We are honored to host your first virtual mission’s trip to Peru! One of our core desires is to connect people from their local church to all that God’s doing in our church, caminodevida, all the way in Lima, Peru. A move of God is needed now more than ever, and we are ready to take part in it. Our desire is to be on the front lines of what God is doing on earth in this time and we’re excited for you to join us.
This desire came out of the hearts of our senior pastors Robert and Karyn Barriger who founded cdv in 1987. Their drive and commitment to see God’s Kingdom present on earth as it is in heaven brought them to Peru over 30 years ago. Dedication to humanitarian aid and outreach has been part of the cdv flavor since its creation, and the impact has spoken volumes throughout the years.
One thing’s certain: the way we are doing things has changed, but the mission has not. In place of a mission trip where teams come to Peru and serve for a week or two, we are establishing a virtual experience to connect with people, churches, and organizations that want to be part of what God is doing in Peru. We want to make this experience as personal as possible while also providing informative content that accurately translates what what we’re doing, who we are connecting with, and why your hand in it matters. Each virtual experience will look slightly different because there’s movement and diversity of opportunity here and we want you to see that too. These experiences will include zoom calls with our team and leaders in our church, going live on various platforms to showcase various ministries and outreaches, and daily devotionals written personally by missionaries, staff, and volunteers of cdv.
One last thought we want to leave with you: churches were never meant to be just a place for people to gather on Sunday morning and have their own needs met. A thriving church takes what has been given to them (the love of God, talents and passions, resources) and in the spirit of Jesus, shares those gifts with those around them. You are a gift to us and we cannot stress enough how blessed we are to have your team serve with us this year – and hopefully years to come! Maintaining relationships is integral to successful teamwork and we are glad to have continued connection with you. Thank you.
The specific details of each trip can be decided in part by you! If you would like your church, or team take part in this new type of missions experience, fill out the form below, and we will be in contact within 24 hours to iron out further details. We would love to partner with you!
