"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

Letter to our Church Family

Dear Church Family- 
We really appreciate having the opportunity this past Sunday to share our testimony and the call we feel God has placed on our hearts to serve as faith missionaries in Cajamarca, Peru. The past five years of our lives have been an amazing journey for us as God continues to bring us on our knees in prayer and open our eyes to a life of following Him. As we mentioned this Sunday, life became more about having more stuff and being really busy focusing on the American Dream, which ultimately blinded us in our obedience and love for our Lord Jesus Christ. God had finally brought us to a place of confession before Him and before our family. 

As we began to seek God’s will for our lives, we started asking ourselves many questions. Did we really LOVE Christ and did we really believe this Bible? Were we willing to come to Him on his terms, not ours? What did sacrificial giving of our lives and finances look like for our family? What did Jesus really mean when he said “whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me”? Ultimately, were we willing to risk it all for the 4.5 Billion people that are lost and going to eternity without CHRIST. As we continue this journey, please pray that God will continue to direct our paths and give us the strength and courage to enter this land. Pray that God will use our lives in a manner that will bring glory to Him and that our family will be faithful and obedient to God’s calling on our lives.
In Christ- 
Sean & Crissy Heath
