International Mission Trip to Peru

Peru is home to a wildly diverse geography, from pristine beaches on the western side of the country to the rugged barren Andes that separate the coast from the sweltering, green jungle, and you will catch a glimpse of that diversity as you travel from Lima to the jungle port town of Pucallpa. The people of Peru are as diverse as the terrain, as they have adapted to their surroundings through hundreds of years. The coastal city of Lima is home to people of European, Asian, and Quechuan descent. Lima is metropolitan and chic, overflowing with sleek buildings and international fusion cuisine. As you travel into the mountains, the pace of life slows down, and as you travel even farther east into the jungle, you step into a different time altogether.

When you travel to Peru with Group International Mission Trips, your week with the Shipibo people who live in Pucallpa will capture your soul, invigorate you with the beauty of God’s creation all around you, and remind you that no matter how far away from home you go, you can find brothers and sisters of the faith united together under the love of Christ.

You will spend your week serving alongside Shipibo, Peruvians, and fellow North Americans as you help build a church or a home for a small village of new believers. You’ll play games with countless Shipibo children and join together in worship with your new friends. You’ll come home with a new understanding of what it means to live simply and your faith will deepen.

What We Will Do

Here are examples of the types of projects you might be involved with:

Building a church in a Shipibo village on the Ucayali. Playing with kids or running VBS in a Shipibo village.
All the project work we do is coordinated ahead of time through local contacts and in support of their overall efforts.

We partner with a Peruvian mission team that serves the Shipibo people who live along the Ucayali River. They have developed a method of teaching the Bible to the Shipibo that mimics the way they pass down their stories orally from generation to generation. The Shipibo culture is an oral one, which means more emphasis is placed on the verbal sharing of stories and traditions than on writing things down.
