Taking the Gospel to the Andes
Christmas is coming and children will hear the Good News
Rumi Rancho looks forward to Christmas each year to take the gospel to remote regions and bless kids in the Andes Mountains––also in our churches and around Rumi Rancho. Many have never heard of Jesus and never receive gifts at Christmas. This year makes 20 years since we started our mountain trips. Now, through one of the churches we helped start, Bolivians reach their own people and the children of these hard to reach places. We are blessed to continue being a part of God’s plan to reach the unreached.
“Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…” Matthew 16:15-16 NIV
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35 NIV
This year, we venture on a new project to gift books to children along with other gifts, food, and bread––and always sandals made of old tires (typical footwear in the mountains.)
My First Books to be Printed in Bolivia in Spanish
The first book to be printed here in Bolivia is in memory of my best friend who resides in Heaven now, Louise (Marne) Vimislicky. Her family sent a gift (in lieu of flowers) and this idea was born. Louise loved our mountain ministry, and I’m sure her dimples are visible knowing kids will get books about Jesus this Christmas and throughout the coming year.
Over the years, Rumi Rancho has ministered in a plethora of ministries: children’s ministries, church planting, adult Bible studies, and Quechua outreach to mountainous areas to name just a few. God blesses us and His work through you, His people, and we are forever grateful for your partnership. Now we venture once more into unknown territories to share the gospel through one more avenue to reach children for Jesus. Thanks to Louise’s family and friends who helped with the cost to this point, this project is about to go from a dream to reality. But, now the cost of printing is the only obstacle standing in the way. The book is about our friendship.
Prayers Please for Printing
Pray with us for our book project for gifting books to kids this Christmas. Soon, the Pegtales Series will join the Really Rare Rabbits Series in Spanish so we can reach more children with stories of Jesus. Pray that we’ll have the funds in the next month to go to print here in Bolivia with Mejores Amigas y Gusanos: Libro 1 of the series. It is now published and available on Amazon. With the book rights from all my (Peggy) books returned to me, we are now able to print books here for Bolivia, thus avoiding shipping costs and customs charges.
We covet your prayers, knowing God answers and supplies for His work. The Pegtales Series is now available on Amazon in English, (soon all in Spanish too), and any proceeds from the books will also go towards printing books in Bolivia for this 2019 Christmas project.
