After 10 years serving in Peru...
Here's what we've been able to accomplish together:
150 new homes built
100+ volunteers yearly
29 team trips since 2008
Purchase land and begin construction on multi-story ministry center
Rebuilding Homes and Lives
Reimagine teams average about 30 people per team with at least 3 teams flying in and out of Lima, Peru every summer. Our construction teams are the backbone of our mission in Santa Rosita, a city located in one of Lima's largest and poorest districts, San Juan de Lurigancho. Teams focus on replacing thatched and/or cardboard dwellings with prefabricated wooden homes, cement floors (replacing dirt) and tin roofs (replacing plastic). We build relationships with local families as we work, which opens the door for us to share the love and message of Jesus Christ. We also do Bible studies with the children every day after lunch. Once the headquarters building is ready to receive teams, it is our desire to host many different ministry teams throughout the year. These teams will be Reimagine teams as well as other teams from other ministries.
Yhon & Debra
Now the President of Reimaginar Peru and full-time missionary since 2015, Yhon has known the English family for many years, being called hijo (son) by Linda since he was 12. Yhon and Debra minister to the families of Santa Rosita and facilitate all the summer missions teams.
An integral part of the team, Christian serves as our interpreter and works side-by-side in all of our construction projects. He ministers and interprets with integrity and is always led by the Holy Spirit!
Marisol, Yhon's sister, is an essential member of our team. She carries a unique ability to show unconditional love, and helps with logistics while our American teams are in Peru. She also faithfully serves the community.
Susana Ruth Benavides PereZ
For the past 4 years, we’ve watched Susana’s rare gift for loving all children in Peru. Through programs like Kidz Klub (Bible Study) and Krown Kidz (Children’s Church), she uses her knowledge of the Bible and her teaching gift to reach our children with the gospel of Jesus.
Pedro & Rocio
The Pastors of Sin Fronteras Iglesia (Without Borders Church), this beautiful couple operates under the oversight of the Reimagine Ministry. It is their desire to saturate Peru with the love of Jesus and see the church grow in areas in Peru that Reimagine is working.
The English family is very blessed to call Manual son. His light-heartedness and desire to grow in God make him an amazing member of the Reimagine team. He also serves on the security team. The Americans know that when he or Markitos speak, they need to listen, as safety and security are a top priority for the Americans.
Markitos is like a son to Greg and Linda. He serves as the head of the security team when the American teams are in his neighborhood in Peru. Over the years, Markitos has grown into an amazing young man, who loves the Americans, serves them well, and is a blessing to all.
