I'm in Chimbote, Peru, with a group from Virginia (USA) who are making improvements to the Kindergarten classroom for the Cristo Redentor School (raising the roof so the room won't be so hot). As the only Christian school in a large barrio, Cristo Redentor is meeting an important need in the area. As an outreach of the Villa Maria Methodist Church, the school also provides outreach and care to the families of the students.
We have spent time with the faculty and students of the seminary training program sponsored by AFCI-Peru in Chimbote. The pastors use the Cristo Redentor building in the evenings for their classes. Ricardo Visurraga, National Director of AFCI-Peru, has arranged for the students to receive credit from the Evangelical Seminary in Lima. The school year begins in March and 25 pastors are signed up.
