Pucallpa, Peru | Group Mission Trips

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. You will catch a glimpse of that diversity as you travel from Lima to the jungle port town of Pucallpa. When you travel to Peru with Group International Mission Trips, your week with the Shipibo people will capture your soul, invigorate you with the beauty of God’s creation, 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.

The “El Evangelista” is no ordinary river boat. This 4-story boat was purchased in 2007 as a means to travel down the Ucayali River to serve the Shipibo people and tell them about God. You will stay on the river boat for up to 5 nights, traveling up the Ucayali River into the jungle, where you’ll work alongside our partner, a longtime Peruvian missionary, serving the indigenous Shipibo people. You may also work with a local church and ministry in Pucallpa in the remote jungle in Peru. “El Evangelista” is equipped with AC, bunk beds with mattresses, and a full kitchen and cafeteria.

Skills

Taking a Group International Mission Trip lets you see the world through God’s eyes. You’ll gain a fresh perspective about the work God does in local communities throughout the world and that new view will make you more aware of the different cultures and misperceptions about where you’re serving. With a deeper insight, you’ll return home transformed. Plus, you’ll grow closer to Jesus through acts of service and get to know him more deeply. We’ve partnered with long-term ministries that are rooted in the countries we serve. As you’re reading this, they are passionately serving and loving their neighbors, working to meet physical and spiritual needs in Jesus’ name. When we arrive, we come alongside their efforts for long-lasting impact. Types of work vary based on location, no special skills are needed!

What We Will Do

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

  • Doing light construction and painting for ministries and churches in Pucallpa
  • Playing games, doing crafts, and participating in VBS with children

Our Partners

We partner with a Peruvian mission team that serves the Shipibo people. 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.
