In June 2016, Ad Fontes sent its fifth missions team to our partner school, Refuge of Hope or Refugio de Esperanza, in Pucallpa, Peru. Additionally, our second alumni missions trip, led by Paula and Lauren Sloan (AFA ’13) served the Refuge! Over 25 students and adults built relationships with the students and resident adults, many with significant disabilities, while completing many work projects and leading vacation Bible School.
To support our students for the 2017 trip, click here to make a contribution. On the website form, you should check “Peru Mission Trip” as the Fund, and list the student’s name under the “gift in honor of” box.
Here is a note from our sister school: Many thanks to recent volunteers from Ad Fontes Academy in Centerville, Virginia, who traveled to Refugio de Esperanza, and poured their time, money, and plenty of sweat for a week of labor in the jungle heat. They painted, landscaped, built a roof, put up screens and telephone poles, spent time with students, and ministered to children in remote villages along the Ucayali River, a tributary of the Amazon River. The teachers and staff were grateful for the support of the volunteer team.
