Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Explore potential for Peru


On Sept. 19, your church group can meet Bishop Samuel Aguilar of the Methodist Church in Peru and missionary Dora Canales via a virtual mission encounter.

You are invited to be part of a mini-consultation with the two leaders, at 10 a.m. that Saturday in the new Kingswood Institute, which is located in OKC-Wesley United Methodist Church.

"We will hear what the bishop and Dora identify as some of the biggest hurdles facing the church in Peru; together, we will search for solutions along with our Latin American brothers and sisters based on dignity, justice, and mutual respect," said Karen Distefano, secretary of Global Ministries for the Oklahoma Conference.

Earlier this year, she attended a roundtable at which mission partners from around the world discussed ways to help the Peruvian church address its most urgent needs. Distefano said Oklahoma’s greatest asset for the work is its people.

She is joined by Lori Foster, coordinator of Oklahoma Volunteers In Mission, in hosting the mini-consultation.

Attend in person at the Kingswood Institute — Wesley church is at Classen and Northwest 25th — or be a virtual participant through GoToMeeting.
