Why Alto Cayma?
Our passion for transformation among the people of Alto Cayma began in 2006 when John and Carol visited Arequipa, Peru for the first time. We witnessed the deep need and brokenness in people's live, but also a real humility and openness to the truth of God and His Word. Our interaction in the community has included work in the local community center, visits to the orphanage and homes of the people, and opportunities to talk with individuals, sharing meals with them and learning of their way of life and hope for the future. Since that initial visit, we had other opportunities to share life with the families of Alto Cayma, and we continue to be compelled to share the love of Jesus Christ and His Good News in this rapidly expanding settlement in Arequipa.
