Chris Gardner’s Prayer letter!

 

Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

 

I am beyond excited to let you guys know that we have now purchased our tickets to go back to Peru.  We will be returning on the 4th of February.  The whole family is excited about getting back HOME.  That means that we have less than 30 days to be back in Peru.  This year we have been back, I have returned to Peru 8 times and we have seen God do some incredible stuff.  The Lord has allowed us to raise some of the money that we needed for the Bible College.  We are definitely short still by close to $3000 a month but we are sure we will see God do miracles.  We thank him for all that he has done during the last year.  We will actually be in the states a little short of one year.  In a crazy economy we have seen God work in incredible ways.

 

I wanted to thank each and every church that has stayed with us during this time.  The truth is that in times of great need is where you see the difference between those who send checks and those who are truly a part of the ministry and want to help out during this time.  Thank you so much for being faithful givers to the ministry in Peru.  Without you we could not have come back to raise the necessary funds.  If you feel that your church would like to take us or the Bible College on for support that would help more than you would ever know.  One more missionary on your board would represent another young man being able to go to college and being trained to do the ministry that God has called them to do.  You could have a big part in that.

 

I also want to thank God for what he has done so far with the roof situation in Peru.  We had a $7000 problem and the church in Peru came up with $3500 of the money.  We have also had $1000 given from here in the states.  We are only $2500 short of all the money that is needed at this point.  The car that was wrecked ended up being covered by an insurance company.  That cost us about $1000 but needless to say, that is a lot cheaper than the $20,000 that we thought it might end up costing.  

 

God is so good and we have seen him do so many things and we are thankful for all that he has done.  I stand amazed at the greatness of our God.  We have seen him operate in incredible ways in the ministry here in Peru over the last month.  We are sooooo excited to get back and do what God has called for us to do.  Please pray for traveling mercies as we are headed back to Peru.  Traveling with 3 kids can be interesting so pray that we have a good trip.  We will be staying in Lima one day to rest and then the next day we will be leaving for Arequipa.  

 

May God continue to bless you in all that you do for him.  If you want to help with any of the expenses we spoke about above, please send a check to Macedonia and mark where it is supposed to go or if not just email me (gardner@uttermost.net)and I will explain how to do everything.  Thanks for all you do.  In times like we are in right now in the US we must remember one thing He is still God and he is still in control.  

 

Yours for Souls,

 

Chris, Andria, Jacob, Hannah and Andrew
