The church in Peru is serving their widows and elders as they look to change the tide of culture in their country.
This spring, Director of Mercy Ministries Mark Buzzetta traveled to Cusco, Peru to connect with a local church doing great work caring for widows.
The trip was eye-opening to Peru’s great natural beauty and local struggles, coming almost as often from floods of global tourists to their region as well as stifling animist traditions.
Heavy rains in Peru recently triggered deadly mudslides, destroying entire villages. Many villagers watched helplessly as their lives were completely washed away in mere minutes. The disaster could have meant total devastation and despair. But thanks to your gifts of support, World Challenge (WC) was able to bring hope to a landscape of despair. Here’s a look behind the scenes at how your support worked to help those facing total disaster.
