Mission Trips to Peru
Experienced teams going into the country of Peru
When you come to Peru on a mission trip what can you expect? You can expect to work hard and play hard. You can expect to see God do wonderful and powerful things.
You can expect to change lives and you can expect as a surety that your life will be forever transformed.
You will have the opportunity to see some of the most be beautiful country side that you have ever laid eyes on anywhere in the world. If in Huancayo, which is in the
central highlands of Peru, you’ll experience green mountains, waterfalls and pre-Inca culture and neoclassical Cathedrals.
Perhaps we will go to the south to a city called Ica, this beautiful and busy city boasts characteristic dunes and a vast desert etched with enigmatic figures,
the Nazca Lines, transformed into fertile fields by ancient cultures: The Paracas and the Nazca. Land of valleys, sun, beaches and a Natural Reserve inhabited by a lush variety of flora and fauna, it is also a mysterious land of villages, Afro-Peruvian music, and an oasis like the Huacachina, a patch of life in the heart of a blanket of sand.
We could go to the jungle and head down the Amazon or into Arequipa called the white city with
her snowcapped volcano El Misti, but wherever we may go
there is one thing for sure, you will find people who need to hear about the love of Jesus and are hungry to know him.

Peru is a country in South America that's home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains.
The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites. On Peru’s arid
Pacific coast is Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art.
Peru is a country in western
South America. It is bordered in the north by Ecuador and Colombia, in the east by Brazil, in the southeast by Bolivia, in the south by Chile,
and in the west by the Pacific Ocean.
Peru is an extremely biodiverse country with habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region
in the west to the peaks of the Andes mountains vertically extending from the north to the southeast of the country to the tropical Amazon
Basin rainforest in the east with the Amazon river
Peru's economy today reflects like centuries ago
its varied geography; the different climate zones
facilitate widespread agriculture, the Andes are rich in
natural resources allow mining and the Pacific Ocean with its fishful waters makes commercial fishing possible.
Economic growth continues mainly to be
driven by exports of minerals (mainly gold, copper, zinc), textiles, chemicals, agricultural products (garden produce and fruits), fish-meal, services
and by energy projects making the country's economy vulnerable to fluctuation in world market prices.
But liberalization of the goods and labor markets,
opening up trade through multiple recent international trade agreements, direct foreign investments and the maximization of the revenues resulting from
its rich natural resources paid off with increasing markets, a growth in domestic consumption and the development of the country's financial sector.
Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, in the central coastal part of
the country, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Together with the seaport of Callao, it forms a contiguous urban area known as the Lima Metropolitan Area.
With a population of more than 12 million, Lima is the most populous metropolitan area of Peru and the third-largest city in the Americas
Lima is Peru’s transportation hub, so it makes an excellent base to explore the surrounding areas. When staying in Lima, the Miraflores District
appeals to tourists due to the abundance of restaurants, hotels and other attractions.
Lima is home to one of the oldest higher-learning institutions
in the New World. The National University of San Marcos, founded on May 12, 1551 during the Spanish colonial regime, is the oldest continuously
functioning university in the Americas.
