Peter and Gretchen Beck
Serving with Mission to the World in Atlanta
Peter and Gretchen worshipped with Cornerstone for several years. Today, they minister in Cusco, Peru. Cusco is located in an area where the ancient Incan civilization once reigned. The Becks write: “In a city where God has been forsaken by those who were created for His praise, where broken promises by leaders of the country have left a people in ruin, where the gods of the moon and sun are worshipped, we have had the privilege of proclaiming the Word made flesh.” They are planting a church in Cusco.

Metro Area. Fulaa seeks to meet both immediate, material needs and deeper, spiritual and emotional needs.
