Redirection


You may have seen in the news (or through Southwood emails) that Peru has been hit by devastating mud slides which have washed away homes, businesses, crops, and rendered clean water a scarcity. Scripture Union, the organization we serve alongside each summer with our senior high students, is responding in specific ways as they are able. In light of this disaster, they have asked that our team redirect from their boys’ home in Kusi, which is in the mountainous northern region, and instead serve at a boys’ home in their southern desert region of Ica. Our team will be staying in the Ica boy’s home—supporting the house parents and encouraging the boys in the home while there. However, instead of doing basic construction projects around the compound, our team will be working alongside the boys and the Scripture Union staff as they distribute clean water from the well recently installed at the Ica boys’ home. Our team will also help with the reconstruction of a local house church that was destroyed.

Please pray for our team members as this change is not insignificant. Pray that God will use them to encourage the house parents and the boys who may be weary from their relief efforts, and ask that God would increase Scripture Union’s witness for Him in the community through our team’s presence and efforts.

Our Peru team is still raising the necessary funds for this trip. If you would like to support them financially, you may do so by writing a check to Southwood and designating it for the Peru mission trip. We also covet your prayers, and if you would like to join us in praying specifically for them, please contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
