Each Tuesday night in Arequipa, Peru, a group of musicians comprised of MTW missionaries and Peruvian believers gathers to practice Andino-style music and play songs they've written. They're preparing for outreach events where they plan to share the gospel and build relationships. They hadn't yet gone public because they thought they needed more practice-but God saw no need to wait.
On a recent Tuesday night, the group heard a knock on the door. A passing pedestrian had heard them playing and asked to join in-he loved Andino music. The group welcomed him, and after playing together for a while, they shared with him their gospel purpose. The young man was interested in the music, but not the gospel.
In just a few weeks, however, the Holy Spirit began to work in this man's heart. Today he has a newfound faith in Christ, and last Sunday he played with the group in the worship service.
