Peruvian Relief Fund

First, A message from Raul Enyedi concerning PERU and the brethren of like faith.

Second prayer request is much bigger. Please remember our sister churches in Peru in your prayers. They are going through a difficult time with this pandemic. Several pastors that I personally know have gotten sick with the virus. Some are recovering, others are still in serious or critical condition, while an older pastor died. Many members of churches and their families got sick and are battling this virus in a country where the health care system is precarious. In many places, it has collapsed and they are not even testing people any more. They are left to fight the virus by themselves.
Because of the total lockdown they have, many pastors, missionaries and church members cannot work and ran out of all the money. Many families didn’t have enough to eat. I was told of a pastor and his family that haven’t eaten in two days, until he received a little love offering and was able to buy food. Things aren’t easy anywhere now, but poor countries are affected dramatically. I have been in touch with people in many countries, among them India, Pakistan, Nepal, Philippines, Peru, Cuba. Things are rough everywhere, but it seems that South America is hit harder than other areas by this crisis. There are many churches of our kind in Peru, and many of them are suffering. Please pray for them.
Thank you brother!
Bro. Raul

THE RELIF FUND IS BEING HANDLED BY "THE BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH" in PLANT CITY FLORIDA. SEE THIS LETTER FROM THEIR PASTOR:

The Bible Baptist Church Pastor:

“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:16-18.

“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body, what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” James 2:14-17.

Greetings Beloved of the Lord Jesus Christ:

As you may or may not know I had the great honor and privilege of being sent by The Bible Baptist Church of Plant City, FL to preach the gospel in the country of Peru in 2018 and 2019. The first trip, Bro. Raul Enyedi of Romania and myself were speakers at a seminar held in Pucullpa, Peru; the second trip, I was the sole speaker at a seminar in Punchauca, Lima, Peru. I was privileged to preach in Lima, Huanuco, Tingo Maria, Pucullpa, Arequipa.

A NEED:

The purpose for which I am writing to you is that The Bible Baptist Church of Plant City, FL has unanimously voted to have a “Temporary Peruvian Relief Fund”. Covid-19 restrictions set in place by the government of Peru and the actual virus itself have wreaked havoc on the nation of Peru. The churches of the Lord Jesus Christ are also affected. The people in Peru typically live day to day. Because of government restrictions they are not able to work. Many of them have no means where they are able to buy basic necessities, such as food.

I am writing to ask that you might seek the will of the Lord in helping us to “hold the rope.” I heard growing up the phrase, “What one of us cannot do, all of us together can do.” Thus, The Bible Baptist Church has already sent over $3,000.00 to aid the saints of Peru, but there is still a great need. I have been in contact with two Pastors: Brother Daniel Matsuda, pastor of The Family Baptist Church in Arequipa, Peru and Brother Caleb Victor Olortegui Ramos Pastor of Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Punchauca, Lima, Peru. I have great confidence in these brothers. I have gotten to know both of them really well. I sat on Brother Caleb's presbytery for His ordination and preached the charge to the church he is the pastor of when it was organized. I took Spanish lessons for 3 months over the internet from Brother Daniel Matsuda. So for 5 nights a week we spent about 1.5 hours with each other. I know these men and I trust them. The Bible Baptist Church trusts them and we support their ministries on a monthly basis. So these two men I trust.

The Plan:

Myself and the assistant Treasurer will keep a detailed record of all the funds received by The Bible Baptist Church. We will then transfer funds weekly to Peru. Brothers Caleb and Daniel will be the recipients of the money in Peru. They will then disperse the funds in the country of Peru to whom the Lord through His eternal Spirit leads them to do so. I have already noted my trust in these men. I will not micro-manage these brethren. We are going to put our trust in the Lord and trust that these two saints of the Lord are going to move the money to whom the Lord is leading. The Bible Baptist Church of Plant City, FL will be paying for any and all “transfer fees”.

What You Need To Do:

First of all Pray. Maybe even Fast. Pray and fast. For the saints in Peru. Pray for the direction of the Lord.

Second, If the Lord leads you to aid in helping the brethren in Peru please:

Make Check Payable To:
The Bible Baptist Church Memo: “Peru”.

Mail To:
The Bible Baptist Church
“Peru Love-Offering”
809 Charlie Griffin Rd.
Plant City, FL 33566

This “Temporary Peruvian Relief Fund” is “TEMPORARY”.
Once the need is no longer needed, we will then discontinue the “Temporary Peruvian Relief Fund”.
