Peru's Presidential Election


Peru's general election took place on Sunday, June 5.

Ollanta Humala, called by the news media "a left-leaning candidate", won the election over the more moderate Keiko Fujimori by less than 3%. His campaign rested on his promises to distribute wealth the Indian communities, the poorest of Peru's citizens. Though in recent weeks he promised opposition to socialism, in past years he has been very friendly with Hugo Chávez (the dictator of Venezuela).

At this time Peru has a measure of religious freedom. The country has the world's second fastest growing economy and the political climate has been increasingly stable for the last decade.

We are confident that God is in control and will continue to work His plan in Peru in spite of this election. Pray with us that God will grant us stability and continued freedom, politically and spiritually, as we seek to reach all those of Peru with the gospel. It is His work and He alone can accomplish it.
