Living Missions Peru
June 8 - 17 2015
On June 8th I (Jonathan) flew out of Kansas City and headed south of the equator to the jungles of Peru to work with our ministry partner Living Missions Peru. We have been partnering with them for over three years now and have helped them double the amount of money they have coming in, so we wanted to see what they are doing and how we can help in other ways.
Living Missions Peru has four ministry locations throughout Peru and I spent all of my time serving at the Refugio de Esperanza (Refuge of Hope) in Pucallpa with a team of 14 from Virginia, along with five Living Missions Peru summer interns and five Spanish translators.
The Refuge of Hope is a community mainly for those who have mental or physical disabilities, housing families, running a school, and spreading the hope of Christ through a church. This is a very necessary and revolutionary place as this society typically disregards and abandons those with disabilities.
