About the Peru Mission Trip

July 11th through July 18th 2014

On July 11th he will be leaving on a short term mission trip to Peru, South America.

The team of 18 will arrive in Lima, Peru on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, July 12th they take a bus into the Andes to a place called Kusi, near Yungay, Peru.

We will serve as a work team that will help in construction work and sharing God's love to the abandoned street boys that are living under the care of Scripture Union, Peru. Over the past twenty years they have used work teams such as ours to help build sites for Street Boys. Kusi is one of Scripture Union's ten sites in Peru. There are about thirty to forty Street Boys that are being raised by Peruvian house parents at each site.

We will help build for the needs of current boys as well as future kids so they will have a place to live. We will share Jesus' love through Vacation Bible School games, worship and devotions with these children that have been placed there to keep them off the streets andout of harms way. 

In Peru at the age of three the parents can abandon the male child if they are not able to afford to provide for them. Without help most of these children will not survive because they will become victims of the world such as drugs, sex trafficking, and their own government. This is where they get the name, "Street Boys".

The most important thing we can do for these children is to share the love of Christ with them. We will do this by removing ourselves from our prejudices and material possessed culture and live as they live for the time we are with them. We will place ourselves into their world. A world filled with simple things and very few material items. We will experience for ourselves, the joy of just having food and shelter.

Our purpose is to show them the love of God through his son Jesus and that God truly loves them.
