IMN Missionary to Peru
“O Lord, You are my God. I will praise You. I will give thanks to Your name. For You have been faithful to do great things, plans that You made long ago.”
Hi! My name is Mayra Duran, I’m 28 years old, and I’m a Guatemalan with a willing and obedient heart for missions. Currently, I’m living and working as a full-time missionary for mission El Faro in Izabal, Guatemala.
For the ones who don’t know, I started to volunteer at El Faro 8 years ago and so far, I’ve had the best time of my life. First, I started volunteering on the weekends for three years. After I had graduated as a psychologist, I decided to move to El Faro 5 years ago. Now, I’ve been working in different areas such as Kid’s Bible Club every Sunday, also in the Library where kids come to read and do homework, and the most SPECIAL area: Special Education Program where I work with deaf two students, physical therapy for two kids and one student for occupational therapy.
NEXT STEP… PERU!
This year I’m taking a new big step. In 2015, I went on a mission trip to Peru for one month, and part of my heart stayed there. Now, I have the chance to go once again but this time for longer. I’ll be moving to Peru for ONE YEAR!
• With Who?
I’ll be helping a missionary couple that has been working with a Peruvian tribe called Urarinas for more than nine years.
• What for?
This missionary couple will start a middle school for the tribe. I’ll be supporting them as a teacher, and also I want to start a bible kids’ club.
I’ll be living in Iquitos, Peru and staying there part of the time but I also will be traveling by boat along the Marañon River (mainstem source of the Amazon River).
I’m heading to Perú in September 2017 and planning to stay for one year.
THANK YOU FOR being part,
your prayers, your interest, and help!
