Peru Mission Exposure Trip 2016

Save the dates – February 11-22, 2016

Peru: Lima & Cusco

In Lima we will explore the incredible diversity of beauty and brokenness: from the Malecon and parks, shopping, ancient ruins of Miraflores to the outlying areas of the barrios, humble living, and more challenging realities of Peru.

This mission exposure trip will open your eyes and touch your heart as we get to know local Peruvians (and possibly even stay in a Peruvian family’s home!), taste their cuisine, hear their music and see their dances, as we work on a mission project together, learn about the work of NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organizations), and meet artisans working to sustain their livelihoods. Worship and devotion together, along with daily debriefs afford opportunities to reflect on our travels, visits and all that we have seen and heard!

Travel with mission exposure in mind will transform your vision for travel forever!

Iquitos Mission:

…and for the more adventurous, we will travel up to Iquitos in the Amazon jungle for an additional 3-4 days before returning home. There, we will take an Amazon canoe trip, visit an animal refuge and tribal community! And work with members of a local congregation to paint and restore their church building. (*an additional fee applies)
