This is a story about a group of Christians to whom God gave a vision in the early 2000s for participation in God's Mission in South America. 

This group became a team, picked a city, and devoted itself to preparing for the mission ahead. The story over the last ten years is a complicated one—ups and downs, periods of learning, lots of changes—but a constant has been the Team Arequipa Newsletter and those supporters who read every issue. The newsletter serves as our lens to relive the story.

Hundreds of thousands of words have been written over the last decade, and you can find most of those here. In 2015, the two families who moved to Arequipa in September of 2008 move back to the United States. 

We who follow in their footsteps get to learn from their successes, failures, and—most of all—the legacy of Kingdom participation and proclamation that they leave behind in the Peruvian church. We are excited to be a part of this next chapter of Team Arequipa.

It’s God’s Mission. Here’s our part of the story.
