Ica, Peru


In August of 2007, an 8.0 earthquake shook the central coast of Peru.  40,000 homes were destroyed.  An estimated 120,000 people were left homeless.  Since that time, there has been great progress made in the reconstruction efforts, but many families still remain in poorly constructed shacks with limited access to water and hygienic services.

In this time of crisis many evangelical churches and organizations have been providing relief services by helping to remove debris and rebuild homes.  A spiritual awakening is occurring and people are now open to the gospel more than ever before.

YWAM Minneapolis has developed a close working relationship with El Shaddai Community Church, located in the city of Ica.  This church has overseen the rebuilding of thousands of homes in the Ica region; helping families in areas of practical need while proclaiming the hope of Jesus Christ.

Your group will have the opportunity to continue in the reconstruction effort.  This year, our teams will also be contributing to the building of a new facility for El Shaddai.  Other ministry will include street evangelism (dance/drama/testimony) and children’s programs.

When your week is over, go sand surfing in the dunes, take a dune-buggy ride, or simply relax at an oasis in the desert.
