We remember with gratitude our time and service in Peru from 2006 to 2016! God blessed us with a wonderful and multicultural team (Peru, UK, Canada, US and France) willing to serve God and His people in Bible training, mission teams and publishing materials on missions (GLO Peru).
I remember with nostalgia when we started our Bible Institute with eleven students. They were committed leaders with a hunger to study God’s Word. The Bible Institute provided great fellowship between them which stimulated trust and a shared vision. Our little experience, the immense geographical distances in the country and the new and unknown Bible Institute for the assemblies were some of the challenges we had to face in this missionary adventure.

However, God has been gracious and faithful in providing wisdom for our team, trust among the assemblies in the country and many enthusiastic young leaders who were willing to take the baton. We would not have been able to do it without the support, advice and pastoral care of our partners in mission at Echoes International.
We rejoice because 10 years after having started the Bible Institute we left it in the hands of national leaders. They decentralised the Institute in five different cities but kept strong ties of fellowship and coordination; there have been around 400 students taking several of our courses, and they are now facing new challenges with God’s help. Let’s rejoice for the believers in Peru and pray that God will raise a new generation of leaders who fear God and handle well God’s Word to shepherd His people.
