In central Peru on the banks of the Ucayali River lies a town called Pucallpa, a city that 310,000 people call home. It’s not a tourist town. In fact, most people you see arriving by plane are doctors, nurses and other health care personnel. That’s because Pucallpa has limited medical services, but draws people in from the Amazon basin looking for basic health care.
AdventHealth Global Missions has partnered with the Eastern Peruvian Mission of Seventh-day Adventists to extend the healing ministry of Christ in Pucallpa. Fourteen team members from AdventHealth in Kansas and Florida recently traveled to the city to nurture the health of those living in the region.
