October 2012 Update
David & Evelyn Stone (1974)
Thank you so much for your faithfulness in prayer and financial support. We especially need your prayer with regard to our strategic planning related to two specific projects of our ABWE-Peru team.
We are expanding the reach of our ministry in a big way because all the world needs to know Christ!
News and Events:
And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. II Timothy 2:2
One project involves the launching of a Masters program in 2013 that will offer post-graduate training in Biblical Counseling and Expository Preaching. We need much wisdom, as we work together with colleagues representing various theological colleges in Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile. We are asking God's special guidance, as we combine our resources for a program designed especially to provide quality training for graduates of our South American theological schools.
• Pray for us as we continue to meet via Internet conferences for strategic planning.
• Pray for us as we develop new course material on the master's level. This also involves further education studying new courses.
You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14, 16
In addition, we met on here in Lima September 27, 28 & 29 with seven other servants of God to lay the foundation for another much-needed outreach. We laid out a master plan and enumerated the first action steps on a roadmap to founding a Christian liberal arts university. We also began shaping the foundational documents that will cement our commitment to the purposes of the university until Christ returns.
As you pray for this initiative, please take into consideration our team's
Statement of Purpose:
For God's glory we will lay the groundwork for a Christian liberal arts university that supports a network of local churches in our quest to equip Christians with a Biblical worldview and with the professional tools necessary to effect profound transformations in our society for the ultimate purpose of seeing Peru become a world missions epicenter.
We discussed many critical matters during our strategy meetings that we will continue to refine and clarify. Please place this project high on your prayer list! Thank you!
May God give us grace in this challenge as we continue to dream of how
God could use this university, one of the first of its kind in South America, for His glory.

Committed to our great God,
