Iquitos, Peru

Video: Building church leaders in Peru

By Sharon Norton
Monday, May 8, 2017

​Christopher is a teenager who has grown up in the Mennonite church in Iquitos, Peru, and has responded to the invitation to give back. At 16, he now is a vital part of the children’s ministry in one neighborhood of the city. He has found that he has something to give these kids, and doesn’t need to wait until he’s older. 

As 1 Timothy 4:12 says: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in behavior, in love, in faith, and in purity.” Watch this video and be inspired to see how you can join in what God is doing in your church and in your neighborhood. Let’s all raise the standard for the youth in our community to get involved in leadership and to be an example for the children and youth around them. Now is the time!
