Bus Evangelist in Andes Peru

We bused to catch up, after a long story dead end in the Andes, and were treated by this sermon, in Spanish.

We could understand a few concepts of his sermon: Music of Satan, Movies and marijuana. He appeared be genuine, coming close to tears at one point. The bus seemed to be less than half with him, some clapping and singing hymns he led. He wasn’t Catholic, and that may have accounted for the lack of enthusiasm on the part of many. Evangelicals are making big strides in South America, and Catholics aren’t too happy.

  1. Wow! I am now saved. From what, I am not quite sure. Perhaps from having to ever see that clip again. Probably won’t show up on your highlight clips either. At least that wish will be in my prayers tonight. Love you guys anyways.

  2. My Spanish is limited, so I will take your word for the sermon! Interesting note about the “Evangelicals…” Prayers for your safety…and keep on posting. Love the vicarious experience….

  3. Bonnie,
    I think all of S. America was 100% Catholic until a few decades ago. Now other denominations are making inroads. We’ve seen Mormon missionaries also. I was using Evangelicals as a general overall term for those who evangelize, which would include Mormons and many others. It’s interesting.

    Dick, Next time I’ll try and do a translation for you. I’ll be on the lookout for JW’s. One of them made a negative comment about a small cross Claire has…who knows maybe he was a JW!

    Bonnie, Dick is a recovered Jehovah’s Witness.
