Peru is the third largest South American country, encompassing the Andes Mountains and dry coastal plains to the west and the Amazon jungle to the east. The culture is influenced by both the Incan Empire and Spanish colonization. Peru has a strong history of Catholicism, and many combine Christianity and Andean paganism. Together, the team will partner with IMB missionaries and Peruvian churches with the goal to share the Gospel, and make disciples in urban centers, human settlements, local schools and new church starts.
Why serve in Peru?
Visitors per day to Machu Pichu

The total number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants in the country now stands at about 800,000.
Along the Peruvian coast, the climate is very peculiar. The temperature varies little during the year and is almost always spring-like, but it almost never rains and therefore the landscape is desert
Llamas were first domesticated and used as pack animals in the Peruvian highlands.
