Update (May 2021):
Pastor Juan just recently visited the villages of Aiza, Tupe, and Colca again. On this visit, he had the privilege of baptizing two women, Etelvina and Basílica. The photo below is of Etelvina's baptism.
There are also two men who are wanting to be baptized, Richard and Juan. Please pray for these two men and for Pastor Juan as he counsels and disciples them. While he was there, Pastor Juan also met with the other believers in these villages and taught them the Word of God. The photo below is of Pastor Juan with the church in Aiza.
As always, Pastor Juan sends many thanks to all the partners of AIT for their generous support of the Lord's work in the mountains of Peru.
