God’s Sower in Latin America

Harland Cary was called to receive his eternal reward earlier this week. Tomorrow (Saturday, September 12, 2014) many will celebrate his life at his memorial service. Brother Cary has blessed hundreds, if not thousands, through his life of 97 years. GNPI is just one of many ministries that has been blessed beyond words. Bob Gurwell, GNPI international coordinator, was just one of those impacted.

As a young man, Bob considered becoming a medical doctor until one day Brother Cary suggested he instead consider becoming a “doctor of the soul.” That conversation set a new course for the young Mr. Gurwell. This so typifies the impact of this working warrior for Christ!

Not that long ago, GNPI’s regional center in Piedras Negras, Mexico, did a video tribute to Harland Cary that we would like to share with you. Please praise the Lord for this life well lived, and pray for the extended family at this time of loss.

Harlan served as a board member for IDES during my tenure as manager. He and Herb Watkins went to Guatemala to continue our efforts in disaster relief in 1976- 78. They used funds from IDES to rebuild the town of San Raymundo. One of the young men, Queno Nij, became a Christian, went to Colegio Biblico, married Lori Pinney, and they went back to serve. A great work grew out of the combined efforts of Harlan and Herb with IDES. Morning Glory school and church planting led by Queno and Lori is one of the best mission efforts of our churches today.
