Calvary Chapel Iquitos

August / September Update

Hi Everyone,

Yes, here it is the August and September update.

We had a team from CC The Brook visit us on July 28th and they were here thru August 10th. They helped us with all the existing ministries. Like the women's ministry, with the youth and the children's ministries. Alexandra from another church also joined the team.

We were visited in August by a couple from CC Gracia, in Lima, Luis & Chipe Valdivia. They are in charge of the couples ministry there at their church and they blessed us with a two part couples seminar for the couples of our church. They were here in Iquitos on vacation visiting famly, but their servants hearts were ready to reach out to the couple at our church as well. Chipe taught at the Women's Meeting first and the ladies invited thier husbands to the two-day seminar.

Mike and Linda Milching also visited us with their two children. Mike's main minstry is showing the Jesus Movie, although this year he brought "The Passion" and it was really well recieved. Linda helped us with the Women's minstry.

I didn't get a lot of pictures from the Brook, but Mike Vasquez taught once at our mid-week service and once on the river at Panguana. Dolores and Zenovia taught the ladies at our Women's ministry and helped with our children's ministry in El Terminal and in Panguana.
