This project is to build for Segadores Mission a two-structure missionary home base for multipurpose use in the Amazon jungle region of Peru where their missionaries are currently working. The base located on a river across from tribal lands will place the missionaries in much closer proximity to the target areas.
Segadores (an indigenous mission) began in 1963 as a ministry to mobilize and disciple youth for missionary outreach. Over the years, Segadores missionaries have planted dozens of churches in unevangelized areas. Leaders of Segadores continue to respond to the vision God gave them to reach the unreached tribal groups in Peru. Young Peruvian missionaries are trained and sent out to live with an unreached tribe, to share the gospel and plant churches. As a result, believers from several tribes are now missionaries to their own people groups.
There are six tribes in the region, but the churches are weak and are very much in need of leadership grounded in the Word of God. Also, there are three tribes in the region that are unreached, and Segadores is seeking to do pioneering church planting among them all.
