Steins to Peru

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.   

2 Corinthians 4:7

Our Gospel Treasure


We have the marvelous opportunity to serve as ministers of the gospel message. Each week we travel to different churches and share with them the truth of God's Word and the power of God as displayed in His work in Peru. What a privilege.


Thank you for continuing to pray for us and giving financially to support this work. We are amazed every day with the privilege we have of serving our Great Savior.

Safety Traveling


We traveled to Pennsylvania at the end of February to present our ministry in four churches, solicit more meetings in that area, and catch up with some friends from our Seminary days. We were home for two days and then left for a missions conference in Illinois. So, in three weeks we traveled nearly 3,000 miles. We praise God for good meetings, good health, and no vehicle problems.



Quick Facts about Peru


Peru is one of the most unique places on earth. Don't believe us? Consider the following: 


Peru is home to both the driest metropolitan area (Lima) and the driest desert on earth (the Atacama). Peru is also home to the Amazon Rainforest, parts of which have received more than 49 feet of rain in a one year, making it one of the wettest place on earth. 

Separating Peru's deserts and rainforest are the Andes Mountains. Mount Huascaran is the highest peak in the tropical world at 22,205 feet, and the Cotahuasi Canyon, at 11,488 feet deep, is the world's deepest. 

Praise and Prayer


We have added three churches and one family to our financial support team since our last prayer letter. We praise God for our new support!


We are now at 23.5%.


Caleb has traveled to several pastor's conferences recently and has made some good contacts for future meetings.


Caleb will be traveling to several more conferences in the coming months to find new meetings. Pray for safety and good contacts.


We have several other churches that would like to take us on soon. Pray that God will provide for their needs so that they can partner with us.


Pray that God will continue to provide meetings in the right churches for us.


Pray that God will allow us to be  an encouragement and a blessing to the people in the churches we visit.




A Special Blessing


We recently spent some time with some dear friends. As we talked about our ministry, God challenged them to invest with us in Peru. We are so overjoyed that they have partnered with us for $10 a month. That may not seem like a lot, but it is a sacrifice that God will honor. Every little bit helps us on our way, and we know that God honors those who give from the heart.      


If you would like to partner with us financially (either as a church or an individual), please let us know so we can send you information.     

Thank you for your vital part in our ministry. God bless.


Until all have heard,

Caleb, Ecko, Joe, Jack, and Isabel Stein
