Dave Guiles, coordinator of the Charis Alliance, the world-wide network of Charis congregations, has sent this news that he shared with members of the Alliance.
It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the homegoing of brother Paris Peña, who represented Guatemala during several Charis International Forums, from COVID 19. He joins Pastor Ray Lobo, an influential and godly Brazilian who passed away a few weeks ago. Ray served as leader of the national ministerium. And Pastor Armando Vierya, older brother of Arnulfo (who represented Mexico at both regional and international Charis meetings). Armando served in Ensenada and was especially instrumental in mobilizing young couples into ministry, including into many church plants throughout southern Mexico. He passed away last year, as the pandemic was first invading Mexico. Psalm 116:15.
It seems we cannot bear to lose any more leaders!
While COVID-19 continues to bring pain and suffering to most of the world, the situation is especially severe in Latin America. Please mobilize your constituencies to intercede for our churches and leaders.
Committed to fostering a global movement!
Coordinator, The Charis Alliance
