Missionary Update: The Stantons in Peru

November 2, 2011

Dear friends and family,

We had two young women place their trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior over the past two months at the Calvary Baptist Mission-Church here in the Andes Mountains of Huánuco, Peru.  Looking over my records it appears the median age for someone trusting Christ at this work has been between eighteen and twenty-five years of age.  This mission work has an excellent group of young folks that are hungry to learn more of God’s Word.

Recently I began a Discipleship class on Saturday afternoon at their request.  Four young men and four young women attend and eagerly participate as I teach them how to disciple others in the truths of God’s Word.  When I told them they would receive a Certificate in Discipleship from the Baptist Institute of Biblical Studies they got excited; until I told them their final test would be – they had to disciple me!  A few of the girls looked petrified but they all rose to the challenge and are working hard.  Please pray for this enthusiastic group of young Christians that they will continue to devote themselves to their studies.  They are the future of this work.

Anita and I have always been involved in planting new churches during our twenty-nine years here in Peru.  Over the years, we have seen numerous churches in the States as well as some here in Peru flourish for a time, only to split, die or cripple themselves in legalism.  I attribute this to pastors assuming that their congregations are sound in doctrine because they have taught sound doctrine from the pulpit.  A fatal assumption for sure!  I read somewhere years ago that only fifteen percent of the people are actually tuned in and listening at any one moment during the preaching service.  Folks can be looking right at you and be thinking about lunch, football, the naughty child behind them, their aching feet or any number of other distractions.  There is a tendency for the human mind to drift in and out while being taught, whether at school or at church.  Nothing can properly replace the true learning experience of personal instruction where dialogue and questioning are part of the process.  Testing, whether formal or informal, is necessary to insure that knowledge of Biblical truth has been retained.  Interactive Sunday School classes, small study groups, or other special teaching venues are crucial for a church to insure its preservation and future growth.  In Acts 20:20 the Apostle Paul said he not only taught publicly but also from house to house; he kept back nothing that would have been profitable for their spiritual growth.  Teaching and working with small groups of believers week after week may not be as flashy or as fun as big Bible conferences or weekend retreats, but it will insure the lasting and solid spiritual growth of a church.

Enough sermonizing!   Anita has begun a cooking class after church service on Sunday afternoons.  She uses this venue to teach them about personal hygiene and the importance of washing the fruits and vegetables and using only treated or boiled water.  Most of these poor saints always seem to be sick and no very little about these matters.  The bonus is they also have learned how to make cornbread!  You southerners will be glad to know that now, in this part of Peru; cornbread is becoming commonplace on the table!  Next week she is going to teach them how to make homemade strawberry jam to go with the cornbread.  She is a marvel and loved by all, especially me!

In HIM by HIS grace,
Sheridan and Anita Stanton

BFM Spring Conference (Tuesday Night)

The second night of the 51st Annual BFM Spring Conference was such an encouragement (at least to your church secretary). We were blessed by two more sermons about “Pressing Forward for the Glory of God.” There’s absolutely no way I can do them justice here, but I will share with you a few notes I scribbled down.

Bro. Roger Tate, missionary to Kitale, Kenya, East Africa
Pressing Forward for the Glory of God (John 6)

Pressing forward involves struggle and resistance. Take an apple press for example. The apple is pressed to produce juice. It goes through a transformation. It’s painful and can be messy, but look at the result.

What are we willing to go through as God’s people for the prize? “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14) What is the prize? Jesus Himself!

Why do people come to Christ? Is it because He is the prize…or for other reasons?

1)Why did the first century Jews of this passage follow Christ? (John 6:1-14) Because of what they thought they could get physically from Him.
vs. 15, 26, 33-34: They wanted to make Jesus King so He could provide miraculously for their physical needs. They were getting their bellies filled and wanted to be continually fed with His physical bread.
HE IS THE BREAD OF LIFE. (vs. 35) He multiplied the loaves so they would see that.

2)Why do Kenyans come to Christ?
Unfortunately, many of them follow Christ because of what they think they will get from the missionary…not because Jesus is their prize. {At this point Bro. Tate shared his vision for their ministry…a vision that involves simplicity in the Gospel, deep relationships, and house churches.}

3)Why do Americans come to Christ?
A lot of them come to Him to have their psychological needs met…all for selfish reasons.

4)Why did you come to Christ?
Are you valuing and prizing Him as highly as you should be? (vs. 66-68)
Peter gets it right in vs. 68!
>Lord…He has to be Lord, not just the One who fills your pockets or bellies!
>Where else are we gonna go? You have the words of eternal life.

Strive to show others that Christ is the Bread of Life rather than trying to fill their physical bellies with bread.

{At this point in the service, we enjoyed the most lovely special by Julie Tate, Emily, Amy, & Josiah, singing “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us.” Video hopefully coming soon!}

Bro. Paul Kirkman, Pastor Emeritus fromFairborn, Ohio
Pressing Forward for the Glory of God (James 4:13-15)

{Sidenote: I wish I would’ve recorded some of Bro. Kirkman’s jokes. He has the quickest wit of just about anyone I’ve ever met. And that’s saying a lot. At almost 90 years old, I was amazed at his stamina and his sharp mind!}

If you’re gonna press forward, before you go forward, you better get a good start. So, if you knew you were going to die this year, what would you do? Here’s what Bro. Kirkman said he would do.

1)Know that you have a real and vital relationship with Christ.
How do you know? Romans 8:1. If you’re a believer you’re in a happy condition (no condemnation) and a happy position (in Christ Jesus).
Ephesians 2:8-10; Ephesians 1:5-6; Romans 8:38-39- No separation!
Ephesians 1:6-7- You are accepted in the Beloved!!!! (No “accept Jesus as your personal Savior. He’s the one that accepts us. You receive Him. He accepts you!)

2)Right relationship and fellowship with other believers in your congregation and in the Baptist faith
LOVE one another. Love is an action, not a feeling. For God so loved that He gave. It’s not optional! It’s commanded. Is it optional to murder? Is it optional to commit adultery? In the same way, it’s not optional to love your neighbor. They will know we are Christians by our love. (Matthew 5:23-24; Matthew 18) Make things right with fellow believers.

3)Right relationship with those who believe differently from us

4)Live your life to count for God each day. (Philippians 1:20) My body is mine by a relationship and God’s by ownership.

5)Finish your course! (2 Timothy 1:6; 1 Timothy 2:5)
Hebrews 12:1-2- The race that is set before us is a predestined, personal, unique race. As you run, look to Jesus!
Long to hear those words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

And we do it all for the glory of God!

The brighter the light shines at the source, the brighter the light shines out.

1 Corinthians 10:31- Whatever you do, do it to make God look good!

Mission Update: The Radfords in Kenya

Nathan, Carrie and McKenna Radford

Dear praying friends,                                                                              April 6, 2010
 
Another month has come and passed so quickly, and we thank the Lord for His blessings to us. We would appreciate your continued prayers for us here, both within the ministries, and also for our safety and health. We appreciate so much each person who prays for us, as this is much needed. We also wish to thank everyone who sacrificially supports this ministry with finances. You are a great blessing to us. This update will share current ministry progress as well as prayer requests.
 
We would appreciate your continued prayers for the ministry in Rafiki. I have been teaching and preaching the Word of God, and would desire prayer for this work. The Word of God has power and we trust it will bring the desired effects and changes in people’s lives when they hear and receive it. Hebrews 4:12 states “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” I have been teaching on many aspects of the church, and one major prayer request I have is that the Lord would provide faithful followers who look to Him and trust Him for their needs. D.L. Moody once said “Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.” We would appreciate your continued prayers for this ministry.
 
The Annex prison is continuing to go well. We are now over half finished with the course “Firm Foundations – from Creation to Christ.” The men seem to be really getting much from the teaching and growing spiritually. We want to thank each one of you who prays for, supports, and assists the ministry there. It would not be possible without your assistance and we thank the Lord for you.
 
Carrie and McKenna are both doing well. They both have birthdays this month, Carrie’s on the 15th and McKenna on the 26th. Lord willing, McKenna will be two years old, which doesn’t seem possible. What a joy it has been to have her in our family, and we would appreciate your continued prayers for each of us as we serve here in Kenya .
 
Please continue to pray for us and the many challenges here. We desire to be faithful to the work here, and faithful to the calling. 1 Corinthians 4:2 states “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” May we each be faithful to the work that God calls us to do, wherever that may be. God bless each of you.
 
Until next month,
Nathan, Carrie & McKenna Radford
Kitale, Kenya, East Africa

Mission Update: The Stantons in Peru

April 8, 2010
Dear Friends,
          March was another hectic month for Anita and me.  First I drove to Pucallpa (a town in the central jungle where we lived for seven years), in order to hold a week-end meeting with the Jordan Baptist church of Pucallpa.  This was the first church we started in Peru twenty-two years ago.  I enjoyed the time with Pastor Daniel Gonzales and his dear wife, Bertha.  It was good to see old, familiar faces once again.  Even though I enjoyed seeing the folks there, to be honest, it was very hard to preach while there; it seemed to me that there was a “heavy” spirit hanging over the meeting.  We had several decisions for Christ in spite of the difficulty.  It was a blessing to be able to drive over the newly paved road for most of the trip.  The last time I drove to Pucallpa the road was so bad, the dash-board of my van shook loose and rested on our laps!  There are still some bad sections but I made the trip in about eight hours when it used to take fourteen.

Thirty-five pastors attended a workshop Bro. Sheridan led about using computers in the ministry.

          After returning to Huánuco on Sunday the 7th, I began another Institute class on Tuesday morning the 9th.  We only had 35 pastors show up for the class but we had a great time.  Instead of daily lectures I made the class more of an interactive work-shop dealing with “Computers and the Ministry”.  We spent the week teaching and practicing putting together MS PowerPoint hymn presentations; complete with accompaniment sound tracks.  They each got to return to their homes with over one hundred hymn presentations along with a lot more material.  It was a great week and Anita did all the cooking as usual.  I still think many of them come just for her cooking instead of my teaching!!

          In my last letter I mentioned the need of funds for purchasing some property for our newest mission work, the Calvary Mission Church of Huánuco.  We have rented a temporary place for three months, just down the street from where we were.  This gives us a little more time to locate the property the Lord has waiting for us.  We just haven’t found it yet!!  The need is still great to raise the funds for purchasing the property when the Lord reveals it to us.  Please pray with us about this and give as the Lord leads.  Thank you.

The Stantons and some of the people from their mission work have taken clothes, food and water several times to those affected by a landslide in a nearby town.

          On the April 1st a huge landslide came down upon the small town of Cancejos (about one hour from Huánuco).  Seven people were killed and still some others have not been found yet.  The road (Central Highway) was blocked and traffic backed up for about five miles on both sides.  I was trying to get to Tingo Maria for a special meeting but after sitting for three hours on the road I realized I would never make it on time, so I turned around and went back home.  Friday the 2nd I was able to make it to Tingo Maria and drive through the devastation in Cancejos.  The village has about ten displaced families living in tents set up by the Civil Defense.  Please remember these folks in your prayers as they struggle with their losses.

A massive landslide struck the nearby town of Ambo. Twenty-seven people were killed and 40 remain missing.

 While I was in Tingo Maria for the meeting at the Bethel Baptist Church, another massive landslide struck the town of Ambo (twenty minutes away on the other side of Huánuco).  Twenty-seven are known dead and close to forty are still missing.  Entire two-story homes were completely buried beneath the rock and mud.  One of the biggest tragedies in the Ambo landslide was a Christian Missionary Alliance church that was having a prayer meeting when the mudslide came upon them and buried them all alive.  The numbers vary from fifteen to twenty present in the meeting.  Anita and I, along with the folks from our mission work, have taken clothes, food and water on two occasions thus far to the temporary tent cities set up by the Civil Defense.  Ambo has about one hundred tents set up for the displaced families.  In a few more days we plan on taking personal sanitary items (soap, tooth brushes and paste, etc.) and underwear.  I am also hoping to get several boxes of bibles to distribute among those that have lost everything.  In a few more months we will try and help some of the families build a new home.  Please be in prayer for these poor people that disease will not start and spread.  The doctors are worried that any day now an epidemic might break out. 

Until next month. 

In HIM by HIS grace,
Sheridan and Anita Stanton

Missionary Update: The Stantons

Dear Friends,

stantonsJuly was just as action packed as the month of June! In last month’s letter I reported on the visiting mission team from Hiddenite, North Carolina. The week after they left I traveled north of Lima to preach a four day meeting for the Faith Baptist Church of Huaral. We had a great time preaching and teaching on the Exchanged Life in Jesus Christ. The following week I preached in the anniversary services of the Zion Baptist Church here in Huánuco. It was a true blessing to have been in both of these meetings. One week after the anniversary services I traveled to Peru’s capital city of Lima once again to meet our second summer mission team. This group was mainly from the Grace Baptist Church of Taylor, Michigan with three joining from the Storms Creek Baptist Church of Ironton, Ohio. It was the first time for the Grace Baptist Church to take on a summer mission project and they did an outstanding job. There were fourteen of them on the team and they not only worked hard and shared God’s love everywhere they went but they also laughed a lot while having a great time. They will be missed and we hope they will come back again sometime in the future. Like the first mission team they also helped the Grace Baptist Church of Huánuco build a security wall around the property. Digging ditches with picks and shovels and then filling the ditches with concrete and rocks was exhausting work but they really seemed to enjoy it! The traditional soccer match with Americans and Peruvians playing went as expected! I’m sure you can guess the outcome! On Wednesday night Pastor Matt Brooks brought a moving message at the Central Baptist Church here in Huánuco. I had the privilege of translating for him. After the work days we goodbye to Huánuco and began our journey to Cusco and Machu Picchu.sas4sas2

While in Cusco we visited the Berea Baptist Mission pastored by our Baptist Missionary friends Jason and Rebecca Reinhardt. Pastor Gary Harrah preached on Sunday morning with me translating. What a blessing the service was for all present! From there the team travelled by bus and train to Machu Picchu (which is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World). Machu Picchu is an amazing place and pictures just cannot describe the experience adequately. After arriving back in Cusco we flew back to Lima then began our trip on down the Pacific coast to the town of Paracas where the group was scheduled to travel eleven miles out into the ocean to the Ballesta Islands but the sea was choppy that day and the port authority would not allow any boats out. So we had a great seafood lunch and then continued on down the coast to the Huacachina oasis. This team, like the June team, had an incredible time sand surfing and dune buggy riding in the sand dunes that stretch for as far as the eye can see.sas6

The next day our dear friends left Peru, heading back to Michigan. They made a wonderful impression and we hope the trip challenged and excited them to do even more for missions there at home. Hosting mission teams is exhausting work but also very, very rewarding for Anita and me. We certainly enjoyed having them with us and we hope they will come back. We thank the Lord for their love and concern for the dear saints of the Lord here in Peru.
