Founded in 2009, we acquired a piece of property and then broke ground in 2013 to build a mission presence to serve a group of farming villages in San Juan Bautista district, Ica, Peru. We opened in late 2013 and had weekly church services and children’s outreach immediately in partnership with a local church 30 minutes south of us.
By October of 2015, we received resident missionary family to serve the community based here. A year later, we had an additional missionary join them. We have tremendous needs here in about 5 villages within walking distance and a large one a lttle farther, that we simply do not have the staff yet to serve.
We are a bible based christian organization which seeks to bring the love of Jesus to as many people that we can reach. In doing so, we have helped families with clothing, housing, building materials, health, education, food, services during floods, eye glasses, dental hygiene, teaching discipleship, music, english and many other services that we can find means or talent to deliver.
Latin American Missions Association (LAMA) - What We Do
We are an outreach organization. There is far greater need here than we are able to deliver on our own. We have built this mission house with the hope that more will come to assist, whether on a short or long term assignment. We seek to partner with mission organizations as well. We are in close relationship with YWAM/JUCUM having had many of their teams visit the mission. We are also in relationship with World Gospel Missions. Our desire is to encourage the building of Christ’s church in Ica Peru region. We seek to get this mission as active as possible as a destination of service, as well as a calling for locals to join in service. So much need, both physical and spiritual.
