Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
Glory to God for His Unspeakable Gift!
Luke 2:11 says, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Thank the Lord for the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ! The most amazing thing about His birth was that He was born to die. Glory to God for this unspeakable gift given to us on that first Christmas! Because of this, others can be born into the family of God. What an wonderful message to share with others, not only at Christmas, but all year round.
It’s hard to believe that another year has passed and we’re about to celebrate our second Christmas here in Peru. We’ve now been working in the Omega Baptist Church for nearly 6 months. God continues to bless with new people added to the church. I’ve had the opportunity to preach several times. We’ve seen three precious souls saved in the past few weeks! Glory to God!
Please pray as we prepare to start English classes in the church on January 12. This has been a tremendous outreach in the past through which many have trusted Christ as Savior. Please also pray as we prepare to begin a Sunday School program in the church. I will be working with Hermano Walter to teach the adult class. Sara will be working with the preschoolers.
Pray for the Lord’s leading in the lives of the 12 students who graduated from the Macedonia Baptist College on December 4th.
Pray for our trip to Ilo, December 18-20, to preach for Pastor Samuel Huaman at the Peniel Baptist Church. Please pray for safe travel and that God would work in the hear ts of the people there. I will have the opportunity to preach and teach 5 times while we are there.
Pastor’s Retreat, December 28-30 in Ilo
Please continue to pray for the annual Ladies Conference, January 12-15. Pray for many ladies to be able to attend and for the Lord to work in their hearts during this time.
Thank you for remembering our family during this Christmas season. May the Lord richly bless you and your family!
Anticipating great things for this coming year,
Robert, Sara, Josiah & Caleb Stover
