Hey everyone!

During this pandemic, I've been considering how God would use me to accomplish his purposes in fulfilling the Great Commission, which says to "make disciples of all nations." (Matt. 28:19). While I'm unsure as to what exactly that will look like for me in the future, I believe this trip to Peru will be crucial in forming my understanding of what it means to be on the mission field and to reach those who have not heard the gospel in cross-cultural contexts.

I'm asking that you would support me in two ways. Firstly, I ask that you pray for me; that God would show me more of who He is on this trip, and that he would grow in my heart a passion for his name and renown to be known, even to the ends of the earth.

Secondly, if you are willing, I am asking for financial support if you feel led to do so. If you believe in what God is doing in my heart and around the world, please consider donating, as it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support!

P.S: To all my Canadian friends, the currency is USD, so if you want you can keep that in mind if you choose to donate!

Trip Overview

To engage the next generation, our team teaches English and religion classes at several local high schools. In the mornings Apex students will join them in sharing at one of three local high schools. This includes not only English and religion, but also topics related to community health like water hygiene. After school our team seek to build relationships through soccer training, volleyball, and other outlets. Whatever your skills and passions, we can probably be used in some way to engage with Yanesha youth in order to reach this next generation! These efforts seek to engage, disciple and build a strong core of young believers…the future for the youth in these communities. The vision of the team is to see an indigenous movement of healthy churches resulting in Gospel transformation in the next generation, for the glory of God in the central Amazon jungle of Peru. Come join us in Peru!


How You’ll Serve

  • Teaching English in high schools -super simple but fun classes in 3 Yanesha high schools, and possibly elementary schools too, to connect with the kids so we can see them outside of school too.
  • Sharing in Religion Class - we’ll share testimonies, the Gospel in different ways, and youth-group Bible studies in same three schools.
  • VBS - We’ll have some focused time with children while adults are in a training event…so the team will help put together games, lessons, and fun for Yanesha kids, to share the Lord with them, and also help their parents focus on their training.
  • Other events - after school soccer, volleyball, crafts? Maybe even a lock-in!?! Having fun, building relationships, and sharing Jesus with the students as part of our long term vision.

Housing

If the group is more than 2 people: In San Ramon (3 nights)-in a 3-star hotel close to our house, with one of our leaders staying there too. There’s hot water, fans, basic internet, etc. If just 2 people: they can stay in house of someone on our team. We all have hot water and internet too.

In Iscozacin (2 wks) we stay in the Albergue Celestial. All the rooms have 2 twin beds there, sheets, one hard pillow, one small towel, nice big bathrooms, and no hot water (but it’s the jungle! You want a cold shower!). No bed lamps either, just a central light. We will all stay on the same floors, in rooms next to each other. We can wash clothes while we’re there too.
