Maranatha offers at least two family projects each year that provide service opportunities for every member of your family, both young and old. This year, spend part of your summer break in Peru!
Maranatha worked all throughout Peru in the early 2000’s. The churches and schools that were completed have since blossomed and created a need for even more urgently-needed church and school buildings. Local church leadership have requested assistance once again, and Maranatha is gladly responding to this call.
Volunteers on this project will work with two congregations in Arequipa, Peru. The group will complete block walls for a new church for the Los Portales congregation as well as pour the floor and assemble the metal church structure for the Horacio Zeballos congregation.
In addition, volunteers will conduct community outreach including medical and dental clinics, children’s ministry, and health education. A special day camp will be offered for children 12 and under which will give younger volunteers a unique opportunity to learn more about life in Peru while also helping in all the other aspects of the mission trip as well.
There will be an optional excursion at the end of the project to the world famous ruins of Machu Picchu.Scope
