Family Project Peru
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 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.
Volunteers on this project will be one of the many volunteer groups working at the La Tinguiña Adventist School in a suburb of Ica, Peru. The congregation started meeting in this location in 1975 and have been praying ever since for an Adventist school. In 2019 Maranatha agreed to build them a school and later that year, the members stepped out in faith and tore down their existing church to make room on the property. Unfortunately COVID-19 has delayed the construction of the school, but the members are still faithfully awaiting their new school and construction is expected to resume in 2021.
Depending on the number of volunteers who join and their skill sets, the group may also reach out into the surrounding community through health outreach and children’s ministry programs. Younger volunteers, 12 and under, will have a chance to join the Day Camp during the project to experience different aspects of service and receive insights into daily life in Peru!
At the end of the project, the group will have the opportunity to visit the world famous ruins of Machu Picchu!Scope
