Latin America Mission Trip

February, 2020

WB8GKY - Jerry

I want to thank everyone of you who helped support me on my short-term mission trip to Latin America. It was a fantastic trip to go and see God's hand at work. Many Souls were saved in the poor area there in Latin America.

I've included some pictures with some notations to help show where I was. Our team of 12 from here went down to Latin America, we picked up 12 interpreters (each one of us had the same interpreter all week) and our team had visited many different Churches ( 16 ).

Each church had a church worker for each one of us, as the church worker had already set up our appointments for visits. We (our team) visited 40 homes some were not home, a few were not going to church for many weeks for some reason, so we stopped to encourage them.

My team presented the gospel to 33 people and 29 of them accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. Our 12 teams were able to present the gospel to 350 people and 292 accepted Christ. God is amazing! To see Christ at work is beyond amazing. I was truly touched on this trip.

Thank you again for supporting me and my team and please pray for the church workers to follow up with each one so they can grow and get involved with other Christians.

Part of the support went to pay for our gas and vans and our interpreters. Also some literature and a part of the Bible for each new Christian.
