September Prayer Focus

Larry & Sandy Rockwell work among the Quechua people of Ancash. They spend time connecting with the native people in their places of work - mostly harvesting the fields. Larry is reaching out to both existing churches and the unchurched populations, trying to bridge a connection between the two. The Quechua people are responsive to him in his efforts to connect, particularly because he has been blessed with the ability to speak their native language.

The majority of the Quechua people are illiterate, so the best way to share the Bible with them is "Storying" - reading a section of the Bible in a narrative form. They have found that the people are quick learners by hearing, so sharing in this form has proven to be effective.

The Rockwells face many challenges in ministry. First is the assumed hatred between Evangelicals and Catholics (the primary denomination among the people). They have been challenged with the task of showing God's love across denominations and beliefs. Second is the challenge of proving that the Rockwells are there to love and serve the people and not for selfish gain. The Andean culture is one of reciprocity, so the people are accustomed to returning favors, etc. when given something.

Pray for the Rockwells:

  • For their ministry to be fruitful and effective among the Quechua people.
  • For the opportunity to meet physical needs among the people through medical teams and mercy outreach. 
  • For God to open the hearts and minds of those who are hearing the Bible through narrative in conversation.
  • For the Larry & Sandy's marriage to remain strong through the many challenges they face in ministry.
  • For God to grow their desire to strengthen what is good and already built there among the local churches and native believers.
