Andes Storying Team

Season: Summer 2024 (not published)

Date: May 28 - July 18, 2024

Description: There is great spiritual need in the Andes mountains of Peru, and you can be used by the Father to help meet this need! You will be formed into teams of 2-3 people to travel to indigenous villages in the Andes Mountains to assist in gospel work. Your team will work with a national partner in creative access projects, evangelism, and discipleship of new believers using bible storying. Many of the people we are trying to reach with the gospel are oral learners, meaning they learn best using stories, drama, music, and in community. You will participate in a training in Richmond, VA at the beginning of your service and a debriefing at the end of the summer with other students serving in the Americas on Summer Sojourners teams.
