For months our Lutheran mission congregation in Los Olivos, Peru was unable to meet for in-person worship, due to the lockdowns. On November 15th, they were finally able to gather together for the long-awaited dedication of this beautiful new worship facility and to celebrate the Sacrament of the Altar.
Although the Covid-19 situation is seeing little improvement in Peru, the Church continues to be a beacon of hope in the community, reaching out with the Gospel, and sharing His mercy with those in need.
Rev. Walterson Junior Siewert Lang joined the Peru church planting team as an Alliance missionary in 2019. A native Paraguayan, he adds not only multicultural flair but also invaluable church planting experience, a plus for his young colleagues; he’s also trilingual.
