Kuyay Talpuy Planting Seeds of Hope Thank you so much for your expressed interest in sponsoring a Peruvian child’s education! Welcome to the “Kuyay Talpuy” program in San Juan de Iscos, Peru. Kuyay Talpuy means “sowing seeds with the love of God” in Quechua Wanca (the traditional language in Iscos) and we felt that it was an appropriate name for the new educational center that God has placed in our care. We are planting seeds of hope… seeds that we hope will grow into a bright future for the children we are here to serve. These children did not have the opportunity to

attend school until you came along and answered the need… you agreed to reach out and sponsor the cost of school supplies, books, uniforms, teacher cost, and hot lunches for a child who was spending his/her days in the streets or working in the fields because the cost of an education is just too much to bear for some families. We have always felt that we were called to sow seeds for the Lord, and we are so excited that He has opened this opportunity for us and for the children of Peru. Thank you so much for answering the call and for agreeing to serve Christ by offering love and financial support to His children.

Sending love to you from the children of Iscos,

Preparing the Soil Kuyay Talpuy will open it’s doors on August 10th, 2009. Right now, we continue to plan with the township of San Juan de Iscos, preparing the soil, so to speak. The mayor has given us a building for the center, but we need to do some work to get it ready for classes. We continue to work to find the remaining sponsors needed to have every child fully funded and the teacher and cook paid for before opening day. Our teacher, Milagros (her name means “miracles”) is working to prepare lessons and classroom materials, as well as contact the families and the children and prepare them for opening day. Our director, Darwin, is working on the finances, printing forms, meeting with

town and school officials, and seeking community involvement. Please pray for this time of preparation and finishing touches so that the center can open on time and with great success.
