Our goal is to connect North America and South America and together work in compassion and construction ministries. We are firm believers in building relationships with the nationals at building projects and ministry sites. All these work projects are nicely mixed with cell group ministries, day care opportunities with children, evangelism, and church growth. We like to refer to short-term missions as a spiritual transformation ministry because it is more than “tourism missions trip.” It is a chance for God to work in someone’s life.

GARBAGE DUMP MINISTRY Teams will have the opportunity to demonstrate the love of Jesus to families who live in a garbage dump (Elim). The plan is to distribute clothes, food, and other goods to residents. Teams will be challenged to re-examine their own lifestyle as they see Christ among some of the most impoverished people in the world, and are happy with what little they have.
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY Here you will have opportunities to connect with children at the Day Care Center (Mana). You will have the opportunity to work with our sponsored children as they learn what God’s love means for them and how it affects the way they live. The goal is to love them, teach them about Jesus and help them grow in maturity.
MINISTRY COMPOUND Our Children’s Ministry Center serves the kids and families in the surrounding neighborhoods through a variety of different programs. These families are being reached with the gospel, discipled and taught life skills that will get them out of poverty. We are able to do this through our community ministry which runs out of the compound (Amijai). Teams will help to care for the children in the neighborhood, teaching them about Christ and His abundant love. They will even have opportunities to run a VBS program and help with the further construction and updates needed to better serve the community.
INCA THAKI Inca Thaki is the sports camp ministry Inca Link is starting in Trujillo, Peru. Teams will have the opportunity to work with the young boys as they are challenged to wrestle with the reality of God and how He can transform their lives. Inca Thaki uses sports to build communities amongst the young boys and to spread the word of God. Teams will have the opportunity to see or work with them as they engage in sandboarding, floor ball, soccer, skateboarding, and volleyball.
MINISTRY WITH THE LOCAL CHURCHES Teams will have the opportunities to connect with local churches who are feeding into the same communities we are working with. This looks different with each team as we are working together with the churches to meet the needs of the people in the best ways we can. This can look like helping with evangelism campaigns, 1 day VBS programs, leading worship, and many more activities!
WOMEN’S MINISTRY Teams will have the opportunity to be in fellowship with the mother’s of the surrounding communities as they come to do learn crochet, sewing, and cooking all while they hear the gospel message. Teams may also get the opportunity to visit the women’s bible study as a small group of the community mothers seek out the Lord in their lives. This program is a part of the Amijai ministry.
