Can you hang drywall? You’re invited to Peru!


Can you hang drywall?

Would you be willing to take an opportunity to use your gifts and skills to serve the Lord on a building project in Peru?

Sheridan Stanton is helping the newly-planted Calvary Baptist Mission in Huanuco, Peru, to construct a church building. They are in need of both financial funds and construction laborers to finish the project.

We are looking for a ‘Bezalel’ or ‘Aholiab’ [see Exodus 31.1-6] who will give your Spirit-given abilities to the Lord for this building.

Specifically, their most pressing need right now is drywallers to help the Peruvians finish the inside construction. The Peruvians are very hard-working and skilled craftsmen in the building methods they are used to – but they are not used to hanging drywall.

So, Sheridan is asking for volunteer drywall-hangers to come down from the States and work with them on this project for a week and train the Peruvians as they work with you.

Jim Miller is organizing a team to go to Huanuco the week of March 16-24. The estimated costs for the travel expenses are less than $1,500.00 – but once you are there, Sheridan and Anita will host and treat you better than royalty.

Are you willing to pay your own way to Peru and give your body as a living sacrifice (Romans 12.1) in this mission service? “…If any man minister (serve), let him do it as of the ability which God gives: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to Whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (1 Peter 4.11)

You will need to call Jim Miller at (423)384-1776 [or email him:] for all the details, but the broad plan is this: you will arrive in Lima, Peru, on Sunday evening, 16 March. Jim and other craftsmen will meet up with you there in Lima, and you will make your way to Huanuco to work on the construction project. Then, you will be returning to Lima to fly back home on Monday, 24 March.

“And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for you serve the Lord Christ.” (Colossians 3.23-24)
