GFU Engineering Peru Serve Trip

The Peruvians in the jungle villages along the Amazon river face many challenges every day, such as the lack of clean water, flooding, food shortages, electricity needs, and training for the local Christian pastors. During the summer of 2019, a team of 6 George Fox University engineering students and 2 faculty members plan to partner with local missionaries from Jungle Master Ministries and BMS World Mission to continue working on these challenging issues.

My name is David Bacher. I am a Junior Mechanical Engineering Major at George Fox University. This summer, I have the incredible opportunity to join a group of fellow engineering students in traveling to Peru to lend our design and problem-solving skills to the community of Nauta.

While in Peru, we will apply skills and knowledge gained in the classroom in order to improve the peoples' access to electricity and clean water, things we take for granted at home. More importantly, we will be able to show the people the love of Jesus and in so doing, grow our own faith.

You can be a part of our journey as well by donating. We thank you so much for your support!

Days Left to Reach Our Goal

Rather than showing up once, building something and leaving, our goal is to cultivate an ongoing partnership between GFU engineering students, JungleMaster ministries, BMS, and the Peruvian people. This being our fourth year, we hope to be a trusted source of encouragement and support for this community for many years to come. As we learn from each other and help to empower local leaders and pastors, we endeavor to meet the practical and spiritual needs of Peruvians living in the jungle in ever-increasing ways. In order to accomplish this goal, we need to raise at least $21,000 for travel costs and engineering equipment.
