Peru is a wonderful place to share God's love. The people there, both young and old, are so open to hear the gospel. There is a tremendous desire to simply have a place to worship God that they are coming to know through those that are willing to teach them.

Along Amazon River
Hi, I’m Carlita. I’m 12 years old and live in a village called Nina Rumi. I have four siblings, and we life with our grandmother.
There used to be nothing in this village, but when the Nina Rumi campus was built, I saw that people who cared had come to my village.
My family used to drink a lot, especially over the weekends, and sometimes during the week. I grew up with parents who were alcoholics. I felt that my parents did not show love to us, but instead loved only alcohol.
We were already poor but became even more so since my parents spent all their money on alcohol. So, my grandmother took me and my brothers to live with her. It was sad that she had to take us away, but alcohol had destroyed my family. My family isn’t the only one, either. Alcohol is a serious problem for many in my village.
The Catch the Vision International Nina Rumi campus is a beautiful place. The people there care about families in the village. They provide safe water. I used to have to walk long distances to get unclean water from the river, but now water is delivered right to my house!
CTVI also organizes programs for kids in the village. We call it Friday with Jesus. We learn stories about Jesus, play games, and have a good time. The program is helping me understand what Jesus’s love looks like. It is helping me forgive my parents for the hurt they caused me and my family.
I pray that alcohol would stop destroying families in my village, and that instead more people might know about the love and forgiveness of Jesus.
“If you have a voice within that is
stirring you to experience missions, I
invite you to take a gamble and
see what happens!”
“Amazing” only scratches the surface
of describing our experience!"
" I have felt Christs’ call to share His love
with the village people there.
I have provided medical attention to those
that would not have received the care they needed."

It is our goal to make sure all volunteers are welcome, well-rested, and most importantly make the best use of their unique God-given gifts and abilities. Enjoy a comfortable stay at the newly constructed Nina Rumi Campus, equipped with indoor plumbing, A/C, and electricity with standard US outlets. Buildings include three bunk houses with private restrooms, administrative building, and dining hall. Sleeping quarters are four volunteers per room in bunk bed style. The campus is secured with adequate lighting, privacy wall, security staff, and medical clinic on-site.
The water in Iquitos, Peru is not safe for drinking. Seeing this great need for clean drinking water, Water Missions International built a water tower and installed a water purification system on the campus. In the Summer of 2017, the system was dedicated to the people of the Nina Rumi village. This system provides clean water for the campus and community!
All meals will be provided while staying at Nina Rumi Campus in Iquitos, Peru. Enjoy American-type meals with a Peruvian flare prepared by our local chef.
