Jaqaru is a Jaqi language, meaning “human beings.” Aymara and Kawki are related languages. These languages arose out of Wari which preceded the Inca Empire and flourished for 400 years. These speakers are found in the Lima region in the Yauyos province and Cachuy and Tupe villages. They are mostly Catholic, however, less than .2 percent are Evangelical.
Engagement // What’s Happening Now
ChildHope began its ministry in Latin America Caribbean in 1963. They now represent 300 schools in 21 countries. They provide education in a Christian environment, medical and dental care and a place to learn about God. Pray for their schools in Peru that they would reach Jaqaru children.
Sustainability // The Bigger Story
The LAC World Missions regional site states, “Our strategy is to join hands and resources with our brothers from the national churches as they have emerged as a great missionary force. With strong collaboration between the North Americans and our Latino brothers, we have a much larger, stronger, and better-equipped team to reach the unreached.”
Partnership // Move Beyond
- Pray God guides the collaboration to reach unreached tribes in Peru.
- Pray for church plants to disciple Jaqaru Christians.
- Pray for spiritual awakening on Jaqaru churches.
