MISSION STATEMENT

Quechua Benefit is an organization dedicated to helping the Quechua people in the highlands of Peru. Quechua Benefit and its volunteers deliver medical, dental and optical care; distribute warm clothing; provide shelter, food, and sociological services with an emphasis on children.

As a non denominational faith-based non-profit, Quechua Benefit strives to unite those who feel a call and have a heart to serve the poorest of the poor in Peru. The Quechua often believe that their spirituality and their physical well being are one. We tell our mission participants: “Do not be afraid to pray with those you come in contact with including patients.” Read more...

Merry Christmas from Quechua Benefit

We hope the Christmas message below will warm your Holidays!

Treasure on the Mountain

img158There is a cross high on a mountain along the Colca Valley in Peru. You can reach it by bus which will take you to the top of the mountain at 17,000 feet until you come to it on the other side…. sitting close to the top of the mountain at about 12,000 feet above sea level. I know it’s there, because I laid it out myself and left it there with your name on it. It’s made of rocks….the same kind of rocks that people have picked up for generations, building thousands of miles of terraces through time, even to today. The cross lies on the ground, and next to it, the word “Grace” fashioned with smaller rocks of the same kind. It was just about a week ago that I wrote the word made of rocks and I thought of all of you, how far away you were, and I longed to be back with you even as I was compelled to spell our name as an offering to God high up on that mountain. And I gave thanks for the privilege of doing so, even as I asked again in prayer to understand God’s purpose in bringing me to that place and why it had to be so hard.
