When an MTW missionary returned to his Arequipa home one day, the apartment complex guard stopped him. The guard had heard that he was a pastor, so he handed the missionary a long list of the names of his family and friends. Even though he was not a Christian himself, the guard asked the missionary to pray for them. People here watch us as we go about our daily lives, so even when we are not actively trying to spread the gospel we can still be a witness.
Serving the Community
Our team organizes evangelism projects, discipleship groups, Bible studies, and short-term teams. We use mercy ministries as catalysts for evangelism and tools for churches to reach their communities. Some of these mercy ministries include providing relief for street children, participating in construction projects, and offering medical attention to those who need it. To successfully implement these projects, we maintain personal relationships with people in the community to learn how to serve them best. Our ultimate goal is to use all of these efforts as a foundation for church planting in Arequipa.
