Prayer for Peru

I'm finally back again. Once again it's been a while since I've last posted. I've been rather undisciplined at blogging consistently. Anyways, I've been praying a lot about God's leading after GCBI. It's coming to a close soon and I need to know where God will have me next.

Just the other day my Mom called me and told me about a mission called 40/40. It's a mission out of Extreme Nazarene and their goal is to plant 120 churches within an 18 month period. There will be 40 pairs of missionaries. Each pair consists of 1 American and 1 Peruvian. I started reading up on it and almost started crying. I believe God gave me a burden for it in that moment in time so I ended up applying and am currently awaiting a response from them.

If I get accepted I'll spend 3 months learning Spanish. Then 6 months of missionary training. Lastly 18 months of mission work in which I and my Peruvian partner will plant 3 churches.

If you read this and God gives you a nudging to pray for me, please do so. This is a big commitment for me and I'll need lots of prayer to back me up. Thanks!

Hey Gary!

I stumble upon your blog randomly today and was like hey i know him!! It's good to hear that GCBI is being a vessel in helping God teach you things about Himself and His Word. Its encouraging to see how much you're learning and I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you and that God will make His will clear for you. Trusting God is an exciting journey that is full of unexpected twists and turns (as you know)!! And this missions trip sounds so awesome! I definitely be praying!

Your sister in Christ,
Bethany Knepper
