We are counting down the days until our first mission trip of the year! We are looking forward to hosting a returning team of ladies from Wisconsin who will be working at Gamaliel Church in Pachacutec.
I can still remember back in 2010 when the ladies first contacted us about a mission trip. "We are just a small group of women," they told me. "Is there anything we can do in Peru?" I could hardly contain myself from screaming "YES!!!!!" At the time, we had been praying for months about the women's ministry in Pachacutec. We knew that there were many women who needed community and needed to hear about Jesus, but we weren't sure how we could help. The answer to our prayers came in the form of this small, but determined group of women from Wisconsin. The ladies put on women's workshops to reach out to the women in Pachacutec. It was truly a special week! (Click here to read more about their trip in 2011.) It was so clear that the Lord had called these women to Peru in His perfect timing.
This year a few of the ladies are back, and they are joined by a few more ladies who will be joining us for the first time. The ladies will be putting on the second edition of "Una Semana Para Nosotras" -- workshops to teach women about what it looks like to follow God as a women, a wife, a mother, and a friend. Our work starts on Saturday!
Please join us in praying that God will use this coming week to transform women and their families! We pray for meaningful relationships to be formed so that women can connect, encourage each other, and spur one another on.
Thank you, prayer warriors!
We have had the privilege of serving in Peru since 2003. We partner with four different ministries throughout Peru: two in the Lima area, one in the Andes mountains, and one in the Amazon jungle.
