Stewart and Katrina Stancil sold all their possessions in 2015 to go where God had opened the door, Cajamarca, Peru. Stewart was a landscape contractor and Katrina a bank manager before submitting to the call to, “Go and Make Disciples.”
In northern Peru, the Stancils have been showing the love of Jesus Christ and sharing the gospel with everyone that God leads them to. For the first year, they built a Bible College where locals could be trained in the Word of God. After this project was completed, the Stancils then began Bible Studies in a local gym and this grew into what is now Revolution Church, where Stewart pastors and Katrina heads up the administration of the church and volunteers.
Along with running a church, the Stancils also work with a local orphanage, bringing the children to church and youth group each week, have bible studies in the regional prison, visit villages outside of the city for prayer and preaching, visit the poor and provide food and help with medical needs, help with church builds within a 4 hour drive of Cajamarca, and support other agencies in their missions efforts, such as Shield of Faith Missions and World Wide Wells.
There is so much more to mention, but if you would like to know even more, please consider bringing your church group or just come alone on a short term mission to see first hand what God is doing in Peru!
Stewart and Katrina are now working in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Through researching the area, the Stancils learned that this area has an extremely low Christian population and borders on Unreached in many small towns in the interior section.
They are currently working with a local church in the Southern Cancun area leading Bible Studies and training Christians with the hope of starting church plant in the near future in a small town about 30 minutes outside the city in the next year. Future plans are for up to 8 church plants throughout the Northern Peninsula.
