Since 2009, we have partnered with Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky to take the gospel to the Quechua people of Cordova, Peru. Cordova is a small village in the Andes mountains where the people practice a mix of ancient paganism and mystical Catholicism. We have sent several small groups on short-term trips to Peru. We have also had three of our college students make summer-long trips to the village. Our prayer is that God would save these people, plant a gospel-preaching church in Cordova, and send Cordovans with the Gospel to the people in the surrounding villages.
As a congregation cooperating with the Southern Baptist Convention, we join with thousands of other congregations in sending long-term Gospel workers around the world through the International Mission Board. We have joined in praying for and encouraging one family in particular who are seeking to plant churches among an unreached people-group in Central Asia.
