Doreen Pinkerton visits Peru to minister to the medical needs of others bringing them the good news of the Savior through worship and praise.
Two professors from Foothills Christian College and Seminary spent two weeks this summer ministering to Pastors in the nation of Kenya, Africa. Drs. Scott Eanes and Steve Gouge were among those honored to train 150 pastors in the Muranga’ Town area of Kenya.
Summer is always an exciting time for those in ministry whether they serve locally or in distant places. In July, Doreen Pinkerton and her family took part in a unique experience to serve in Peru in various locations along the Amazon River with the Amazon Medical Missions Team. In addition to medical attention, also brought preaching and teaching of the Bible and worship. As a local worship leader and song writer, Doreen was one of the leaders for the group’s worship team who taught sign language and Spanish worship songs. Local translators were able to translate her song “He is the Light” in Spanish for mission team. Ministering to church leaders in Peru, she gladly shared copies of her various albums to encourage them. Outside of ministering through her music, she also served as a medical nurse, dental assistant and counselor to those in need. Working alongside her husband, Dr. J. Pinkerton, and her children, together they helped the team’s efforts of a “whole person” ministry to reach many needs of the people both physically and spiritually. The Amazon Medical Mission Team not only fed the community, but also had a footwashing team who also provided clothing for the people. With over 65 decisions made for Christ, the mission team returned home safe and thankful for the many ways God used their gifts and abilities to minister to those in Peru.

Scott Eanes and Steve Gouge were among those honored to train 150 pastors in the Muranga’ Town area of Kenya. They worked in cooperation with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and the Kenya Baptist Convention. Dr. Eanes taught the subject of spiritual warfare while Dr. Gouge covered pastoral care and leadership. In addition to teaching, the professors visited a prison, where they showed the Jesus Film and shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There were approximately 60 commitments to Jesus Christ on this mission trip.
So many times we wait for something more to happen in our lives, when during this time of wait we have the opportunity to “be someone more.” In Ephesians 5, Paul encourages believers to “Be very careful, then, how you live —not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” For this reason, Foothills considers it an honor to offer in-depth studies to those who are seeking a deeper relationship with the LORD. His Word is essential to surviving and making the most of every day and every opportunity.
