Missionaries in Peru
Missionary projects and programs help you use your resources to advance God’s redemptive work in our world of spiritual lostness and physical needs. They are pathways designed to connect the people of God with the work of God.
We help, without doing harm, sharing out of the generosity of our hearts.
Command those who are rich……to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (I Timothy 6:17-19)
Together we can impact the world for Christ!

Shawi Discipleship Center
The Shawi Discipleship Center is used for spiritual training, retreats, and workshops.
The spiritual training ranges in level from basic discipleship through a Bible Institute offered by our co-worker. New believers in villages with no existing church quickly move into leadership roles out of necessity as they evangelize others in their communities. Training these new believers is critical because while they do continue to receive visits from those who brought the gospel message to them, many are in remote locations and visits every month or so are insufficient. Basic discipleship is designed for these newest Christian leaders. For those who have completed this training, we're developing a second level of discipleship which will include leadership and stewardship training. Our co-worker Susan then offers a Bible Institute for those who wish to pursue a post secondary degree in Biblical Studies.
Along with biblical training, we have used the center for retreats. Most recently, we've hosted high school aged Shawi youth for summer camp. We hope to expand our retreats to include one for pastors and another for young married couples.
Finally, we hope to use the center for other workshops including Sunday school teacher and worship training. There have also been requests for small engine repair, sewing, and agricultural workshops.
