Tippies Summer 2019

Some seasons in our lives are not by choice. We first arrived in the States February 20th of this year on a Home Missionary Assignment. Our goal is to obtain Daisy’s US citizenship. This has become an issue for us to be able to minister in Peru and travel back and forth from the USA. Well, we had to be here for 90 days before filing, and once filed, Daisy could not leave the States! This is a unique time for immigrations, so this immigration process required legal assistance! We appreciate and need your prayers and support! 

Taking advantage of our time here in the States, we have made ourselves available to share in several church venues, such as life groups, Bible studies, and main services about what the Lord is doing in Peru. We have had the opportunity to participate in some mission training meetings with the teams that came to Huacho this summer. We have been amazed about how the Lord has allowed us to share with many new churches on the West Coast of Florida, and seven churches in Southern California! And we want to say thank you to our host families! 

As our hearts ache from being away from our church and ministry in Peru, we can see God’s hand in all this. We have met a lot of people who have a heart for mission’s and we have been sharing that it’s not just a partnership with the Tippie’s, but participating in the Great Commission, and they are really partnering with the Lord. Normally we are never away from Peru for more than 5 weeks, and one of the things we are doing while in the States is encouraging people to come alongside us to raise mission awareness and see the need for faithful missionaries. One of the blessings from all of this is to see our church in Huacho take ownership and responsibility for forming new ministries in the local Rehab Center, English classes, and a rotating teaching schedule for our young Timothy disciples. This is a stretching time for them and for us as we see them mature! 

Ryan, my son and I went back to Peru to host three summer teams. We had the youth of Calvary Chapel Saving Grace partner with CC Yorba Linda, and CC Fullerton to host a youth conference and a surf camp! We had 85 campers and great surf. Erick, a Venezuelan refugee gave his heart to Christ at camp. We had a team from Youth Summer of Missions, and CC Lima that came to serve us by helping us prepare for and serve our summer teams. Our last team for the summer was from the Church at Viera. We were able to fully launch a new ministry using English as a second language. The team from CAV came to Huacho really prepared to go right into action as we hosted a weeklong event called Open Spanglish! The first night we had a very fun interactive game called “Name that Tune” and we ended that evening with an ice cream social to get people to come back! The next few nights we used practical ways for people to learn basic English using everyday experiences. This method was passed onto us by some missionaries from Malaysia. The last evening ended with a bang as we hosted a game show called Huacho Has Talent. Each team was given a choice of songs to sing, and this exceeded all our expectations and we had many new people wanting to learn English. Our English ministry is going to continue on Thursday evenings will complement our vision for our church café as we merge it with our new ministries. We have several new people attending our church because of the summer outreaches, and we ask you all to pray diligently for us!
