Until recently, many residents of Misca, Peru were suspicious when ATEK staff members offered to distribute Bibles in their Cusco Quechua language and share the gospel. Some even threw stones at the ATEK workers, forcing them to leave the village. Then a strong earthquake rocked Misca this past September, killing eight of the town’s 130 residents and leaving most homes and other buildings severely damaged. The grieving townspeople have since invited ATEK to return and teach them from God’s Word. Like the poles now propping up the town’s ancient, fractured church building (pictured above), ATEK provides support to Quechua churches and communities through ministries that help them access God’s life-giving Word in their heart language.
