For the past 4 summers, the Hutchison Girls have attended the Big World Ventures mission trips to Central and South Americas, each lasting 2-3 weeks. Although the goal and outline of the ministry is similar, what is extremely important to us is the variety of people we encounter. In Ecuador, we ministered to many people of all different demographics. In Costa Rica, we encountered a lot of homeless people. In the San Blas islands in Panama, we played with many children and spoke and prayed with the natives in their huts. This summer in Lima, Peru, we will be ministering to people helping with work projects, and through drama in parks, orphanages, schools, neighborhoods, and churches. After each drama presentation or work project, we’ll have the opportunity to share one-on-one with the Nationals and lead them to Jesus with the help of volunteers from local churches. These local church representatives will get each new convert’s name and address for follow-up and discipleship. The local churches truly appreciate our willingness to come and assist them with their community! This summer we have the ability to stay for a third week in Cusco, and minister to young girls and women.
Another reason we feel God pulling us towards these trips every year is because of the incredible Christian environment. Being surrounded by teens, just like us, with the same love for God that we have, is something we don’t get to experience in our day to day lives. As we continually pour out our love for Jesus and share the word of God with the natives every day, we are also being poured into spiritually, through various speakers every night, morning devotionals, and worship.
Please pray for us (Hannah, Amanda & Sophie) and for the folks of PERU to open their hearts to the love of God and for the lost to be saved. To learn more about our mission trip, visit the website: www.neverthesamemissions.com
