The Peru Mission Project
LifeChurch has partnered with Global Consulting Group in supporting the Peru Mission Project. LifeChurch helped to purchase 80 acres on which to build a working farm. The farm creates a sustainable income stream for the local church by providing fruits, vegetables, and fish for the local economy.
LifeChurch supports several Children’s Feeding Programs, a mission outreach. Every Saturday, missionaries with the Peru Mission Project, prepare a meal and deliver the food and a Bible lesson to 100-150 children in remote villages.
The Nagao family is delighted to be serving God in Peru. Dan and Ruth currently help manage a children’s library that was started by another missionary couple that has since returned to the U.S., but asked them to partner with them while they are away. The Nagaos combined this location to also serve as the Safe Haven youth center that they took over when previous missionaries returned home in 2015.
“We are blessed to say that we use this center for discipleship, classes, and a Deaf Mute church also meets here. Many kids from the youth center also help in a weekly feeding program. They have been raised up to share bible stories and the gospel with the children and mothers who come weekly, ” Ruth says.
They also lead the youth group at a local church in a Puerto Maldonado. Dan also takes monthly trips upriver to preach to local tribes in remote villages with other missionaries. He is also helping to teach and lead at week long bible study courses (throughout the year). The Nagaos say “Our goal is to bring Him glory and make His name known through His truth in discipleship as we serve Him in Peru.”
Every summer a group from LifeChurch goes on a mission trip to help with the Peru Project. They have helped in the construction of a house for one local missionary family. They also take part in the Children’s Feeding Program and the river ministry.

Steven and Kristin Jones work among Muslims in New York City. After 11 years on the Indian subcontinent, the Jones family has recently relocated to New York City to continue working with South Asian Muslims. Our people group is one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the city and there are many challenges as they adjust to life here. They live mainly in several concentrated neighborhoods and the Jones are living in one of these areas and continuing to reach out and share Jesus in ways such as storying and starting Bible study discovery groups in homes with families.
