The arrest of a young man who had been attending Christ the Redeemer Church in Lima, Peru, ended up leading to a weekly ministry to other young offenders. Latin/Timothy mission partner Anderson Sanchez, pastor of Christ the Redeemer, explains: ‘Alexis is 17 and a member of our church. He was invited to a party where there were under age girls. He got caught and was sentenced to 40 days in a young offenders’ unit.’ While in the unit, Alexis repented of his behaviour, saying he’d learned his lesson and he was released early. ‘Since then, with our support, Alexis has matured, he has a job and has kept away from the crowd he was spending time with before,’ said Anderson. Now, due to this unexpected connection, the church has a weekly ministry with the teenagers in the offenders’ unit,’ says Anderson.
