Heroes (part 2)
I wrote in an earlier post that missionaries are my heroes. We had another one of my heroes in our church last week. Henry and Vangie Chavez have been missionaries since 1969. They went to Peru on a short-term trip to serve as translators for another missionary, and ended up staying for four years before they returned home for a furlough. They have planted more than 30 churches in Peru and in Ecuador, where they now serve. It is obvious that they love the precious souls of Ecuador and are committed to reaching them until the Lord allows them to return home to the states. May God bless them and continue to grant them the desire of their hearts--to see many churches established to reach Ecuador for Christ.
