1st Annual Spiritual Life Conference

Taken from the Desktop of Allen Bradford….

We were all blessed abundantly at our 1st Annual Spiritual Life Conference this past weekend in Trujillo.

We enjoyed Dr. and Mrs. Knox Chamblin immensely – they are a great source of inspiration to us. All of the men, and several of the wives, were privileged to study under Knox while at Reformed Theological Seminary. This weekend, all of us were impacted and encouraged by his gift of practically applying his vast knowledge of the Scriptures, especially his understanding of Greek, as we looked at Luke 10-11; Revelation 22; and Colossians 2. The women were also blessed to share separate time with Ginger, gleaning much from her wisdom and encouragement in “Our Journey”, as they focused on Ephesians 4.

We also enjoyed precious fellowship, enjoying the rarity of having the entire team together in one place. We even took an afternoon off with all our families to enjoy a recreation center in the countryside. During our conversations and reminiscences throughout the weekend, we were reminded anew of God’s faithful work among us as a team since Peru Mission began meeting together in Jackson, MS, in 1995.

During one of our breaks, we also enjoyed a lively game of Peru Mission Feud, a spin-off of Family Feud based on email surveys sent in by various friends of Peru Mission. We played guys versus the girls, and had to state the most popular answers for questions like:

1. The best thing about living in Peru is: (#1 answer: The Peruvian people).
2. A frustrating thing about living in Peru is: (#1 answer: The language barrier).
3. Name what you miss least about the USA: (#1 answer: The hectic pace of life).
4. Name what you miss most about the USA: (#1 answer: Family and friends).

The weekend ended with an English worship service, followed by lunch and an especially fervent singing time during our traditional Sunday singing, praising our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We want to share with you a slideshow of the weekend, which we’ve set to “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” beautifully sung by Knox and Ginger’s daughter, Claire Holley, with backup vocals by Knox himself . . .

  2. Hey guys!That was a great slide show! Brian and I are jealous of your time with the Knox and Ginger – it sounds like it was a blessed time for your team. We’re gearing up for our First Annual California Conference on Reformed Theology (www.calreformed.org) Mike Ross will be one of the speakers!We love you guys and pray for you and your ministry!Anna for the Peterson clan

  3. Thanks so much for creatively sharing with us how God is blessing your time with Knox & Ginger. We’ve been praying! I wonder if y’all have heard that Sullie Ku has gone home to be with the Lord. Sept. 6 was her “graduation” date. (Knox & Ginger may want to know, if they do not already.) It was great to read the previous comment from Anna (Hi to the Petersons!) and hear that Mike Ross will be speaking at their conference! I’m so thankful for the positive family and team time everyone is having there. In our Refuge, Patty Fultz, Trinity, Jackson, MS
