Prayers for Peru

In 2018, my wife, my daughter and I were forced to move from Venezuela. The political, financial and social situation was critical and unbearable. We came to Lima after a long 5-day bus trip from Venezuela, through Colombia and Ecuador. We decide to emigrate convinced that God has called us to serve Him in Peru.  We wanted to bless families through Bible teaching, discipling and counseling. Two years later, we are thankful that the Lord has supported us in the midst of many difficulties.

We are currently serving at a local church in a Bible study group. Peruvian society is going through a critical degradation of the meaning of the term “Family”. Peruvian families need God desperately and I am asking you to pray with me for Peru and the ministries here.

At the same time, God has opened the door to serve him as a Virtual Assistant for Global One80. I help the organization with communications and operations, alongside three other Venezuelan professionals, who are also very vital to serve a team of eight countries now.  We thank donors who are willing to help Global One80 Operations Fund, which provides funding to support all international staff and the United States operations.



  • Launching New Spanish-speaking church: On March 1, Joaquin & Oneida Vargas launched the new campus of Iglesia Ncuentro at HiWay Baptist Church.
  • Rebuilding the Bahamas: A team from Washington Height Church in Ogden, Utah will be coming in March as part of our Hurricane Relief effort.
  • Mas Vida (Peru) is growing: Eliseo Macedo, our missionary in Cusco, Peru continues to grow, reaching out many young people for Christ.


  • Dominican Republic Ministry: We have a strategic alliance with Ministerios Bendición led by Felix Abreu, missionary with Missions Door. They continue growing; he recently finished his thesis for this Doctor of Ministry degree.
  • Ncuentro Network: We are launching in Arizona a ministry with Spanish-speaking church planters. We have three in process of assessment in Nogales, Payson and Phoenix and we have two church planters in the field already.  We are extending it to other church planters to provide an administrative hub, vision casting, coaching and training.


  • Financial Support for the Operations Fund of Global One80: $2,000 per month is needed.
  • Ministry Vehicle: We are looking for a small pickup truck. The vehicle will be used by Pastor Victor H. Arias and help with the transportation of ministry materials and outreach equipment.

Thanks for your faithful support and prayers for us. On a journey together to transform communities with the Gospel of Jesus, one life at a time.
