Serving Jesus in Peru 2017
My name is Melanie! For several years, I have had a yearning to go on a mission's trip. However, I had no idea how to go about traveling to a foreign country to serve God. One day at church I was talking with my pastor and he said that our church has a team going to Peru this summer. They had one spot left. God had left a spot open for me. The group I will be serving with is called Team Peru and it is made up of 16 teens and adults. This coalition is a part of the First Alliance Church in Port Charlotte, Florida. In Peru, we will work in the city of Trujillo to share Jesus with the youth and families in the community. We have already begun our mission, for we are praying and preparing for the excursion.
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. Amijai does child evangelism. 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.
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? We need your prayers as we reach out in faith to meet people in a new culture, who speak a different language to share the love of Jesus with. 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!
