Ministry in Peru
Around a third of the population of Peru live along the west coast and in the capital, Lima, and half live in the Andean Highlands. There is great social inequality throughout the country, with those in rural areas generally being less well off than those in urban areas. Many of those who live in the rural areas of the country depend on agriculture to survive.
The Peruvian Bible Society is beginning to see a change within the people of Peru. The population is becoming increasingly secularised- many are turning away from religion and God. Yet the Peruvian Bible Society continues their work, spreading the news of the Gospel.
The Peruvian Bible Society seeks to provide God’s Word to everyone in Peru, no matter what their cultural, ethnic, geographical or social status. Their main focus is through holistic and Bible engagement projects. They believe that it is important to answer people’s different needs, as well as providing spiritual materials to help them encounter God.
Below we have some stories from the “Bread of Life” project, where children are given breakfast alongside Biblical teaching.
