Dental Ministry

Clinic visit by La Mision missionary Sosimo with the Dunn familyIn 2019, after much discussion with the local clinic, and leadership from Monica Dunn, RDH (from Illinois, USA), we had a very successful dental hygiene week with the local villagers.  Using the local clinic for 2 days, and two different schools each for 2 days, Monica with two assistants and a translator as well as the local clinic hygienist, succeeded in cleaning 150 mouths, many that have never had a cleaning.  This program was very successful for many reasons: 


La Misión - What are we about?

areal view of villagesWe get a lot of questions about what we do here at the mission, so thought I would put this 'overview' together.  [If you are interested in more of the bigger picture, such as where in Peru, or why we are 'here', here is a link you should look at first.]   The page below is a more dynamic "day to day" list, ever changing, but is a good snapshot. 

Our mission is equipped for short or long term mission visits.....


Homes of Hope - Ica, Perú

before and after kitchenWe initiated this mission project primarily focused on evangelism, which comes in all forms.  After all, what we accomplish here in this physical world accounts for nothing if we don't take care of our final destination.   Much of evangelism is purely spiritual and that is where we spend most of our time, in prayer, worship, teaching, and interacting with those living in the surrounding community.  A lot of it starts with the youngest members of the families, we have a bigger job with the teenagers, and still harder to reach the adults.  In all of this is the awareness of hope, lack of it, faith, need for it.  Much of where these people fail and give up is the hopelessness of their lives.  They work very hard and have little to show for it.  Then nature comes and hits them hard.  An 8.0 earthquake of 2007 for instance;  and even more recent, 2017, 200 Jobs and dozens of homes were washed away in local floods....
