God has opened up this opportunity for my team and I to partner with Paz y Esperanza (Paz) in Peru. We will be partnering with Paz to share Christ’s love in Huánuco, Peru.
Paz serves the community by providing housing, medical attention, and counseling for women who have been sexually assaulted resulting in pregnancy. When admitted into the shelter, Paz also provides housing and medical attention to the survivors’ children. Paz y Esperanza shows mercy to women who would otherwise be living on the streets.
Judson teams have visited Peru twelve times and we love the opportunity to continue this partnership. I am humbled to serve and learn from these women and children. We welcome the opportunity to care for the girls in the shelter as we assist the long-term laborers in any way we can. I believe I will grow and be stretched through this experience and I’m thankful to have this amazing opportunity.
We ask for your prayerful support of our team going to Peru. Please pray for their safety, that they adequately prepare to serve others, and that their attitudes and actions reflect Christ’s love. Please also pray for that they discover a deeper understanding of God’s Kingdom can share with our communities, and that the experience will change our hearts and actions for the long-term.
We also ask you to prayerfully consider supporting Judson’s Global Outreach efforts in partnering with this organization. Each member needs to raise about $1,900 to support the work they will be doing with Paz Y Esperanza.
