Art Exhibit: ELS Peru Gospel Mission 1972-78
October 10 - November 3
ELS Peru Gospel Mission
A snapshot of the first decade, 1972-1978
Bringing the Mission Home
“The purpose of the photos were to make the mission real – to make it belong to the people back home as well.”
Peru is a Catholic country, but these new communities grew so fast and were so poor that there were few if any local churches. Struggling families in new living situations and underserved by the church were some of the factors that made this a logical place for the ELS to start a new mission.
There will be no public presentation, but we plan to bring this beautiful exhibit to the public in a virtual format.
