Time Capsule Captures Moment

By Cherie Speller
From the Sunday, July 27, 2008, edition of The Daily Reflector

Turning Pisco Upside Down

by Tim Hall

Pisco Peru saintsPISCO, Peru (BNc)- A major earthquake struck portions of southern Peru on August 15, 2007. One of the hardest hit areas was the village of Pisco.

Most houses in that town were lost, and people’s lives were literally turned upside down.

Faculty and students from the Inter-American Biblical Institute worked quickly to take water, food and other relief supplies to Pisco. This school, located in Lima, has not been long in existence, but is already making a difference in the region. These Christians came to a town that had no congregation of Christ. Their plan was to bring spiritual relief, in addition to the physical necessities. Continue reading “Turning Pisco Upside Down”

When she refused, the teacher took the book from her saying she could have it back after school. The teacher gave the book back to her, but that night rioting broke out.
