"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

LOOKING BACK: Abner Creek Baptist Church (South Carolina) Serves In Curahuasi, Peru

What an AMAZING week as Abner Creek Baptist Church served here in southern Peru. The team of four, was led by their youth pastor, Greg Mathis. Each day, each member served along side our family. Throughout the week, the team helped us serve and teach the Bible in local schools, taught soccer/baseball skills to young students, hosted a Youth Event with the local Baptist church, ministered to families suffering financially and spiritually, and worked many hours with the final construction phase of the new Rooted In Grace & Love mission home.
 
We were so grateful for their hearts and willingness to travel hundreds of miles to help share the love of JESUS CHRIST. Thank you, Greg, for training us on an effective way to share the Gospel looking at 3 Circles.
 
Also, for all that you did for our children and encouragement that you gave them for their schooling and music...THANK YOU, so much for this!
 
We will pray for your mission field at home. Please keep praying also for the people here to come to know God's only Son, Jesus Christ, as their personal Lord and Savior. 
 
"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
~Revelation 7:9-10
