Ways to Serve

Yanesha Long Term Experts

San Ramon and Iscosazin, Peru

The Yanesha people live in the central Amazon jungle of Peru (about 13 hours from Lima by bus). Although they have their own church association, the 24 pastors have little or no training, and they want some! Their physical needs are also great, as the average family income is about $40 US per month. Even though most farm a few acres of land, this cannot cover medical emergencies, travel, educational expenses for their children, and sometimes even food. This ministry is focused on developing, empowering, and releasing Yanesha church leadership to reach the next generation and other ethnic groups in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. Holistic ministry is an essential part, including clean water efforts and medical assistance, to improve their quality of life and ability to thrive.
