IRON RIVER—A presentation will be given along with a traditional Peruvian meal on Wednesday, Jan. 4, at 5:30 p.m. at Grace Covenant Church.
The presentation will be given by Abby Fish (daughter of Bill and Lynn Fish) who will be spending five months in Peru in the mission field with Inca Link International (March-July).
This will be Abby’s second short-term mission with Inca Link.
On Wednesday, she will prepare a traditional Peruvian meal and share a slide show from her previous trip as well as share her plans for this upcoming mission. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
Abby grew up in Iron River, recently graduated from North Park University with a degree in psychology and Spanish, and has been residing in Iron River this fall while substitute teaching at West Iron County Public Schools.
In 2010, she volunteered with Inca Link International for three months. This Christian organization is committed to raising young leaders in Latin America and reaching the 300 million youth of Latin America with Christ’s love.
Abby served with Inca Link in Trujillo, Peru, where she lead church groups from the U.S. and Canada in service projects and compassion ministries, such as building a home for abandoned children, running day care services for families in poverty and garbage dump ministries.
As Inca Link continues to expand, she is excited to rejoin the ministries by returning to Peru.
“Come to Grace to experience a taste of Peruvian food, Latin American culture, and mission work in South America,” said a spokesperson.
A free will offering will be taken in support of this mission effort.
