Santiago and Elise Velasquez are World Reach missionaries serving in Lima, Peru since 2005 and 2006, respectively. The couple serve the Lord together at La Roca Christian Church in Jose Galvez and at a church they planted in Los Angeles, about one mile from La Roca Church. The Los Angeles plant has a growing group of young people attending services each week.
Santiago helps lead the Singles Ministry at La Roca, teaches in the Bible Academy, and travels during the year teaching in World Reach’s Mobile Bible Institutes. He assists with mission teams that come from the U.S. to Peru. Santiago’s ministry focuses on teaching and discipling through La Roca Christian Church, as well as the church plant in Los Angeles.
Elise teaches kindergarten and violin at La Roca Christian School. She also counsels at the pregnancy crisis center on the La Roca Campus.
Santiago and Elise’s prayer is that God will use their lives to reach others for the Savior! Pray for meetings the couple has with parents of youth in their homes to share about Christ and invite them to church. Pray also that the school children would see Christ in Elise’s life.
