During this internship, you would serve long-term workers in Peru by helping them set up outreaches in the local community.

There may also be the option to help with an English teaching or sports ministry as part of your internship experience.
This internship provides opportunities to minister among a variety of groups, including other cross-cultural workers, local church leaders, missionary kids, and local people who live in remote villages that are still largely unreached with the gospel.
The purpose of SIM Peru is to glorify God by partnering with the Peruvian Church to fulfill Christ’s commission. The primary team strategy is to connect with the Peruvian Church and come alongside them as they reach out to the least reached of their communities. There are many remote villages where SIM Peru workers are seeking to work alongside Peruvian church planters and support them in their ministries. They engage in translation, evangelism among children and adults, mobile dental clinics, health talks, and education.
The Peru team consists of nine different nationalities.

Ideally, and when possible, we arrange for our interns to stay with a Peruvian family. This provides the opportunity to practice language and learn more about the culture.
This internship is a strategic opportunity to become more familiar with the geographic and cultural landscape of Peru. From modern cities to smaller towns to remote villages, the SIM Peru team has a great amount of variety in the places where we serve. While you will primarily be focused in Abancay, a large town, you will be able to travel to remote villages, as well as to other parts of Peru. Come prepared to be flexible and fit into ministry wherever it is needed, joining in what God is already doing and learning to listen what God wants to teach you. This will require humility, love, perseverance, and a learning attitude. Ultimately, SIM Peru’s deepest desire is that you would be brought closer to the Lord through your time serving in Peru and can witness God at work through the ministries.
