelitos” with games, songs and a traditional chocolatada. In February, Ministerio Impacto, including two SAM Academy high school students, hosted a VBS for the same senior citizen group. Vacation Bible school isn’t just for kids!

Pray for the senior citizen ministry of Ministerio Impacto.

the young couples Bible study in Pucallpa, Peru

A lot of young couples have gotten married in the church of Iglesia Divino Redentor in Pucallpa, Peru. John and Minori Lucas saw the need for starting a Bible study for young married couples, and they’ve now been meeting for almost two years. Currently, they are studying The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller.

Please pray for these couples, for their walks with the Lord, that their marriages be strengthened, and for their management of time (several of these couples are being mentored and serving in leadership positions at the church. Three are elders, one is a deacon and another is the director of worship.)

We praise God that so many young couples are serving in this church!

the outreach of Iglesia Biblica y Verdad in Lima, Peru.

The church has begun an outreach to children and their families in Luces de Villa Maria, a district on the outskirts of the city. The children have been learning about the Attributes of God, and the mothers have been studying the Gospel of Mark.  Pray that this ministry would bear much fruit in the lives of these children and their families as well as in the lives of the church members as they serve together. SAM missionaries Larry and Bonnie Secrest serve and minister with this church.

the Peru Field Conference

The Peru field missionaries will gather together March 21-25 for worship, teaching and fellowship.  Pray that God would deepen their collective identity as an abiding, loving, redemptive, suffering and growing community to the praise of His glory.

Marshall and Becca Kitron in Pucallpa, Peru

Marshall teaches high school students at SAM academy. He teaches Bible, history and PE. This year’s Bible class is Doctrines, and the history class is US History. Marshall also has a heart for discipleship. Often missionary kids are faced with the world in a different way when they return to their home countries for college. Please pray for him as he serves these students as a teacher and also a mentor. Please pray that the students grow most in their faith in the Lord.

Tuesday evenings, Marshall leads a Bible study made up of several Peruvians.  They have been meeting over a year together. Please pray for this group of eager students as Marshall shares the Word with them, that they continue to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord.

Becca meets at least once a month with a few young moms. Currently they are the breadwinners of their families, working many hours. Their husbands are supportive and helpful in their businesses and in parenting, but there are struggles too, and their time is very busy. They meet together at least once a month for encouragement and edification in the faith, and to share prayer requests. Pray for these busy moms as they serve their families and desire to be Christ-centered in marriage and parenting.
