Meet a Specific Need

Food distribution
Help those greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns in Peru, Uganda and Mexico.

Many have not been able to work and are in dire need of food and other essentials. CPI’s native missionaries on the field get the aid to the people in the greatest need. Here is what one of our co-workers told us in Peru: “The brothers and sisters who live in Nueva Era (Shipibo community) … they are suffering a lot from this coronavirus plague. They cannot go out to work. The sisters cannot sell their crafts to bring in bread for the table. Children cry from hunger and the same is happening in other Shipiibo communities. Many Sipiibos are also stranded in cities…Some were let go from their jobs…All this fills me with much sadness in my heart. I cry for these problems that we are going through…. Many families no longer have food and many no longer have money to buy medicine.”

Adopt a native missionary to a Huichol village in west-central Mexico.

CPI still needs about $95/month to complete the monthly support of Azucena ($250/month). Azucena is the widow of a Huichol pastor that unexpectedly died four years ago. Azucena has continued with the work in her husband’s absence, and plays a vital role in keeping the church together. Although she does not speak the Huichol language, Azucena uses interpreters (who speak Spanish), until a pastor can be found. This is the only Christian church in this entire region.

Provide a scholarship for a needy student at the new Word of Grace Training Center in Lima, Peru.

Some students, though called and gifted of the Lord, make only about $200/month and cannot afford to pay for training costing $450/year (nine months).

Provide Bibles and books for pastors

CPI distributes Bibles in various languages and quality Christian books to pastors in Peru, Mexico and Uganda. Many church members do not have Bibles and pastors cannot afford to buy books for study or training. Costs range from $3-10 dollars per Bible or book. Books for one training conference or retreat cost between $500-$1,000.

Provide a motorcycle for a Ugandan church planter

A motorcycle can make a huge impact in the ministries and family lives of pastors. Since church planters in Uganda have limited income, often they must walk a long distance or else pay for transportation in order to conduct an outreach in an un-churched village. A motorcycle helps a Ugandan church planter reach more communities for Christ. And since motorcycles are also used for taxi services or to transport products to market, pastors can also earn needed income for their families. CPI would like to provide motorcycles for two of our Ugandan co-workers costing $1,400 each.

Provide education for Ugandan children

A co-worker told me that three quarters of the children in Uganda are educated in private schools, because parents feel their children receive virtually no education in government schools. Pastors also care for many abandoned children. CPI is constantly being asked to help with school fees. For $70 a month you can send a child to private or Christian school in Uganda.

NOTE: Unless otherwise requested by the donor, 10 percent of each gift is used for CPI’s operating budget.
