Country

Peru is segmented by the impressive Andes Mountains, running parallel with the Pacific coast to the west. Over 60% of the country is covered by the dense Amazon jungle where fishing and agriculture are the way of life.

Evangelical Christianity is growing in Peru, especially among the Quechua and Amazonian people. New Bible translations are also being published, creating new opportunities for the Gospel to be presented. Still, there is much work to be done.
