Building a legacy for God's Kingdom.
One of our Fearless Initiatives for 2019/2020 is to build a church plant oversees. We have an opportunity to partner with Compassion to do just that in Shapaja, Peru.
Shapaja is located approximately 25Km from the regional capital Tarapoto. Several thousand residents are faced with many challenges; spiritually there is a need for a strong evangelical witness. Economically, high unemployment and low wages for those who do have work.
In this community, our efforts to see lives changed by Jesus takes on the form of a church plant and child development center now under construction. When completed it will impact the entire community for generations to come. Children in the child development center (sponsored by AL through Compassion) will come into contact with loving teachers who will teach the scriptures to them, provide critical education, health care and through those means influence their families.
At the center of all this is a church Iglesia Evangélica de Shapaja that is driven by a love for Christ and passion for those far from God.
Why we are building in Shapaja.
