Today Pastor Ezequiel and his family arrived in the city of Iquitos and wanted to share a moment to talk about the wonderful things that the Lord does. He is very encouraged by the 365 program and knowing that there are people in the world who care and pray for him, his family and his congregation. He enthusiastically told us about the work of the church in his community and the missionary work to other communities. After a long conversation he had to say goodbye until next opportunity. God bless Pastor Ezequiel.

Pastor Cesar had also been invited to Pastor Hildebrando's vigil. He attended along with 40 members of his congregation. We shared some time together talking about his plans for the church and also the plans within the 365 program. He told me the need to finish his house and I told him that we would pray for that purpose. The day after the vigil we said goodbye and I asked him that we can communicate more often.

A few days ago I had received the invitation from Pastor Hildebrando to preach at the scheduled vigil in his church. In addition, 5 more congregations from other towns of the Tahuayo river were invited. It was a lot of blessing.

It was really quite an adventure to be able to travel on Pastor Hildebrando's boat, who took the time and energy to accompany me on a 5-hour boat ride to the most remote towns to find more members of the 365 program. During the trip we were able to share experiences and visit different towns. We were able to share the word of God in one of these villages. The 365 program is a blessing!

It was a great joy to be able to meet with Pastor César and find him next to the river bank and under a tree reading his Bible. I shared with him the benefits of the 365 program and he was very upbeat and happy. He told me that he had to move his house due to the constant erosion of the river bank but even so he does not lose heart. I encouraged him to keep in touch more frequently and share the great things the Lord is doing in his ministry.

Pastor Eber is very enthusiastic for the work of God. After several days of recovering from some ailments I found him under his house sharing experiences with a brother from the church. He was happy to see me and we talked about many of his plans for this year within his ministry. I shared the details of the 365 program with him and he was very happy and he asked me to consider adding more pastors to the 365 program later on. I urged him to pray to the Lord and wait in Him. He was very encouraged by my visit.

Our inaugural team is serving in Peru along the Amazon River. While the team has been able to come alongside the local churches and serve with them as they impact the communities there, it has become even more evident that the churches and pastors need care. The spiritual warfare and challenges they face are extreme. PPM365 exists to hold up the arms of pastors as they continue to lead, to support churches as they continue to shine the light of Christ in the darkness, and to empower local staff to be there through it all.
You can follow along in the Trip Journal of this first team! What an amazing God we serve: https://www.ppm.org/mission-trip-journals/18223.

The Church along the Amazon River is alive and active. We are ready to serve and care for them 365 days a year.
The Church in Panguana I is shepherded by Pastor Jose. He has a great desire to see his village know Jesus Christ as Lord of everyone's lives!
PPM365 is a continuous effort to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church 365 days a year. By sponsoring a church's involvement in this program, pastors and ministry leaders will receive local support, training, and encouragement, leading to transformed communities in the name of Christ. Three areas of focus work in unison to accomplish this intentional effort.
The Local Church is the catalyst for reaching our world for Christ. It is God's master plan - to use His people to love and serve our world, sharing the Good News of grace by faith to all people.
An investment in a pastor is an investment in the Church. When pastors are healthy, both spiritually and physically, they are most able to lead a healthy, vibrant congregation
Communities benefit when the local church is thriving. From support and care to meeting physical needs; a healthy Church is vital to a community.
We estimate it will cost PPM $2400 per year ($200/month) to fund one partner in this program. A sponsorship allows for donors to personally support the care and ongoing ministry in a location.
