Camp La Joya Ministries (89270)
Camp La Joya is a 60-acre camp which serves evangelical churches and Christian schools in the department of Arequipa in Peru. Its location in Vitor Valley makes it ideally suited for camp ministry. Taking people out of the pollution and business of the city into a quiet, green river valley frees them to refocus spiritually and be impacted by the beauty of God's creation and His powerful Word.
Camp La Joya has three focuses:
Operating costs have dropped for several great reasons. We now train and use many more volunteers. In 2013 more than 100 volunteer staff helped especially during our summer camp season. Raising some of our own food has reduced costs as well. This year we raised and butchered two cows, two sheep, three pigs and we grew a half ton of potatoes plus vegetables and herbs.
Although operating costs have decreased, significant needs remain. If you would like to donate to Camp La Joya, please contact your nearest SIM office or give online to project 89270. Thank you and God bless!
