When intense rains ravaged parts of Peru earlier this year, hundreds of thousands of families were left devastated and without homes.
And as the community sorted through the muck and mud, searching for whatever belongings remained, you were there to help them.
Thanks to your financial support, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Hand of Hope could partner with Mission Cristiana Camino de Vida to provide immediate assistance to the families struggling from this disaster.
We pumped houses; shoveled out dirt; mobilized hundreds of church volunteers; and bought gas-powered pumps, shovels, wheelbarrows, gloves and boots.
And even today, your partnership continues to help families in the flood-affected areas. When another need—for regular, nutritious meals—was unearthed, we knew we had to find a way to feed the people.
Traveling Feeding Centers
With the help of another church, we were able to purchase brand new food trucks, which serve as traveling feeding centers throughout Lima, Peru.
More than 13,000 meals have been distributed in 13 districts around Lima to date, with 5,000 additional meals served in Piura, Peru, during the disaster.
The most exciting part of it all is that the meals draw people to a place where they hear the life-changing message of the Gospel and walk away knowing how very much God loves them.
Thank you so much for helping people recover from natural disasters around the world.

We do not need to strive for power or hope to have power someday; we have power now! The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us (see Rom. 8:11) and we can be quickened (filled with life) by that power. This is not a onetime filling that slowly drains out of us as the days go by, but we can be filled day by day and even moment by moment. We can constantly and continually experience God’s presence and power in our lives. When we belong to Him, there is never a time when His power is not accessible to us.
