Below is a little more about the various aspects of your total experience with us, along with deadlines and updates.
your host missionary
It wasn't long after Luis the Llama took a special trip to Machu Picchu that he realized something was missing. "I finally was able to see the carvings of my ancient ancestors. I had anticipated this moment my entire life. When I got to the ancient city, I was so nervous my wool was standing on end. Little did I know, but I was in for a big let down." Upon viewing the carvings, Luis was confronted with the brutal truth. His ancestors had not been royalty after all...well, not in the traditional sense. The carvings seemed to show ancestors of a bygone era being used for everything from scarves to rugs! Luis was outraged. "At first I was blind with rage. I didn't know what to do. After the rage subsided, I just felt empty inside...lost..." It was at that point that, miraculously, Luis was approached by someone asking him how he was doing. When he divulged his feelings, they invited him to church that evening. It was there that he placed his trust in Christ as his Savior. Shortly after, Luis went into full time mission ministry. Today, he works among the poorest of the poor in Lima, building relationships for the sake of telling people about Jesus Christ.
You will be doing sports camp. It's basically a VBS replacement and is most useful for churches who want to use the week-long ministry as a way to train their junior high students as leaders.
