There will be two new deacons in the South of Peru, LUIS VIZCARRA and JUAN MARCOS AYALA.
The date of their ordination has been set for Saturday, July 31 in Cristo Redentor, Arequipa. Both ordinands have been trained in the Diocesan Seminary in Arequipa.
Luis will continue to serve in the Mission Santa María Magdalena, Juliaca, and Juan Marcos in Mission San Lucas and Mission Santiago Apóstol, both in Arequipa.
Juan Marcos is perhaps better known to those who have visited Arequipa as the owner of the Hostal Paraiso, together with his wife Vicki, where visiting mission teams stay. He was converted during the visit of one of the first teams to visit Arequipa several years ago.
For the past few months Juan Marcos has been ministering in Santiago Ap. and has drawn together a growing congregation. He can be seen in the photo with the congregation in the half built church. Nestor Mogollón, another lay minister who assists Juan Marcos, can be seen in the front right of the photo.
These are the first Anglican ordinations in Arequipa and the first outside Lima.
