Musin on a Sunday Morning...

It’s early Sunday morning and I find myself soaking up the crisp morning as I look out the front window. I have been reminded of how God works once again…Just last night, I was talking with an old friend from my career days in the insurance business. I heard his testimony of how God used the man’s son to get to the heart of his dad. I was so excited to see how through prayer, 4 years of it, finally got his dad into a relationship with Christ. Don’t underestimate the power of the prayers of a young person. So often, they are genuine, without doubt and full of faith that God will surely answer the prayer. That is what He does!

From a ministry standpoint, there are so many things I can write about, but I will try to keep it as short as possible.

It is always exciting to see people come to the Lord. A while back, just after our arrival in Cusco, a young man from England who had been coming to The Meeting Place Church finally conceded to give his heart to Christ. He returned to England and continued to walk with the Lord. Just a few days ago, I got word that he had been baptized and was letting all those around him know that his heart belongs to Christ. It is just like God to give us a little boost of motivation to keep us pushing forward.

The Meeting Place Café, Guest House, and Language Institute

We are currently in the off season. With that being said, God has been blessing our mission with business. We have been a bit slower in the café, but the guest house and language classes have been going strong. In all, when most businesses are losing money, we are hanging in there. One nice thing about the café when it is a bit slower is that we have more opportunity and time to really tell our story and share our vision.

MotoMission

God is continuing to work in this new endeavor. We are currently waiting on equipment to arrive here in Peru. Once this arrives, we will open for business. The arrival date is February 8th. Check out our new Facebook page which can be found at MotoMission.

Additional partners are needed for our MotoMission project. Our business model requires a reliable vehicle to use as a support vehicle for the motorcycle tours. We also will be able to use the same vehicle for our family needs and other ministry needs such as group mission trips and other logistic items. If you can support this need, we would be blessed in a number of ways. Any amount would be helpful and no amount is too large. We are trying to raise about 19K for this vehicle. I would like to have the funds ready to use as soon as possible so in order to be able to offer our large tour packages when a client is ready to sign up. If you would like additional info, please let me know. All tax deductable donations can be made through CTEN (Make checks payable to CTEN c/o Scott and Teri Englund) and sent to PO Box 291307 Kerrville, TX 78029-1307 or call at (800) 872-5404 or online at http://tinyurl.com/cuscoscott. For donations for the vehicle, please drop us a note to let us know it is for the vehicle. Thanks so much!

If any of you have prayer requests, please send them our way. We enjoy praying for you and supporting those that support us. May God continue to bless you in every way possible…
