The Mission Society

"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
-Romans 10:13-15 (NIV)

   We are the Goshorn family - Tim, Jennifer, Daniel, Matthew, and Katherine. We are missionaries in Huancayo, Peru, which is about 12,000 ft. up in the Andes Mountains. We've spent several years in training with The Mission Society. This included training on Philosophy of Missions, Cross Cultural Training, Culture Shock, Mission Shock, Core Ministry Strategies, Spiritual Warfare and World Religions. We also had a 15 week course on missions called Perspectives, and 5 weeks at Missions Training International, in Colorado. Our last step was one year of language school, which we completed in Costa Rica.

   We arrived in Peru in March of 2014, and some everyday things that we face are learning the culture and building relationships. We have several ministries going, just click on the Our Ministries tab to find out more on this. We have also built a Peruvian team that is active serving the Kingdom with us.

   People ask us what we do in Peru, and the honest answer is that we share Christ. There are many ways of doing this, and we have many plans. But, through this whole process we've learned that when we have plans, many times, God's are different and always better. We will be obedient to God's calling and follow where He leads us. We know there will be many challenges to face, but we also know the Holy Spirit will guide us. Only through the Holy Spirit, God's kingdom will be glorified.     

   We are still in need of partners to join us in Peru. Just click the Partner with us tab to find out how. When we partner with a church or individuals financially, we, as good stewards, will provide the following: newsletters and updates (as long as internet is available), a website with current info, photos and videos, in addition to visits when we are back in the States.  As we partner with churches and individuals we are carrying out what Paul talks about in 1 Corinthians 12, followers of Jesus being one body working together. We are one body, when someone supports us they are working with us in Peru. They are carrying out The Great Commission. God has not called everyone to “Go”, but He expects all of us to be a part of missions.
