The cornerstone of the Peru Mission is the Family to Family (F2F) Ministry. Several hundred Peruvian families are sponsored by St. John's parishioners and there are more to be served. The minimum commitment is $25.00 per month to provide food and necessary supplies for a family for approximately one half month. The exchange of letters between the sponsoring and the sponsored families is encouraged in order to develop close relationships which are a blessing for all those involved. For more information on letters see the links to the left of the page.
Sending Special Gifts
You may want to expand your relationship with your Peruvian family by sharing specific gifts with them. The shipment of your gifts is facilitated by St. John's Mission Board with approximately three large container shipments per year. Please watch the church bulletin and the NEWS section of this website for shipping dates.
As you become closer to your family, the Holy Spirit may lead you to assist them in even more ways. Working with St. John's liaisons your specific requests can usually be accomplished.
If you are interested in participating in the F2F Ministry, please contact Stephanie Simpson at
to adopt a family.
