Looking back over the events of the day, there was a definite theme of “health.” In the morning, we attended the final ceremony of a health conference where, along with other speakers, a doctor who used to work for NASA, spoke on the importance of preventive medicine versus simply treating disease. It was neat to see some 200 books on biblical stress resolution given to the doctors and medical personnel who attended.
From there, we visited a hospital that specialized in treating cancer patients. During various meetings, we were able to give them a vision of the potential results in curing physical problems by clearing up root stresses and painful past experiences.
Then we went to a girls home for girls from broken homes and abusive or difficult backgrounds. This was an incredible opportunity for the young ladies on our team to show genuine love and share how God, as a God of compensation, will truly work all things together for good to them who love Him. At the end of the group session, there was a chorus of voices calling out to Christ for salvation! And as the director said as we left, “they were sad before you came; but look now! they are very happy!” Many seeds of hope were planted today!
As a side note, tonight is the first time I’ve been able to connect to the Internet, so that is why I was unable to post before now. However, I have posted short overviews and a few pictures from Sunday and Monday to help you catch up on what has transpired.
Tomorrow you can pray for receptiveness and one accord as we host a conference for pastors, many of whom have traveled from the farthest reaches of Peru.
