Lima, Iquitos, Nauta
Over the past 8 years, Word and Spirit Ministries has made several trips to three regions of Peru: Lima, Iquitos, and Nauta. On the first trip, to Nauta, Word and Spirit Ministries partnered with First New Testament Church and Bethel Pentecostal. Working together, a water well and pump were installed and the ministry team worked with a local pastor to finish a church he had been laboring on for years. Additionally, materials were provided to begin construction on a dormitory. The pastor, Willie, and his family disciple children as they help educate them through camps hosted at the facility. Besides this, they teach at marriage conferences and head outreaches in the community.
While there, representatives of Word and Ministries preach and assist the pastor in spreading the message of Christ to the community.
In 2012, construction on the first orphanage began in Iquitos. Once complete, children were rescued, many from child prostitution, and cared for by the pastor and several ladies who serve there. Word and Spirit and Ministries continues to support the children and workers each month. Please pray for the ministry to be a testimony of the love of Christ as well as for the children in its care as work continues in this country.
