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.

Roughly 460 kids attend this school every day with 70% of them being mentally or physically disabled in some way. There are 26 class rooms, a large, multi-purpose room, rehabilitation room and a wheel chair/prosthetic workshop.

The church has two services each Sunday in the multi-purpose room with many people throughout the community attending. Through out the week they host regular prayer meetings, have large youth group and many ways for people to get involved in the school.

Around 60 of the disabled children and 10-12 families with at least one handicapped parent live on the property. The children and the adults all take on responsibilities  around the property; teaching, growing food, cooking, cleaning, maintenance and repairs.
