MJVI/BCWE has been involved in the construction and operations of the Peru Bible College for many years now and it’s always a thrill to bring an update of what is happening. Also very exciting is the fact that a new website has been implemented to keep you informed on the three major ministries in Peru that we partner with. The Peru Bible College, the Jacob Hunter Christian School and the TV Station Channel 33 Arequipa. The website is at the end of this article and will have frequent news and information about the ministry there.
Classes started back at the Bible College last Tuesday March 20th with 14 new students for the fall semester. Its fall south of the equator even though there are not many trees in Arequipa. There are 23 students living on the campus and 43 total studying for the gospel ministry. You may remember the graduation of six men last December as they completed their four years of study. Those men will be working as full time pastors, missionaries or preachers in their churches.
The strategic nature of this college goes beyond South America as its graduates also serve in America, Morocco, Burkina Faso West Africa and are studying to go to other countries as well. Spanish is also among the world’s most used languages. Around 329 million people speak it as their native language is 44 countries. Graduates from the college are also trained in language acquisition to work in countries where Spanish is not the primary language.
