Cornerstone foundation:

  A Thirteen Year old young Muslim named Sheikh Abdul accepted Jesus through the South Korean Missionary in State Orissa. During 1997 and later he was ex-communicated from his family for the cause of Christ. The God who called him started opening door in his so that he may nourished and grounded in his word and experience that Jesus is real true only God who gives life.  Few year after in 2004 he imparted his experience and knowledge of the word of God to central India theological Seminary Itarsi (M.P) India.

Desires to go to the Mission Field:

‘All the easy places are taken.’ This axiom of modern missions quickly sums up where remaining missions work needs to be done. There is a reason the unreached and unengaged people groups still do not have access to the Good News.

These people groups who do not know of Jesus are typically in areas where the church is not preach the salvation Gospel.  Unreached are in often in the middle of deserts, hidden in , lost in urban slums, living a nomadic lifestyle, or living on small area.  Reaching them will not be easy for a variety of reasons: dangerous roads, or extreme weather.

Many Christians are risk adverse and are not willing to go to these people. It may also be true that other Christians are perhaps foolhardy. It became clear that people that trying to reach there was widespread disagreement among Christians about this burden.

Many condemned and a few disagree to fulfill the great commission.

Peru needs different streams of focus:

community evangelisation, and children’s evangelisation, adopting special projects and targeting un-reached groups.

Peru needs to promote a reading culture, providing Christian literature in a variety of subjects to meet the spiritual, emotional and psychological needs of the local community.

Peru needs at least informal education to train those willing to serve locally and overseas, and to equip the churches who are willing to stand behind them. Church needs to developed in knowledge of Cross Cultural Communication and Missions, as well as a variety of curriculums for workshops to equip and train the national church.

Church has to learn to bring hope to prisoners, high risk children, orphans, needy communities; providing crisis prevention, education and distributing goods.  May God always be glorified with our lives and service!


Lydia and I got married on July 26, 2007 after our graduation, her Masters of Divinity and after my own Masters of Theology.We were at Central India Theological seminary for eight years as a Theological professor. During our seminar life God had directed both of us toward service for him to unreached. During that time God gave us opportunities to serve in a local English and Hindi speaking church. God has blessed us with a son and a daughter, and we were enjoy serving the Lord in India.

My marriage was a cross-culture.  My wife Lydia was indian pandit and me Sheikh Abdul from Muslim Community.  Unexpectedly we happened to connect with respected William (la Misión, Ica, Peru).
We starting knowing his passion and dedication and the way he has been available to the unreached .
We felt burden for Peru acknowledging I am the right person.

We press towards to upgrade ourself to learn the local language in order to serve the Lord in Peru.  My Children in the age of 7 and 13 so for them language will not be difficult.  .  

We thank God for so clearly direction in our steps over the years and the years to come.
