What do 45 individuals from seven states in the USA have in common? They are all committed to Operación San Andrés and its ministry to the underserved residents of Collique on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. This group of 45, including doctors, nurses, dentists, a PharmD, an optometrist, and lay volunteers, traveled from their homes to Peru in October 2016. During the week, more than 1000 patients were treated in the medical, dental and eye clinics. The construction team built a house for a family in Collique, and other volunteers led a Vacation Bible School for about 60 children. Many lives were enriched during this time of ministry to the beautiful people of Collique, Peru.
