Welcome to My Mission's Page!
Hello! My name is Devin Ward. First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising and support page; whether you are here to just learn more about me and this mission, or to give I want you to know that your prayers and support means a ton to me.
Who I am, and my destination:
My heart's desire is to declare the Gospel of Christ in all nations to all people wherever I am given the opportunity. God has blessed me with the opportunity to partner with an incredible ministry in Peru, and an amazing church. I will assist in translation (being bilingual myself) for my team in addition to sharing the gospel and assisting the needs of the people that we come into contact with. In my last journey to this region of the world, I was able to personally reach out and minister to hundreds of Peruvians one on one and in groups; our team witnessed hundreds of conversions, physical healings, God moving in people's lives breaking free from spiritual chains and bondage, and were able to bring hope to many villages in despair.
This is a region of the world where Witchcraft abounds plentifully and oppresses villagers to this day. We are literally bringing light to a dark, dark part of the world. In addition to the practice of witchcraft, drugs, sex trafficking, poverty and sickness plagues the communities of this region. In the midst of the darkness, God's presence is felt strong where ever we are. There is so much work to be done, which we are able to achieve along side the Arimborgo's ministry with their reputation in the communities to reach out to severely impoverished and spiritually broken people. (To learn more about this ministry go to: http://www.arimborgo.org/)
Just a quick look at what this ministry does and how we've help them specifically:One of my favorite parts of this ministry we work with is their Jungle School, where they go out, find and train individuals to be pastors from various tribes and groups, deep within the Amazon Jungle, and send them back to their people to plant churches and preach in their native tongue and establish a church when finished. We have spent lots of hard work and time into developing and building this school from the ground up with them, which is flourishing. The Arimborgo family has a thriving church reaching people living in all sorts of conditions, from various backgrounds, and are a bright light shining in a dark city.
In June of 2019, I will be heading back to the Amazon Jungle and the city of Iquitos, Perú. Our team with NLC Missions will be partnering with Arimborgo Ministries once again to reach people with the Gospel for Christ. I can't express to you how much I appreciate this ministry and how important their work is! This organization has well over 700 known church plants deep in the heart of the Amazon attributed to them due to their ministry school and church efforts. This year, we will be working to plant our own church in the town of Nauta, right outside of Iquitos and deliver the Gospel message to its people, and establish a local church for this community. We will be also traveling to many other communities in addition to our church plant, giving out food, and just ministering to the needs of the people there.
When in the field, going into villages and towns, we usually attract a large crowd, with games for children and a special program which delivers the Gospel through open air preaching along with testimonies by individuals in our team, followed by prayer with the people individually, one on one, for whatever needs they may have. Please consider partnering with me, and donating to be a part of this great mission and ministry opportunity. Many of the details of the exact needs of the communities that we will be working to help meet will be discussed and worked out during our stay in the country, but for now our main objective is prayer that the Peruvian people's hearts will be open, and that through our preparation we will be effective in our outreach and win many new souls for the Kingdom.
When you donate financially, you are playing a huge part in every salvation and every life touched on this trip, investing into the Kingdom of God. Your gift, in addition to helping me travel, goes toward paying for food supplies for families, continued construction and expansion for the Ministry school (which all materials are bought locally so your dollar goes extremely far for this part of the world), and any other needs that may arise during our trip.
I am asking for prayers and monetary donations in increments of $20, $50, $100, and $250 or whatever you are able to do on your part.
(All gifts are tax deductible, with paper receipt upon request.)
Thank you very much for your continued support.
