CCC’s New Lighthouse in Village One

In the fall of 2017, CCC’s newest Village One Lighthouse was finished. We are so grateful and thankful for the Geezer Ministry from CCC and for the many people who helped gut, paint, carpet, and remodel to make this house into a home!

We are excited to introduce you to the family who will live in the Lighthouse! Jordan and Meghan Robertson and their 6-month-old daughter Addy will be missionaries to this neighborhood. Please pray for them as they settle into their new home and begin relationships with their neighbors.

Update from Scott and Tami Wade

Scott and Tami Wade are CCC International Workers serving in Peru at Camp La Joya. In 2017, CCC’s Kids Connect collected $1,322.75 to help send Peruvian kids to camp for a week during their summer months!

Thank you so much for giving us such great news! The CCC kids are incredible and we thank God for their continued prayers and support. Summer camps started several weeks ago and we are happy to report that the weather was not a hindrance this year, unlike last year. At Kids Camp, we had new kids attend, including one from our church named Candy. I spoke with her and asked her what she loved and learned from this camp. She stated that everything at camp was great, but that she especially loved the teaching! To have an 8-year-old tell you that makes our hearts warm with delight 

and gratefulness!

We could not host these camps without the many volunteers and counselors, mostly college students who take their summers off to help with these camps. God has provided in so many ways, such as through the money Kids Connect collected. This money has allowed children from the valley to attend camp, who otherwise couldn’t afford to go. Approximately 22 children will attend the camps this year because of this fundraising! We feel so blessed and grateful for how God has used this ministry to reach the many children in Peru. We love that the kids in the U.S. have loved without borders. This speaks of their hearts and desires to serve, not only through the fundraising, but through their prayers and desire to serve their friends from far away.

Please pray for our water situation, as the water has been shut off. We are working on finding another source through a well. Please pray for the parents of the kids, as some are without their children for a week. Many parents need farming and field work assistance from their children. We pray God is preparing the hearts of those who desire a closer walk and relationship with Jesus.
