Devastating Floods in Peru in March 2017 displace Tens of Thousands

Mudslides have struck across the Andean nation where dozens have been killed and many of the hardest hit are those who can least afford it.

Two years ago on their mission trip, Phyllis and Bruce Ehlers and Pastor Jason Collins met Anderson Sanchez, a priest in Lima, Peru and entered into a working relationship with him. Anderson has been helping many of those effected by the floods. The Church of the Cross has provided financial support to Father Sanchez for the purpose of providing water to those who are unable to get potable water. The 12 large containers provided as many as 24 families with water for two weeks. The Church of the Cross is pleased to have been able to assist our Brothers and Sisters in Christ in the middle of this crisis. Praise God.
