Update on Pastor Teodolfo
As our Peru team prepares to depart on Saturday, I thought that everyone might like an update on our friend, Pastor Teodolfo.
You will recall that he was in a horrific auto accident a couple of months ago. The care in which he was traveling left the roadway and careened down the side of a mountain. Apparently, all others in the car perished. He received major trauma, including head injuries.
As best I could translate from Edmin’s last message, Teodolfo has awakened, but has tremendous difficulty with his vision. He remains hospitalized in Lima. I cannot imagine the financial catastrophe this will wind up being for him and his family when the city hospital bills come due.
But, meanwhile … we pray for his continued recovery. He is a wonderful man of God, a faithful preacher of the Gospel, and an effective church planter. We need fifty more men like him in Pachitea.
Side Note – If you look at our “slider” at the top of our main page, you will see Teodolfo! He is the one baptizing people in the lake in Peru! Pretty cool.
