JANUARY MISSION FOCUS
Cathedral of the Good Shepherd
As most of you know, Christ Church has been supporting the work of this Church for many years. At one time we helped to support a Minister for a Church plant; at another time we supported them by selling arpilleras made by women in some of the poorest areas of Lima. We are now supporting students, who are members of the Church, to complete their studies so that they, in turn, can support their extended families and get the families out of poverty.
Currently the Church needs prayer as their finances have plummeted because the Coronavirus has stopped any live services. These were an important source of income. This means they can do less outreach work. They are worried too about losing contact with their congregation as many are unable to have access to Services via Zoom. They were building contacts with Students and this too is much more difficult at present. This is all against a background of political instability.
Please pray for the Church, its outreach work in many forms and for greater political stability in Peru.
