Our Peru Partnership
 
Peru Mission Team July 2015
 
 
In addition to partnering with other Presbyterian churches to provide medical clinics and VBS programs in the barrios of Lima, WCPC is developing two partnerships in the highlands of Peru, one with Iglesia Evangelica Presbyteriano in Ayaviri and one with the Sicuani Biblical Seminary in Sicuani.
 
WCPC continues to grow our outreach and mission partnerships in Peru.  Our medical team was in Carabyllo last summer working in the medical clinic, assisting a local optometrist fitting prescription eyewear, and also helping to fit reading glasses.  Our VBS team was in Pachacutec helping to lead Vacation Bible School with their church.  During the second week, the two teams swap locations.

Adventure is out there…and so is Mission!
 

While you may recognize some of these words from the Pixar movie “UP,” many of us at WCPC have learned over the past 17 years that adventure and mission await us in Zambia, a country in southern Africa.  It is there that we have 3 partners, the United Church of Zambia Siavonga Main Congregation, Justo Mwale University and the Namumu Orphanage Centre, which we have tried to visit every few years during a mission trip.

Since 2002, as part of our support of Justo Mwale University, we have provided a scholarship each year for a deserving seminary student. We have supported Rev. Chizason Chunda  (2003-2006), Rev. Lazarus Chilenje (2007-2010), Rev. Lovemore Nyirenda (2011-2013) and for the past three years, Tommy Banda .  Representatives from WCPC have been able to attend the graduation ceremonies of our first three scholarship recipients.  In keeping with this tradition, we are planning a mission trip to Zambia around the May, 2017 graduation of Tommy Banda, our fourth scholarship recipient.

If you would like to participate in such a trip or are curious about such an adventure, please contact John or Nancy Hathaway at 281-367-8792 or john_hathaway@yahoo.com or nancy_hathaway@yahoo.com.
