Compassion International works through some of our churches in the San Juan de Miraflores district of Lima. It’s summertime in Peru, and the children in the CI programs are not forgotten during their summer vacation. At Santisima Trinidad (Holy Trinity Church), the CI children enjoyed a summer-school program that included English classes.
At another church, San Juan Evangelista (St. John the Evangelist), the CI children enjoyed a three-day vacation Bible school that asked three questions: (1) Why do we praise God? (A: because of his great feats seen in his creation of the world and sending Jesus to die for our sins); (2) How do we praise God? (A: with our voices, instruments, prayer, dance); and (3) Who and what should praise God? (A: all of his creation).
The CI children also enjoyed nutritious meals at the churches and, for some, a week-long summer camp aside a beach near Lima. Praise God for this time to speak into and enrich the lives of some of our neediest children!
