This past month we past the 3 million dollar mark in funds raised for our Ministry Partners. It is amazing to see the Lord work so quickly especially in the lives of awesome ministries. This has been a fun mile stone to reach before Jonathan leaves for his two month sabbatical on April 1.
Spring Break in Peru
Perception Funding has been partnering with and fully funding Living Missions Peru for five years now and it's exciting to share what the Lord is doing through their ministry.
Living Missions Peru is reaching communities in Peru with the Gospel of Christ through long-term partnerships with North American churches and local churches in Peru.
Each year many people go on spring break to rest, vacation and party. Others go on missions trips, in hopes that their work will make a long term impact on lives for The Kingdom. In the past month, Living Missions Peru hosted three mission trips! In total, 224 people have travelled down to worj with Living Missions Peru during this spring break season. These trips have not only been impactful on the lives of hundreds of Peruvians, but also on the lives of the North Americans as their minds and hearts are opened to what God is doing in the world.
This is Israel, a Peruvian staff member of Living Mission Peru. He grew up living in the amazon jungle, living and working at a christian school where his father is the principal and pastor. The school has around 500 students of which over 100 are special needs and would not get care elsewhere. Israel's father is an amazing man and is well respected in the community but he is aging and wondering how much longer he can continue to serve. Living Missions Peru is helping by training and equipping Israel to take over for his father some day. Although Israel is young he is a great leader with an amazing heart and knowledge of how to care and serve his people.
