IMB missionary Joe Brewster worked with an indigenous church planter in Peru to help the National Indigenous Missions of Peru mission agency become self-supporting through the creation of a fish farm.
Because of Southern Baptist gifts, the team has constructed nine working fishponds with plans to build more which, if managed properly, should provide enough profits to nearly double the donations the organization currently receives!
The economic goal is for the fish business to sustain the local missions organization and support its own church planters and discipleship efforts throughout Peru and Brazil. Brewster and his team believe this effort will be key in reaching the lost and strengthening the national believers to take the Gospel throughout Peru and to other nations.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program helps missionaries encourage local believers to impact their communities with the Gospel of Jesus.
PRAY for the fish farms to provide for local believers so they have the resources to be fishers of men.
