Earlier this month, Scripture Union Peru hosted it’s third national conference in Kawai for all of it’s staff members, volunteers and directors. Since the conference was just a few weeks after our return to Lima, it was a great opportunity to see all of our friends and co-workers all in one place and be able to catch up with them during the week at the beach!
The theme of the conference was “Somos Familia” (we are family) and all of the sessions talked about the history, principles and ideology of the movement. It was a great opportunity for each of Scripture Union’s six ministries to interact together (something which doesn’t typically happen on a daily basis) and for staff members all over the country to get to know each other.
Each ministry director led a morning devotional and each day an invited speaker was asked to present something relating to the theme of the week. One of the most principle ideas of the Scripture Union movement worldwide is the use of volunteers to expand the ministry and many of the sessions talked about the importance of volunteers.
I was asked to document the week-long conference and wanted to share some of the photos from the sessions.
It was a great week with friends while we learned about the history and principles of Scripture Union’s work in Peru.
