From Fr. Ian Montgomery:
Amigos del Peru may cease to function in the USA as a 501c3. The director and board are searching for alternate ways to direct funds through a 501c3. The Bishop of Peru has made the following announcement:
This means that individuals will be able to give in the alternate way being developed or via their local churches of dioceses. These are the only ways at present to make tax deductible contributions to the ministry in Peru. I will be happy to send details for bank transfers to Peru. Please know that sending personal checks to Peru is unlikely to work as it is expensive and the mail may not get through. I cannot handle contributions personally.
I am personally very sad as I was partly responsible for starting the 501c3. For several years AdP has had a small board and a director from Texas. For administrative reasons they are unable to continue.
Please continue to pray for the ministry of the Anglican Church of Peru. We are fairly small but very energetic and committed to both the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. Yes I am a priest of the Anglican Church of Peru, and proud of it. I continue to visit four for five times a year, fostering growth, encouraging clergy and lay leaders, and developing partnerships between congregations, dioceses and the ministry in Peru.
Every blessing for the new year – In Christ – Ian+ December 30, 2017
