They are located in the HuanĂ¡co region of Peru.

There are two different type of people, those that live in the city of Ambo and those that life in the surrounding villages in the mountains around the city. Those that live in the villages are mostly Quechua speaking and agricultural workers.

What are their needs?
Many of their needs are as simple as providing for their families, but more than that for the local pastors and their work in spreading the Gospel and planting churches.
