We went Miraflores to visit the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. When we parked the car, I looked up the street and walking towards us was Pastor Jorge. I first met Jorge in 2015 at the Ordination of Bishops and then subsequently at the Provincial Synod in Santiago in 2016. He is a gracious and humble man and is now the Dean of the Cathedral. He showed us around the Cathedral and all the buildings attached to the Cathedral. We sat in his office and chatted for a while, and then I read some scripture and prayed with him. After this we went to visit the Bible Society offices and shop in the centre of Lima. Here we met a couple of interesting people. One young lady who works for 'One Hope' the Billy Graham program and another Gentleman who is lead Pastor of the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches in Lima.
Anderson had to attend a short conference to do with an ecumenical movement in Lima with his father in law, so Gerry and I had a lovely couple of hours walking around the Aqua Park.
The plan for today (though it is still early enough for them to change) is that we are going to San Pedro and Cristo Redentor to visit some families and to meet the children and leaders of the Compassion International Project which runs in both churches. Please continue to pray for:
- Our safety and health
- Anderson and his car
- Pastor Jorge and his work at the Cathedral
- The Compassion Projects and the people we will meet today
