Don Pedro’s story highlights the necessity of preaching God’s Word to those in need of moral and social regeneration. His ministry as a pastor and an evangelist is an outstanding model of selfless, loving dedication and proven leadership. His courageous, yet tender responses to victims of sin and deception will impress all who read the record of his life.
His 70 years of faithfulness to Christ give us a beautiful and almost unparalleled pattern for today’s ministers of the truth. From the beginning, Don Pedro had a particular appeal to young people. Read here of how he dealt with personal concerns, how he handled issues of family and church, and how he carried out the great mission of his life – introducing men and women to the Savior and nurturing them in the Scriptures.
His warm and transparent friendship, modest lifestyle, and caring spirit still draw us closer to the sovereign Lord who, in his grace, blessed Colombia and regions beyond through this God-fearing giant from Quindio.
Biographical narratives, photography, and overall compilation by Jim Smyth.
It was most edifying to read this six chaptered book about a an evangelical Christian and his ministry in Colombia.
Pedro Gutierrez highlights major remembrances about his ministry and wives’ work (his first wife died and he remarried a second wife). A biographical supplement entitled “The Modest Giant From Quindío” is include by Jim Smyth. His sons have also written the preface and contributed their tributes of their father.
I thoroughly appreciated the End Notes outlining the evangelicalism and Missionary alliance organizations in Colombia.
I did not realize Colombia had compulsary mililtary service to those who turn 18 in their country. I also did not realize the violence between Catholics and Bible societies between 1846-1958 in the country either.
This document really puts in perspective what is persecution for one’s faith and what is not. In America in the last two to three hundred years, but most predominatly the last century, Protestant faiths have not experienced what members of evangelical beliefs have in countries around the world.
