WMI trip to Peru

PERU: THE CHURCH AND THE ENVIRONMENT

 

We will travel to Lima, Peru, to meet the Joining Hands Network, a network of churches and NGOs working together to address the causes of hunger for Peru’s 32 million people. We will visit a city whose 8,000 children suffer from lead-poisoning due to a metal smelter; reflect with a Peruvian Roman Catholic archbishop who contributed to Pope Francis’ encyclical on Christians’ responsibility for the earth, Laudato Sí (“On Care for our Common Home”); study eco-theology together with Peruvian seminarians; and reflect on the connections between climate change and hunger in a land where melting glaciers translate into decreased water supply and dwindling crop yields.

$10

Encourage Me!

Students and others are able to participate in a World Mission Initiative mission opportunity because they are encouraged by a classmate, professor, WMI staff member, and especially because of the financial support they are promised. Thank you for strengthening this promise through your gift of support!

$20

Equip Me!

Participants gather for three pre-trip preparation sessions before they leave for peoples and places completely new to them. Your gift equips students to go into the world with spiritual readiness and cross-cultural awareness.

$50

Pack Me!

WMI encourages participants to "pack light" by leaving behind both items and attitudes that might hinder their witness. Your gift resources participants with what they really need both in their suitcases and in their hearts - humility, faith, and love - as they participate in God's mission.

$100

Pray for Me!

WMI sends participants with a strong foundation of prayer and with confidence in the promise of the Holy Spirit's presence. Your gift of support for participants' travel costs gives tangible testimony to the strong prayer support that surrounds them as well.

$200

Mobilize Me!

Participants are mobilized into God's mission in a lasting way when they form relationships, as happens through Christian partners around the globe who welcome WMI trip participants to join them in ministry. Your gift gives participants the opportunity to form lasting relationships with church leaders around the world.

$500

Send Me!

Your gift encourages, equips, packs, prays for, and mobilizes participants well on their way to participating in what Jesus Christ is up to in another part of God's world! Thank you for sending participants from PTS on a life-changing, ministry-shaping World Mission Initiative trip!
