|A special two weeks|
OM InternationalDuring the final week of July, OM Peru helped in a church construction project and ministry outreach. The church, located in Pucusana, an impoverished community located 60 kilometres from Lima, welcomed volunteers from Peru and the United States. The team laid the foundation of the church and begin building the church frame. Additionally, they shared God’s love with the surrounding community while a medical doctor from Lima attended to several church members and families. “It was really special to see how this community responded to the work and helped us in the construction,” said Mayelo, leader of OM Peru.
After finishing the project in Pucusana, Mayelo and his wife, Any, spoke at a week-long mobilising conference. The conference, organised by the Alliance Church, focused on missions and took place during the first week of August. It was the third consecutive year OM Peru had been invited to share at the conference. “Most of the participants were university students, so we decided to give workshops on ‘The Tentmakers’,” said Mayelo. Nearly 150 people participated in the event. Please pray that God will use this conference to mobilize more Latino youth to the mission field.
