About This Trip:
This is a unique mission trip as we will be taking 3 different teams serving in the capacity that they choose to Lima, Peru. We will be partnering with a large church in Lima, Camina de Vida (“Way of Life”) to serve under-resourced families in multiple different ways. They have a long history of receiving short-term mission teams and a great reputation for doing it well. We will be staying in the tourist district of Lima, enjoying wonderful accommodations, incredible food, and the freedom to sight-see and explore the area.
This team was specifically created to allow families and/or spouses to experience a mission trip together but serve in different capacities should they choose to. Children
must have at least one parent serving with them on the ministry team. This team is also a great trip for young adults and individuals.
The ministry team will be working through the local church to serve the community through evangelism and humanitarian relief. Our team will provide prayer for the patients going through the clinic and have games and activities for the children who are being served there. We’ll also participate in multiple humanitarian and evangelistic outreaches to the community, including a wheelchair assembly and distribution.
The medical and dental team will be providing much needed care in a very underserved area. This team will need providers, nurses, pharmacists and support staff to accomplish all that God has for us in Peru.
The construction team will build 2 houses for widows, single moms or families who have lost their homes in recent fires. The houses are prefabricated and will provide safe and secure lodging for the families.
Each morning we’ll have a team devotional and breakfast together, and each evening the teams will come back together to enjoy dinner and a debrief. We will also have an incredible free day to end our journey in Peru, where we will enjoy many of the sites and beauty of the country.
Accommodations / Meals:
The team will be staying in a hotel in the heart of Lima, Peru. Families may room together if desired. We will be enjoying breakfast and dinner together each day. Peru is considered the culinary mecca of Latin America!

Once you fill out your application, it will be reviewed within 36 hours. You will receive an email with detailed next steps, which will include completing all needed consent forms. You will then need to schedule a meeting with the missions department to go over paperwork, notarize forms if required (for minors), and receive your fundraising supplies.

Team training is a vital part of your mission trip experience and is required to be a part of the team. You will be required to attend at least 80% of the meetings. We have found that team members who prioritize meeting attendance are far more prepared and have a much more fulfilling mission trip.
