Cusco is one of Peru's most intriguing and cultural cities. Our outreach team will explore a short time in Lima and work with a local church reaching out to impoverished barrios, be doing care work/visitations inside a local hospital, encouraging start-up churches within the barrios, and also go house to house getting a chance to meet families and ministering to them. The majority of our time will be in Cusco. We will serve in one of the many local orphanages that house hundreds of forgotten and abandoned children, many who have been rescued from the snares of sex trafficking. 

 

There are so many villages outside of Cusco, tucked in the mountains, with only dusty, dirt roads that reach them. We will visit some of these villages, sharing the Gospel, distributing food and medicine, playing soccer with the kids and eating with the families. Through translators, you will have the chance to share your testimony and pray for those who come to salvation as well as those needing prayer for healing. 

 

Our free days will consist of shopping in the infamous Cusco curio market, the most amazing horseback trek in the Andes, Zip-lining (optional and breathtaking!) You'll savor delicious fresh Nutella and strawberry crepes, hot chocolate or some local Inka Cola as you stroll through the cobbled streets to the Plaza de Armas Plaza. Visiting the legendary Machu Picchu will be an exciting day as we take the classic Inka Rail to Aguas Caliente.

Health-Extended Trip

Altitude – Our trip to Cusco, Peru will take us to remote regions at high altitude. We always take our time to acclimatize properly by allowing for additional rest. When gaining in altitude above 10,000 feet, we have included sufficient rest or “layover” time to ensure that you acclimatize properly. While many people may experience minor ill effects from high altitudes, there are some who have persistent symptoms that require returning to a lower altitude. We do our best to allow a pace for everyone to acclimatize. We cannot determine how you will do at higher altitudes, but being in the best shape possible and having a lower body fat percentage will help greatly. Should you require any medication whatsoever, you must provide your own and be able to administer it yourself. Medical supplies in Peru are not reliable or guaranteed, though we will have a fully stocked medical kit on the trip.

 

 

Training

Training for this trip will take place at the Embassy Suites in Miami, FL. (Lodging can be subject to change.)

 

Training consists of specific ministry and outreach information, going over rules and safety regulations, team bonding time, and an evening meeting with worship and small group prayer.
