Youth Peru Mission Trip


Youth Peru Mission Trip

From June 2nd to the 12th a work team of youth and adult leaders will travel to the one of Scripture Union’s many “street boy” centers, Kusi, just outside Yungay, Peru in the Andean mountains. This center, in the shadow of Peru’s highest peak the Huascaran, is home to around 40 Peruvian “street boys” who have been rescued from a life of minimal subsistence on the streets of Peru. At the center the boys are covered with the love of Christ through house parents, the Scripture Union staff, and work teams that visit. The Southwood team will spend time helping with the construction of new facilities through digging footers, making adobe bricks and performing other building related projects. The team will also have daily interaction with the boys—sharing meals, playing soccer, singing, just spending time together—sharing the love of Christ.

Please be in prayer for the team as they prepare, and while they are on the mission field. Prayers for safe travel, team unity, safety while on the worksite, and health are all coveted. Also requested are prayers that the team would seek God’s direction and be open to what lessons God has for the team as they minister to the boys, the house parents, and the Peruvian workmen.
