Peru is a beautiful nation. Located on the western coast of South America, it is home to mountains, the ocean, and over 32 million people.
It is also full of fascinating archaeological sites to visit during the trip’s cultural day. While the country has a firm grounding in Christianity, more than 80% of the population has grown up with a reliance on the corporate Church, rather than on Christ.
The Church in Peru is primed for the harvest. God has opened doors for evangelism opportunities in hospitals and rehabilitation centers, as well as schools. Churches are crying out for resources to reach them and for people like you to help ignite their congregations.
By coming on a GO Trip to Peru you will have the chance to build on this momentum and introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus. By sharing your faith story you can help them build deep spiritual roots, and develop faith that is firmly planted in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Peru has hot beaches, frigid mountains, and tropical forests. The climate is temperate with February being the hottest month (average temp 23.5) and August being the coldest (average temp 17)
