Five members of First Baptist Church, Pell City, and two members of Cropwell Baptist Church, both in St. Clair Baptist Association, traveled to Peru in September. The trip was coordinated by e3 Partners missions network organization and led by David Chism and Diane Harrington.
The missions team partnered with local churches to evangelize in the streets of Urubamba and neighboring areas. With the help of interpreters, team members presented the gospel in picture form.
They made 494 gospel presentations, resulting in 178 professions of faith. Those who accepted Christ were invited to small group meetings to reinforce and strengthen their faith and commitment.
“I think seeing the receptivity of people to listen to the gospel was the most special part of the trip for me,” said Tim Gold, minister of education/administration for First, Pell City. “People were willing to listen. [They] thanked us for our time even if they didn’t receive Christ.”
