Carlos and Celia Estrado are the spiritual "parents" of the movement I ministered for in Peru. The forty plus years they invested there at great personal sacrifice have resulted in over 400 churches, a Bible school, a Christian day school with several hundred students, and many other forms of ministry. Seeing the abundant fruit of their labors was a powerful reminder that when we sow our lives into God's will, it always bears a harvest!
"5 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. 6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves withhim." (Psalm 126:5-6, NIV)
