A Message from my father, a missionary in Peru

My father and his wife, Doris (my Mom passed away in 2005), are missionaries in Peru and he sends me regular notices. I share this one from yesterday (July 14, 2012).  It's heart breaking.
"He that has pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he has given will He pay him again." PROVERBS 19:17

Many of the folks we minister to live in extreme poverty. Last Sunday in Ferrenafe in our Worship service we had in attendance a young woman that was pregnant. Her name is Rosa, in her 20's. Yesterday she gave birth to a baby boy, barely getting to the hospital in time.

Rosa has no mother and her father has remarried. When told his daughter had given birth he said he didn't care for her and it didn't matter to him if she died. She had been living with him. The father of the child wants nothing to do with her and says that it's not his child.

Since Rosa has no money the Hospital won't let her out until the hospital and Doctor bills are paid----the more days in, the larger the debt. Ana Torres, our school teacher at our Pre-school collected from friends about 30 dollars to help out because the new born didn't even have baby clothes ready.. Ana also took Rosa some food. The hospital does not provide and families have to take care of their own; otherwise they won't eat.

I do not write to ask you for money. I write to let you know what part of our ministry is about; and also to thank you for your contributions to PENNIES FOR PERU. We will help Rosa ASAP and the new born child. And, of course, we will give her the blessed hope that is only found in the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

That is our thought for the day.

In Christ, Brother Carlos July 13, 2012
If you would like to make a contribution to help Rosa and others who are desperate like her, here are the instructions:
The checks should be made to "Miracle Village International" and mailed to 
P.O. BOX 890
Melbourne, AR. 72556
C/O David Miller
On the memo line on the check you need to note that the money is to go to Carlos or Pennies for Peru or whatever particular cause you want the money used for or you can include a note with the check explaining how you want the money used. 
All contributions are tax deductible and David Miller will send you a receipt for tax purposes. About once a month, he wires money to Villa Milagro and Nancy Diaz then puts the money in the accounts as designated. Any questions, email David Miller at this email address: David Miller .
