Upcoming Mission Trip to Peru
This summer promises to be a summer of mission trips—the Graves family will be heading to southeast Asia in July to do the Lord's work, and I (Benjamin Bruce) will be flying south to Peru in just a few short weeks!
I will mostly be in the Loreto region of northern Peru, a part of the world that is characterized by river travel, rainforests, and hot, humid climate. I will be going with some other brothers and sisters from the U.S., as well as some preachers from Peru's capital, Lima.
Unlike last year, when I really didn't know what to expect, this time I'm really excited since I can anticipate the encouragement and wonderful opportunities that the trip presents. We will hold Vacation Bible Schools for the children and Gospel meetings for all ages in several cities in Loreto, and I will likely be involved in just about everything, from helping with crafts to preaching sermons. We will also go through the communities having Bible studies and inviting people to come to these events.
I'll try to keep you updated through Truth For The World's social media as I travel (there are links at the bottom of this page), and I would appreciate your prayers as well! Peru is a very safe part of the world, but prayers for safety and receptive hearts are always beneficial.
