If you are looking for the adventure of a lifetime, consider joining Grace Church next summer for its 10th Anniversary Trek through the Andes Mountains of Peru. Each summer of team of trekkers heads to the Cordillera Blanca Region where the mountain peaks soar to 22,000 feet. This is not a missions trip for the faint of heart or the weak kneed. This is real adventure with a purpose. The purpose of the trek is to distribute New Testaments in both Spanish and in the Quechua dialect. The long-range goal is to literally blanket the region with the Word of God (hence the name, “The Andes Blanket”).
The web site, www.andesblanket.org, is up-to-date with the trek information for 2009. There are two treks set to depart in mid-June and late-June. The first trek is lead by Greg Rummo and will depart from the East Coast of the USA; the second trek is lead by Phil & Phillip Winfield and will depart from the Central USA. The cost is $600 plus air fare for 13 days of unbelievable scenery, intense missions, and a lifetime of stories.
