Quechua Family Asks for Teaching from God’s Word

The six adults and three children gather around a rough wooden table in a home in Yurma, Peru; some stand while others sit on whatever is available—a sack full of grain, a rock, or a small overturned bucket—to listen as the missionary shares from God’s Word.

The missionary had learned of a family interested in hearing more from the Bible. He’d searched for them for some time, even going home to home. Providentially he met a young man walking in the road carrying alfalfa for his animals—and learned he was the family’s son!

The son introduced him to his wife and parents, who were thankful to be able to listen to the Word and discuss it in Quechua. They are eager to meet regularly and invite their neighbors and extended family. Both the family and the missionary hope this will lead to a Quechua church.

We’re thankful that God uses us to begin new churches. And we’re thankful for your prayers and support that enable our missionaries to continue in the work God has called them to do.

The Josephine House: A Video

MTW missionaries started The Josephine House to care for abandoned children in Peru. Watch and see what God is doing through this ministry.


What Does "Making Disciples" Really Look Like?

Knock, knock, knock. There stood a woman with her four young children, a family that our Peruvian national partner was reaching out to.


A Video Update from Arequipa, Peru

Though our ministry in Arequipa is just over a year old, we already see encouraging evidence of God's work. Watch and be encouraged.


Medical Outreach: A Week of Divine Appointments

The trip was the first of its kind for our Medical Campus Outreach team in Peru. Many of the student participants are not yet believers.


God Saw No Need to Wait

Tuesday night's music practice for a few believers in Arequipa, Peru, turned into a divine appointment when a passerby knocked on the door.


"We'll take the baby."

One family's choice shifts the perception of adoption in Peru.
