Our Impact

2007 EarthquakeWe started this project shortly after the 2007 earthquake with a desire to 'make an impact' in this community that was so affected by that event.   In an effort to track ourselves in what we have accomplished so far, we thought we would make this list of milestones.  

  • 2009 Incorporate non-profit 501c3, founded as a church, with the intent of building a mission in the earthquake ravaged area of Ica, Peru

    • 2010 Outreach to San Juan Bautista district, assessment of property donation, bringing womens clothing, bibles, eyeglasses, dental materials. 

    • 2011 Exploration of options, assessment of area, meetings with engineers, drawing up plans, meeting churches, legal and much outreach to community

    • 2012 Demolition of property.  Christmas outreaches to villages of San Pedro & Invacion.  Near the end of our second trip that year, from out of the blue, our neighbor came over and gave us a path to increase our property (and the resulting mission size) by 50%   Thank you Lord!! November 2013 Evangelism

    • 2013 March - Breaking ground on Mission construction

  • 2013 October - Opening doors to Mission, initiating with weekly church services and weekly youth services. 

  • 2014 Anniversary celebration of one year of mission being active, while construction continues on upper floors

  • 2015 Sanchez Family2015 Construction of upper floors finalizes, welcoming resident missionary family, the Sanchez's - Julio, Yareni & Cecia

  • 2015 Took census of immediate communities, 450 unchurched children ages 12 & under.  Another 4-500 directly north in 2nd village.  Provided a Christmas outreach to reach up to 900 children in area.  Mission has arrived.

  • 2016 Excellent year of growth with resident missionaries, transfer of many activities (weekly services for adults and children) under their direction.  Irma Reyes joins as resident missionary.  Ground breaking on 2nd building for children's center. 

  • 2017 Many milestones:

    • Outreach to help flood victims across the river from the mission.  

    • Expanded by request to a new large village, the District seat, at District Mayoral invitation, to outreach to children in San Juan Bautista.  

    • After two years of meeting with Samaritan's Purse in USA, and making contact with their offices in Brazil and Lima, we had an Outreach to 160 'Samaritans Purse' unchurched children in the 5 villages around the mission.  This is the first time that Samaritan's Purse in Peru has gone south of Lima.   

    • We have made operational the first floor of a new second building, housing a  Children's Center and eventually Missionary housing upstairs.   We still need to add windows, doors, furnishings, build out bathrooms, etc.   But large meeting area on ground level was made available to use with lighting and electricity and water in May.
