Serving Jesus in Peru 2017
My name is Concetta Zito! God is sending me on a summer mission trip to Peru in July! Team Peru is made up of 16 adults and teens from First Alliance Church in Port Charlotte, Florida and I am one of our three bilingual members. We will work in the city of Trujillo to share Jesus with many children, youth and families in that community and our summer mission begins now as we pray and plan! Our travel dates are July 13-24!
Team Peru will work with 5 different outreach projects that are sponsored by the Christian and Missionary Alliance ministry, Inca Link in Trujillo. Elim is a garbage dump ministry that is reaching families living and working in the waste management system in Trujillo. Inca Thakhi is an Extreme Sports outreach to boys in Trujillo. Pasitos de Fe (Small Steps of Faith) is the community center that has a holistic approach to helping families in Trujillo and Mana is a day care center connected to the Elim garbage dump ministry! We will ask God to use us in all of these ministries in Trujillo. Finally, Amijai is a an intensive wraparound ministry that evangelizes to child, teens and adults. I feel particularly drawn to this ministry and the women there. They meet with the moms twice a week (once for a Bible study, and once for crafts workshops). Most women and children there come from broken homes with husbands and fathers who are gang members, abusive, and/or alcoholics.
Our team will work on various construction and maintenance projects as well as do a VBS-style program throughout the week for over 400 children connected to these Inca Link ministries. We will sing, do skits, share testimonies, play games and make crafts with these children, connecting the message of Jesus’ unfailing love to everyone we meet! We’ll work together with Christians in Trujillo, sharing testimonies, praying, singing, working side-by-side to accomplish great things for Jesus in this community.
Would you consider partnering with us to make this mission trip possible? I need your prayers as I return to my “Peruvian family”, to continue to minister to those with whom I share a culture and a language, to continue to share the love of Jesus with them! Mark 10:27 says ‘with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God!’
there are two ways you can help!
Prayer for God’s power and leading is key for the success of this mission trip!
