Relief Efforts by SIM for the Flooding in Peru

¡¡Fuerza Hermanos!!

26 Mar 2017

Today, SIM missionary Chris Conti visited the Vitarte (a neighborhood of Lima) Evangelical church to meet with the pastor and his wife and others.  The church feels called to help an area called Carapongo where most of the people lost their homes and everything they owned.   There are about 40 families affected in this way.  A 'community pot' (someone cooks and everyone eats) has been started but many don't even have plates or bowls to eat off of!  Relief funds will be used to provide tents, blankets, repellent, food and medicines as soon as possible.  Your donations to the SIM relief fund help make this possible.

Pumps for Huarmey

25 Mar 2017

One of the churches that SIM Peru is partnering with in the flood relief efforts is the Lima Calvary Chapel Church.  Yesterday, SIM used your donations to purchase three gas-powered pumps that will be used to pump muddy water out of homes in Huarmey, one of the cities hardest hit by the flooding.   Huarmey is located about four hours up the coast from Lima.  Calvary Chapel planned on distributing clean water, food, medicines and the physical labor to help remove mud from homes in Huarmey starting today.  Pray that all our relief efforts can be done in a loving way, meeting the needs of those who need it most.
