Peru halts adoption by foreigners
In September of 2016, the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable populations, Peru's arm of government which regulates adoption, closed the door for all other countries wanting to adopt Peruvian children. This came about in response to the charges that were made (though not yet tried in court) against an American couple who adopted three Peruvian children.

The General Direction of Adoptions (DGA in Spanish) of Peru, has also proceeded to be reorganized with the commencement of an investigation of all those working in the DGA.

This has a grave impact on the homeless children of Peru, for while Peruvians do adopt, foreign adopt accounts for almost half of the Peruvian children who will find a new family. Since 2011 Italy has adopted over 285 Peruvian children and adolescents, Spain, at least 64. From 1999 to 2016, 458 Peruvian minors were adopted by Americans. From 2011 to 2016 the Peruvian government reports a total of 1,138 adoptions. Today there are approximately 15,000 Peruvian minors who can only dream about having a family.

While it appears that some other countries have resumed their Peruvian adoptions, the United States has not. Pray that these issues will be resolved quickly for the benefit of the children.

Strong Tower Christian School recently held their second theater with the performance of Max Lucado's "You Are Special". Many students got involved in everything from the lights and sound to the props and acting. The performance was held on two different nights and a clear gospel message was shared with the school families as well as the community.

Strong Tower's Spring Picnic is an annual event held in September (Spring in the Southern Hemisphere) when all the school families and staff come together for food, competition, and fun. This year was no exception where plenty of laughter and comradery was shared by all.


The assembly of the Lord's people in Pueblo Nuevo have a continued outreach in which twice a month one or more brothers and or sisters travels to the town of Pelingara. Since the beginning of this work, approximately 10 people have gotten saved and several more are studying the Word.
