Trip to the
Asheninka People of Eastern Peru:
The visit to the Asheninka, who
live in the lowlands of Eastern Peru along several rivers that
feed the Amazon,
was my first foreign mission trip. It was a grueling trip but
special in many ways to observe the friendly people living in very
remote villages. They depend on the rivers for their primary - and
often their only - mode of transportation.
2000 Trip to
Marginal Urban Population Near Lima:
The following year, it was a return to Peru but this time a
mission outreach project among people from various areas of Peru.
Looking for a better life by moving to the outskirts of Lima, they
struggle to build their homes and seek good jobs. It is a hard
life for these new residents but they are open to hearing the
Join us as we share this time of discovery and personal
involvement in reaching others for Christ.

Part 1: Cassville to Pucallpa
(9:59) Download Part 1
Lima, the capital of Peru, is about 15 degrees south of the
equator and a thoroughly modern city with traffic jams, high rise
apartment buildings and churches.
Pucallpa, even with a population of about 250,000, is
considered a frontier city carved out in the jungle. The Ucayali
River, bordering the eastern edge of the city empties into the
Part 2: Pucallpa to Puerto Bermudez
The 160 mile road from Pucallpa to Puerto Bermudez was completed
in the mid-1980's as an effort by the Peruvian government to open
up more of the Amazon frontier. The road has become a problem
with drug trafficking and there now are three military check
points along the way. Driving is dangerous with few
accommodations. Despite the dangers and primitive nature of the
road, there was much to see and learn as we made our way south.
Puerto Bermudez to Belen
After lunch we loaded our gear in the peki-peki and were ready to
head down-river. Our peki-peki is a canoe shaped craft about 30
feet long and just over 3 feet wide with power supplied by a
nine-horsepower gas engine. A shaft is attached to the motor and
extends from the rear of the boat, driving a small propeller.
This allows for very shallow water operation.
Part 4: Belen to Home
After our usual breakfast
of oatmeal and raisins mixed with dehydrated milk and water, we
were back on the Apurucayali. This time we are going down river
for most of the trip, then a few miles back up the Pichis to
Amanbay for the night. From there, several more hours up
river to Puerto Bermudez and
hopefully a catfish dinner then a comfortable hotel room for the

Come to My Home
From all over Peru, people come to
Lima looking for a job and a better life. With little or
no money, they are making their homes in the mountain foothills of
Eastern Lima. It is here that many learn of Jesus Christ and have
invited Him into their lives.
The Andes of Peru
Peru's Central Highway is the well-traveled route across
the Andes. The winding road passes through tunnels, across rivers,
up steep mountain grades and narrow passes like Ticlio and
towns of Morococha and La Oroja. On this three-day
trip to Tarma and Huancayo, we will reach an
elevation exceeding 16,000 feet in a world much different than
