Pastor Juan Tacsa has served as a church planter/pastor with Anchored in Truth Ministries for over 15 years. He serves in the mountains of Perú working with the Jaqaru people in the villages of Aiza, Tupe, and Colca. His ministry includes evangelism, teaching, preaching, and personal discipleship. He currently pastors the believers in these three villages while at the same time training up leaders from among them to continue the work in the future. Pastor Juan also serves the churches at the base of the mountains by providing teaching and discipleship. One of the special aspects of Pastor Juan's ministry is his ministry to the children in the villages where he serves. Pastor Juan devotes a lot of his time to teaching the young children God's word through Bible lessons and songs, planting the seeds of the Gospel in their hearts. Pastor Juan is married to his wife, Vivian, and they have a daughter named Damaris.

Update (April 2022):

Pastor Juan continues to minister in the mountain villages of Aiza and Tupe where he spends time discipling the believers and sharing the Gospel with the lost. He also frequently serves the church in the valley village of Canchan by teaching there when he passes through. An important part of his ministry is his work with the children in Aiza and Tupe. Pastor Juan asks for prayers for the church in Tupe as it is currently without a permanent meeting place. Please pray that God would provide a place for them soon. He also requests prayers for Sister Nemesis and her husband Gregorio who live in Aiza. Recently a Eucalyptis tree fell on their house, and they need to repair it. 

The Lord is continuing to build his church in the mountains of Peru. It is encouraging to see the faithful service of Brother Borja, a member of the Aiza community, who is being discipled by Juan and serving with him in the churches of Aiza and Tupe. Please continue to pray for Borja as he continues to serve the Lord alongside Pastor Juan. Please also continue to pray for the many children who are being regularly taught from God's word by Pastor Juan. Lastly, please continue to pray for the members of the churches in Aiza and Tupe that they would grow in their knowledge of Christ and in their obedience to him. 

As always, Pastor Juan sends many thanks to all the partners of AIT for their generous support of the Lord's work in the mountains of Peru.
