Recently, severe rains have battered the nation of Peru, causing widespread flooding in areas that usually receive a half-inch of rain each year. In the city of Trujillo, which has experienced flash flooding after 10 days of heavy storms, virtually every significant avenue and street has turned into a raging river. Peru Mission, a ministry partner of Redeemer based in Trujillo, which hosted a Redeemer mission team in the summer of 2016, has requested our support as they respond to this national tragedy.
