George Gomez, a student missionary serving in South Peru, was killed in a bus accident on July 5 (my birthday). He was part of an exploration team that helped gather information to determine the viability and ability of US lay-led mission teams to adopt unreached people groups in South Peru. Our church is one of those considering adopting an unreached people group in South Peru (Yauyos Quechua). I am leading a team into the Andes Mountains in twenty days, and on two of the day my team will be traveling via public transporation in Peru. Both of these things make the news of George Gomez’s death relevant to me. Here’s a story about his death. Please pray for the Gomez family. Pray also for Mike and Kathy Weaver, the REAPSouth coordinators, and these deal with a very complex, difficult situation.
