Team of 99 Christians serves 900 children
A team of 99 church members, ranging from 13 to 81 years old and representing congregations in Texas, Kentucky, Ohio and New Mexico, participated in a mission trip to the South American nation of Peru. The team played with and served about 900 residents of the Community of Children in La Ventanilla, Peru. The Westover Hills Church of Christ in Austin, Texas, has coordinated the trip for five years, said Scott Warner, the church’s outreach minister. The church also oversees a sponsor-a-child program with the orphanage. For more information, see www.peru-sagradafamilia.com.
