We were so happy to be with Pastor Pedro and Maria on February 13th when he celebrated his 50th birthday. The entire village of Campesino joined in the festivities beginning with a special service with a guest speaker and music. At the end of the meeting everyone stood in a LONG line to give their best wishes, gifts and offerings to bless this man of God who has pastored this community for almost 20 years. Barbecued chicken with all the fixings was served to everyone. Pastor Pedro and Maria honored their special guests by treating them to Caldo de Chompipe (Free-range Turkey Soup), which was extraordinary and one of our favorites!!
We have known Pastor Pedro and his wife Maria since 2008 and have had the enormous privilege to work with and support his ministry since 2009. Not only does he pastor the church and community of Campesino, but he trains young pastors and helps them plant churches in many unreached Kekchi villages. In May he will celebrate 20 years of ministry in Campesino and beyond. Thank you so very much for supporting and praying for our ministry. It is because of people just like you that we are able to go out, encourage, equip, support and send these ‘beautiful feet’ into those unreached places. If you would like to be a part in reaching the unreached you may give by mail at CTEN (Commission to Every Nation), P. O.
