Our mission is to love as many children as possible, while making Jesus famous along the way.
Our vision is to be a House of Light (Casa de Luz) for the children, teens, and families who live on the hillsides of Comas and Carabayllo, Peru. These are two of the poorest districts of Lima.
We are pursuing this vision by operating a community center where our Peruvian staff loves, mentors, and ministers to the children and teens who live on the hillsides. We let them know that Jesus is the One who saves, the One who loves, and the One who provides. We offer them community, leadership training, biblical teaching, a safe place to hang out, computers where they can do their homework, and access to nourishing meals. We employ teens from the area that engage with our community centers and grow through our leadership and mentoring and invest back into their communities. The impact of this work naturally spreads into the community as the families of these children and teens see the lives of their kids transformed. Our desire is to establish additional community centers in Comas and Carabayllo.
