As part of the expansion plan of the Mission in Peru members of the Mission traveled to the Departments of Loreto and San Martin located in the jungle to prepare the faithful for their personal Consecrations and to support Father Percy Pinedo Priest Parishioner of two mayor parishes in those departments. During the four-day trip three Sisters of the Passionist Congregation not only gave the members of the Mission a place to stay but they also supported them in all the activities.
Thursday December 7
The trip began on Thursday night with a very emotional meeting with the families of the Brave Heart Movement in the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, located in Cainarachi in the Department of San Martin. The parents of the youth of the Movement attended and were approximately between 80 and 100 persons. Some of the faithful took home Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe given by the Mission to be enthroned in their homes.
This meeting was held basically to reinforce and complete the work of preparation for Consecration that took place since the month of July. Some concepts where explained and some of the faithful gave their testimony of life changing by accepting God and Our Mother in their lives.
Friday December 8
The members of the Mission traveled to Pampa Hermosa located in the Department of Loreto to visit the Parish Our Lady of Guadalupe and its faithful. Here, the members of the Mission gave a talk to 60 young men and women between 16 and 23 years old that belong to the Brave Heart Movement. This talk was also a reinforcement for the Consecration that would take place the up coming Sunday December 10.
Saturday December 9
In the Convent of the Vicar of the Parish Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Mission prepared an all day retreat for the faithful. Approximately 49 Communities where invited and only 29 of them attended. These 29 Communities where represented by 40 people. The talks were divided in 4 explaining the Four Cornerstones of The Mission. It was important that the representatives/animators that attended understood everything because they would then go to their communities (in some cases as big as 100 people in each) and explain it to their members. This full day experience was very enriching for the animators (representatives of the Communities) because they opened their hearts and learned about God´s love and how to apply it to their daily life. This moment was useful for their personal preparation for their Consecration to the Two Hearts. At the end of the day, Father Percy, thanked The Mission and its members for support in bringing the Love of God to these Communities.
That same day, the members of the Mission returned to the department of San Martin to the Sacred Heart Parish for the Consecration of the Parish Territory and their faithful. The mass was celebrated by Father Percy Pinedo, who consecrated the Parish Territory and who guided 140 faithful and 47 children of the Brave Heart Movement, to consecrated themselves. This ceremony was very moving because it began with a procession of Our Lady of Guadalupe where the faithful brought Her flowers and prayed putting themselves at Her feet. They brought images of Our Lady to be blessed by Father Percy. That day, the Mission gave 60 Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe to be enthroned in their homes.
Finally, Father Percy Pinedo enthroned a relic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe given by The Mission in the Parish and named Her Patroness of Protector of that city.
Sunday December 10
That day, the Consecration of the Parish Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Pampa Hermosa, Loreto, took place. To this consecration the 49 animators of the Communities that where visited the day before participated. This Consecration was very important to them because after this alliance with Our Lord, they had to go back to their communities and testify to the Love of God and the Cornerstones of the Mission. Many of these animators had to walk for three days to arrive to the talk and the consecration.
160 faithful and 6 young men and women from the Brave Heart Movement consecrated themselves as well.
Father Percy enthroned a relic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in that Parish to be venerated by the faithful of that community.
Finally, that night, Father Percy invited the members of the Mission to a third Community near the zone called Alliance. This visit was requested so that the members of the mission could get to know the territory and the faithful and to study the possibility of offering the Mission´s help in this territory.
