It’s hard to believe our time in Nauta has come to an end. We have seen God do great things in the lives of His precious people, here in the Amazon jungle. We’ve had great time of fun with our old friends in addition to making many new friends. We have laughed, cried, prayed and worshiped God together. We’ve been able to empower and encourage one another through the word of God. It has truly been one of the best conferences I’ve been part of here in the Jungles. I believe with all of my heart we lived the scripture of Psalms 133 where it says, “How good and excellent it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.” It was that precious ointment that brought both healing and restoration to many lives.
On this trip, I was not an American and they were not Peruvians...instead, we were all sons and daughters of God Almighty. We were boldly going before His throne, seeking His face and God was faithful to hear the cries of His people in both Spanish and English. He answered us, He healed us, delivered, filled and renewed us! He gave us power to fulfill His will and accomplish the call on each of our lives.
One of our last meetings was so powerful – it was as if God himself stood in the midst of the congregation, reached out and laid His hands upon His people. Hot tears flowed from my eyes as I watch God move. Many people were filled with the Holy Ghost. Young people were called into the ministry and accepted the call to Pastor, to be Youth Pastors, Missionaries and Sunday School teachers. Pastors and Leaders that had given up were restored and empowered. God has given them visions of schools and training centers. God was setting things up for the biggest revival these jungles have ever seen! Nothing is going to stop these men and women of God!
We were all in tears as God moved on our lives! Every team member, including Pastor Gustavo and myself, had been touched by the awesome hand of God. We all left filled up and on fire! We have been in the presence of the Lord and greater things are going to take place in the jungles of Peru!
