Peru is home to a wildly diverse geography, from pristine beaches on the western side of the country to the rugged barren Andes that separate the coast from the sweltering, green jungle, and you will catch a glimpse of that diversity as you travel from Lima to the jungle port town of Pucallpa. The people of Peru are as diverse as the terrain, as they have adapted to their surroundings through hundreds of years. The coastal city of Lima is home to people of European, Asian, and Quechuan descent. Lima is metropolitan and chic, overflowing with sleek buildings and international fusion cuisine. As you travel into the mountains, the pace of life slows down, and as you travel even farther east into the jungle, you step into a different time altogether.

When you travel to Peru with Group International Mission Trips, your week with the Shipibo people who live in Pucallpa will capture your soul, invigorate you with the beauty of God’s creation all around you, and remind you that no matter how far away from home you go, you can find brothers and sisters of the faith united together under the love of Christ.

You will be part of a truly unique ministry experience. Our ministry partner has devoted his life to serving and sharing the love of Jesus with the Shipibo people. Traveling by boat up the river, you will have an opportunity to interact with remote Shipibo villages, playing with children, and joining along in the ministry that a our partner has established over the last decades. You will spend your week serving alongside Shipibo, Peruvians, and fellow North Americans as you help build a church or a home for a small village of new believers. You’ll play games with countless Shipibo children and join together in worship with your new friends. You’ll come home with a new understanding of what it means to live simply and your faith will deepen.

How You’ll Serve

Here are examples of the types of projects you might be involved with:

  • Doing light construction and painting for ministries and churches in Pucallpa
  • Playing games, doing crafts, and participating in VBS with children

Our Partners

We partner with a Peruvian mission team that serves the Shipibo people. They have developed a method of teaching the Bible to the Shipibo that mimics the way they pass down their stories orally from generation to generation. The Shipibo culture is an oral one, which means more emphasis is placed on the verbal sharing of stories and traditions than on writing things down.

How do I book my international mission trip?

Is airfare from North America included in the international mission trip price?

Prices do not include airfare from North America. However, in Peru, our price includes the airfare from Lima to Pucallpa and Cusco.

What is your policy on deposits, payments, and cancellations?

To reserve space on a trip, a non-refundable $100/person deposit is due when you register. Final payment is due 60 days before departure. If you cancel your registration prior to the final payment due date, your deposit is non-refundable but any additional payments you have made up until that time are refundable. Once you have paid your final balance and are within 60 days of your trip, all money is non-refundable. If Group International Mission Trips makes the decision to cancel your trip due to inclement weather or political unrest, we will reschedule you to a different trip or refund your fees.

Are all meals included in the cost?

Most meals are covered as part of your registration, except for free days if you're serving in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Please see the detailed itinerary of your international trip for any exceptions.

What types of meals are served?

Most meals will be provided by our ministry partners, who have been carefully trained to prepare safe and nutritious meals for our teams. You will get a taste of local food on all of our trips, and some locations will include American food as well.

How strenuous are the activities and service?

While some mission trips are more physically strenuous than others, most international trips will include at least four 8-hour service days in hot and humid environments. Your group can work at the level of physical exertion with which they’re comfortable.

Are tips included in the cost?

Your international mission trip covers gratuities for meals in restaurants that are included for the week. Gratuities for porters or housekeeping staff if you stay in a hotel during your trip are at your discretion. Airport porters who help with your bags will expect to be tipped $1-$2, and if you participate in a guided tour or fun activity on your free day, you may want to consider tipping your hired guide.

Are the trips safe?

The safety of your group is a top priority for us, as we’re sure it is for you. In all the areas we serve, we take extra precautions to make sure you or your group is as safe as possible. Guided by our local, experienced ministry staff partners, we avoid situations that are inherently dangerous. We’re also proactive by choosing lodging facilities and transportation that are safe and reliable. Our International Mission Trip Advisor is glad to answer further safety questions.

Can you put together a custom trip for my group?

Probably. If you’re looking for a trip specially designed for your group, we may be able to accommodate that for you. We have several trips a year that we custom design for groups, at a date and location that fits their needs. Pricing and availability vary, but if you’re interested in a custom week, contact Robin at ralm@groupmissiontrips.com, or call 1-970-800-4000 for more information.
