2013 May - A New Home in Pisco

2013 April - Pisco Peru - Carrera Tataje 04 - SmallIn 2007 a terrible earthquake destroyed 70% of the homes in Pisco, Peru. Many people were displaced from their homes and relocated to a new area called Las Dunes, a sandy patch of land on the outskirts of the city. After the earthquake, we built many brick homes for earthquake victims. At that time, we formed a relationship with Pastor Carlos and Flor which has continued to this day. They are a wonderful and caring couple!

2013 April - Pisco Peru - Carrera Tataje 01Recently, Pastor Carlos contacted Marco Aroni our Peru Mission Coordinator about providing a prefab home for a needy family. He sent pictures to our office along with a story about the family and we were immediately moved to help. About that time we received a generous check from one of our mission supporters, which we were able to put toward this project and others.

Prefabricated homes are more expensive in this area, so we talked to Marcos Zuniga the teacher at the Able Hands Vocational Training Schools in Lima. He was able to build a home that exactly fit the size of their property. He did this with helpers from the VTC extension in Angamos and we shipped it to Pisco and saved $400 or $500 over the cost of purchasing a home in Pisco.

2013 April - Pisco Peru - Carrera Tataje 9 (1024x768)The Carrera Tataje Family now has a new home with a floor, a real roof and electric. Because of God’s goodness and supporters like you, these are the kinds of things we get to do over and over on behalf of needy children and families around the world. Thank you for helping us reach out to those in need through your gifts to this ministry.

Jim recently wrote:
“Laos and Burma (Myanmar) seem to be opening up for me as well as China and other places. I am getting so many invitations to help people that I need to clearly hear from God about where and when.”
