Operación San Andrés (OSA) is a faith-based, non-governmental organization dedicated to transforming the community of Collique, Peru through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
- We believe that Jesus lived the ultimate human life, one without sin. In obedience to God, he died an atoning death and was bodily resurrected from the dead.
- We further believe that every person is beloved by God equally and is worthy of fundamental respect and care required to meet such persons’ basic physical and spiritual needs.
- We further believe that the purpose of life in this world is to come to know God through the revelation of Jesus, and, inspired by this revelation, to do as Jesus did, caring for those in need and teaching of God’s abounding love.
Because of our belief in Jesus, his Resurrection and Divinity, and our belief in the fundamental right for all to receive the respect and care to which they are entitled as beloved of God, we, guided by prayer, led by conscience and directed by the authority of Scripture, have formed Operación San Andrés to care for those in need in Collique, Peru, as God directs us, responding to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of persons in this community and offering each person an invitation to come to know and follow Jesus personally.
