  • We serve a big big God

    One thing that has been on my heart is how big our God is. I often simplify who he is; he is loving, he is forgiving, he is strong. These things are true and fundamental to who God is, but he is so so much more than that. The God that watches over the small children who wake up every morning to the smell of burning garbage, the God...
  • Soooo Different

    My experiences at Peru can be summed up in the word extraordinary. I have lived in Canada practically my whole life. So when I came to Peru everything was different. The cars, the building, the people and even the church. I went to one of the 11 alliance churches in Trujillo. Almost everything in the church was different, the way...

    God has been teaching me a lot while down here in Peru but one of the things he has put on my heart is the feeling of true joy. I have always found myself to be a very happy person that is constantly laughing and smiling wherever I go. However, from the moment I arrived here, I immediately felt an overwhelming sense of pure joy...

    We are currently four days into our expedition, obviously differences from back home are expected; although I cant say I’m missing it yet. The weather is often dry and hot, which makes every cold breeze and water break that much more enjoyable. I’ve really started to feel how our views of good and bad are merely...

  • Amazing yet heartbreaking

    March 12, 2018 Kabura


    My encounter so far here in Peru has been inspiring. First arriving in Peru can only be described as enchanting. The sweet sound of silence and the city lights was as if heaven was on earth. Meeting Jim and Lisa Brown and hearing about their work in Peru and how they were able to bring the Spirit of Christ into Trujillo and inspire others...

  • Rollercoaster of Emotions

    March 11, 2018 Emily Blackwell

    Hey it’s Emily. 

    The trip thus far has been a rollercoaster of emotions.  To fit them all in this blog would be impossible, but I’ll try my best to name the most important.  Over the past few days we as a team, have sweated, burned, and loved.  Sweated with all the hard work, burned because it’s really hot,...

  • My Stolen Heart

    Hola from Jose!


    These past few days have been a complete whirlwind! I am fairly poor at words, so please bear with me as I try to express what I have been going through.

    Today we went to Mana. A ministry that works with the little children through afterschool programs, serving them meals and teaching them the word of God all the while...

    Prep for Peru is complete (well, almost). Passports are ready, donations have been received (thanks for your generosity) and bags are packed and weighed. Tomorrow we will be making our way to Toronto and embarking on a plane headed to Lima, Peru. As with so many of these trips, plans have been made, but more importantly, room has been made in...
