New HEadquarters construction
Multi-Story Ministry Center in Jicamarca.
In 2008, when we first started traveling to Peru, we began looking for property. Nine years later, in 2017, God brought a tremendous opportunity to us in the form of a 1.25 acre lot with an existing structure that has the ability to support 6 floors. The first floor has been completed, along with water, electrical, and sewer, which gives us 7,200 sq. ft. of space ready to use. We feel the Lord is prompting us to keep the first floor as a church location for Iglesia Sin Frontera (Without Borders Church).
The second floor will be used to house short term mission teams. The very first team will do so on June 12, 2019. Among many other benefits like travel efficiency and storage facilities, having our own headquarters locally will also allow our administration to be financially self-sustaining. Visiting groups will be able to secure low cost living quarters and meals on-site rather than having to book much more expensive accommodations two hours away in Mira Flores. These funds then help provide additional resources for the ministry and local community.
Thank you for partnering with us as we build hope in Peru!
$375,000 needed to finish purchase and second floor construction.
Construction estimates have come in at $140,000 for the 2nd floor and $140,000 for the 3rd floor. As well as $95,000 to complete the purchase of the building.
The 2nd floor will have a kitchen, dining room, dormitories, and bathroom facilities with showers. This floor will also serve as a meeting area so that our summer missions teams have a quiet place to pray and plan.
The 3rd floor will host additional dormitories and meeting rooms so that our visiting missions teams do not have to stay hours away in Mira Flores.
On average we have over 100 volunteers coming to Jicamarca every summer, as well as smaller teams coming throughout the year.
In total, this structure was engineered to support 6 floors, giving us room to expand to 3 additional floors over the upcoming years. We're already dreaming about the possibilities of medical/dental facilities and additional offices to facilitate our Reimagine Peru staff, interns, and volunteers.
"Is this a God opportunity or a good opportunity? It's both."
