Peru Mission Finds a New Home

New Casa San Agustin

New Casa San Agustin

A lot is happening here in Trujillo and we are so excited about all of the positive changes the Lord is doing to help us be more effective here in Peru!  Brad Ball has been named the new Executive Director for Christian Missionary Society.  While we are sad to see him and his family return to the States, we are thrilled about his taking over the reigns and leading us into the next stage of life as a Mission.  Chris Bolton has taken over as Administrator for Misión Reformada en el Perú.  He is already doing a great job of getting us organized and helping us grow into an even better organization. 

 

Our other biggest change is the location of a new office building.   Since closing SALI, the Fellows have been working out of our offices in the morning before going to teach English in the communities in the afternoon.  We have grown in our number of missionaries and basically have outgrown the current office and are literally busting at the seams.  So, we are renting this gorgeous new house on San Martin.   We are very excited about the new location as well as the opportunities we will have in the new office.  We will be able to have a SALI coffee house in the first floor, classrooms and conversation areas, and a library.  The second floor will house the missionaries, Fellows, and our accounting department as well as provide us a room for our meetings.  In the back of the property behind the main house and a nice garden area is another large space that we will utilize for teaching seminary classes.  It is really exciting to walk through and see all of the possibilities for outreach and our ministries in addition to our own internal needs. 

 

We had a workday today and everyone went and pitched in on scrapping paint, sanding, breaking ground for landscaping and whatever else was needed.  The building is an old beautiful building that needs a little work, but when finished will be extremely nice.  We have uncovered some gorgeous floors in our renovations.  The main entrance opens up to a staircase to the second floor that is solid mahogany.  The Fellows’ office space had carpet that when ripped up uncovered gorgeous cedar floors.  And the room where we will put desks or cubicles for the missionaries had pine flooring.  Amazing what all we have found as we begin to ready the property for our use.  We hope to move the offices in November 9.  Please be in prayer for our work as we physically move into new spaces and also as we navigate through a time of transition in our leadership that will provide us more direction and organization to be even more of a force for the Lord in Peru!
