Country File: PERU
Peru is as complex as its most intricate weavings. Festivals mix ancient pageantry with stomping brass bands. The urban vanguard beam with artistry and innovation. Trails mark the way from dense jungles to glacial peaks. However, in this vast array of astonishing cultures, there are millions of people in need. They are waiting for hope around every corner and mountain ridge. With thousands of unreached villages throughout the country, it is our prayer that they find hope in the One who came to bring them life- Jesus.
Evangelism & Teaching
Our teams to Peru travel north and are based out of the city of Cusco. From there, the opportunities for ministry are great including traveling outside of Cusco to surrounding villages and onto the Inca trail to reach unreached villages with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There are many impoverished areas in this region, and there are a variety of ways to help meet the needs of the people which include feeding, participating in medical work, VBS, teaching, and growing in discipleship.
