A few numbers from Christmas 2017:
2 Carol and Candles services
3 weeks of service from an American missionary
8 huge boxes wrapped as presents to explain the birth of Jesus
8 Christmas rehearsals
14 Christmas trees decorated
30 Peruvians to stuff gift bags
54 children and women with special needs received clothes
60 families received food baskets
3000 gifts bags (in 2 hours!)
3500 gift bags were made for the Christmas shows
These numbers give insight into the reach that Para Peru has established. However, the stats cannot reflect the heart impact that happened during the numerous Christmas productions.
Para Peru wants to give a special thanks to those who make Christmas happen every year, whether through financial support, trips to Ventanilla or a sacrifice of time to assemble the various projects necessary.
