Brothers and sisters, friends of the IPC (Iglesia Presbiteriana de Colombia).
Receive our greetings in the name of the Prince of Peace, our Lord Jesus Christ.
We write on behalf of the Presbyterian Church of Colombia to share our frustration with the results of the plebiscite that rejected the accords between the government and the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia).
We want to express to all of you our gratitude for your unconditional support of the IPC and for the quest for peace in Colombia. We know that all those efforts have not been in vain and that peace will prevail in the end.
It is for this reason that today, more than ever, we invite you to continue accompanying us with your prayers and actions. You can be sure that in this corner of the world the church still stands firm, guided by the light of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit. In our local congregations, our educational institutions, and through our social service work, we shall continue our efforts to build a better country.
“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8–9, New Living Translation).
In kindred love,
The Reverend Martha Muñoz, Moderator
The Reverend Diego Higuita Arango, General Secretary
