Peru Trip

Peru Mission Trip

Join our Mission Trip to Peru—a land of many contrasts,

including the towering heights of the Andes Mountains and lush, humid jungles. After completing Boot Camp, you bus to the Miami International Airport. A flight takes you across the Straits of Florida, Cuba, the Caribbean Sea and the Equator before arriving in Lima, the capital of Peru.

Here you change planes for your flight across the Andes to Pucallpa, a jungle city located in the Amazon Basin on the Ucayali River, which merges into the Amazon River and flows over 2,000 miles to the Atlantic Ocean. Your project is to continue construction on the church and classrooms for El Shaddai, a Bible Missionary Church that ministers to the people of Pucallpa.

Housing will be in wooden dorms with dirt floors and laundry will be done using a bucket. During free time, you may have the opportunity to share in the local public school or the nearby orphanage using puppets, music and drama. You may also have a chance to walk down to the markets by the river to barter for native earrings, spears and beautiful paintings.

Project Expense: $3490 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

  14. Hi! I am signed up for the Malawi trip right now, but because of the Muslim situation in Africa right now, my parents want me to have a back up plan in case they decide they don’t want me to go there. So I was just wondering how much room is left on this team?

    • Tina, There is still plenty of room on Peru. Please assure them that we will not send the team if it is not safe and that we will switch the team, even at the last minute (it happened to me one year). We have Americans in Malawi right now and it is very safe there at this point.

  17. How many people are usually on one team?
