What is it like to be a Peruvian serving in Ireland? Daniel Caballero comes from Lima, and he and his wife Ellie have moved to Cork in the South West of Ireland. Daniel is involved with a group of Irish Baptist churches in the area, whose 'Cork Kerry' Project has planted five new churches in the last twelve years. Daniel talks about the opportunities for the gospel in Ireland. He also explains his literature and training ministry in Peru, Theologia para Vivir. Reformed churches are growing fast in Latin America, but this brings the danger of swinging to the extremes of hypercalvinism. Daniel explains how their book translation and publishing ministry is helping to correct such a drift.
