Over 1,100 Churches from 58 countries came together to do an online marriage conference during this tough year of pandemic.

379,000 screen joined in an amazing display of unity throughout the Latin American Church.
We're grateful for Winshape Marriage and all the churches that decided to be part of this historic gathering.
(Conference was held again for Europe on Sept 11&12 and another 32,000+ couples joined in)
Small Groups Season 2
Another great small group season got wrapped up here at our church. We went from 800+ small groups at (pre-covid) and ended this last season with 1,600+ small groups.
Last month we had an end of the season event for our Freedom Small Groups, all the small groups that use a particular guide book and focus of living in freedom in Christ Jesus. We had 651 screens with us live in the same zoom to hear our pastor encourage and pray for them all. We had participants from 12 countries on three different continents and 45 different cities outside of our province here in Peru. Seriously mind-boggling to be able to have so many people there to celebrate the Freedom they had found in Jesus.
Since the beginning of the quarantine and the "State of Emergency" and through the end of August, here in Peru Camino de Vida has been able to serve in tangible ways the needs of 141,967 people. We are blessed to be a blessing.
