    Imperfect Messenger; Perfect Message

    April 4, 2016

    by Jeff Enns

    I have heard so often from students, “Man! I wish I had learned more Spanish!” If you have participated in Mission Peru over these past 9 years, you more than likely felt this way, whether you voiced it or not. When we’re in the moment, and in Peru, we have this longing to communicate more effectively through words, and more often than not, we leave some of those experiences feeling frustrated. You might have even felt like you should have been a better messenger, but the words just simply wouldn’t come.

    Finding Joy in the Little Things

    March 31, 2016

    by Ashley Jones, West London Alliance Church

    During our time in Peru, I learned what the true definition of joy is. Before this trip, I always knew that there was a difference between happiness and joy but I never truly thought about what it was. Some of the Peruvians that I met really put into perspective the difference between the two words.

    Wisdom from Waste

    by Tim Magwood, West London Alliance Church

    My name is Tim Magwood and I am from West London Alliance Church. After our team visited the dump on Wednesday, I was having trouble gathering my thoughts into standard words and paragraphs. As I tried to write I decided that lyrics might be easier to work with rather than words because having to rhyme words would guide the specifics but I could still decide on the ideas I wanted to focus on. This is what resulted from it.

    City of Hope

    I missed this place. I missed the little hands which squeeze with all their strength. I missed the sweaty kisses that taste sweeter than any candy. I missed the local leaders and the boldness for Christ they carry in every circumstance.

Mission Peru Update: 2016 and Beyond

It was time for a second scouting trip. The year is now 2016. The first scouting trip was 2007, and we are about to send a March Break Team, an annual Mission Peru Trip for the 9th consecutive year.

For me specifically, it was worth another 5 day scouting trip in order to “stop, long enough to listen”. We were there to ask questions of the churches, ask questions of the ministry leaders, and then prayerfully move forward again with renewed vision and a stronger partnership for the years to come.

On The Bus

Thank you so much for your support over these past two years for the "Get On The Bus" campaign. On July 3rd, 2013 we purchased the bus and drove it directly to the Children's Home. 

Please continue to pray for the paperwork submission process as this bus now awaits the children into their new home.  Thank you once again for your sacrificial giving and your prayerful patience in helping fulfill the larger vision.
