Peru – Sharon Malcolm
Keep up with the Peru Outreach at: http://peruvillager.blogspot.com.
Sharon’s first few years on the mission field were in Central Guatemala and for the past seven years she’s given her full time to the villages near the town of Yurimaguas in the Amazonian jungles of Peru.
In this work Sharon has developed practical and safe ways to improve the quality of life for villages while sharing the life and love of Jesus Christ.
With the help of teams from Winding Creek and other church churches she has installed rainwater catchment systems, in-hut stoves, and latrines. These have provided clean drinking water, a safe and healthy means of cooking and improved sanitary conditions.
Just as important, her service projects have helped develop trusted friendships that have opened the door to share the gospel, resulting in a number of conversions to Christ.
