I just arrived back home after leading Victory Baptist Church from Ruffin, NC to Arequipa and back. I had a great time with Pastor Scott Hefner and his people. On Monday I drove up to meet them in Charlotte, NC and from there flew to Miami and then to Lima. Tuesday we had a great time visiting the Efata Deaf Ministry and missionaries Joe and Lisa Kotvas. The Lord is truly blessing their ministry in Lima. From there we went to Arequipa were our ministry of the Peru Baptist College is based.
Our group had the opportunity to see the Bible College and many of the churches in Arequipa. I appreciate their work through the week also. In total we passed out about 10,000 tracts and invitations.
On July 6th, Amy and I both will be leading another group to Peru. We are looking forward to spending time with Pastor Derik Lawrence and the folks from Victory Baptist Church in Loganville, Ga. Please pray all goes well. If everything works out well, we will be aiding in starting a new church close to one of the largest universities in the city. I am excited about this opportunity.
I want to invite you to be a part of of one of our Peru Mission Trips in October or next year. I will be leading a group along with my pastor, Austin Gardner to Peru from October 5th to 12th. I have around 15 slots open if you are interested in being part of the team. You can also be part of one of my trips next summer. Just call or email if you are interested.
The Our Generation Camp went great this year. We had a great group of young people who are interested in getting the gospel to the world. We also had two people saved and four people who got assurance of their salvation.
We are now gearing up for the Our Generation Summit at the end of the year. Mark you calendars now for December 31 – January 2. It is a great time to be challenged for world evangelism. Itâ€™s also a great winter retreat for the family.
Please be praying for the Peru Baptist College. We are still in great need of monthly support. We donâ€™t have any room to complain even though times my get tough. I just want to thank God for all He has done. He has got us through every single month even with huge deficits starting out. If you are interested in helping please let me know or if you know someone who is interested in helping please let me know.
I want to thank all the people that have been praying for me and my family. Without prayer I donâ€™t know how we would make it. Thank you also for the financial support. We are still in the process of raising support for ourselves so if you would be interested in being a partner in our ministry, we would be privileged.
Here to serve.
Mark, Amy, Emilee, and Luke Coffey and Tyler and Chase
