New Mission Post in Villa El Salvador

San Andres is a new mission post in Villa El Salvador. Following the Eucharist on 20th August the Bishop was taken to visit the outreach by members of the mission team, which is led by Seminarian, Ruben Mancilla. It is an initiative of the Church of Jesus the Saviour, whose priest is the Rev Juan Carlos Marces.
Villa El Salvador is one of the largest municipal authorities in Lima, to the south of the city, and in the past thirty years has grown from nothing to over one million people. And people are still arriving to take over the desert areas which surrounds it, living to begin with in makeshift shelters of wicker panels and boarding, without sanitation, water and light. Pray that the Anglican Diocese may know how best to repond to the enormous needs and have the means to do so.
