Missions and Peru’s Journey to the World Cup

Jennifer Waldrep writes from Peru, “This concept of a few nations with fancy resources being the players and the rest of the world being the mission field is as outdated as colonialism.” She quotes a man named Alfaro:

We Peruvians never had the idea that the one to bring the gospel would be a national…Rather a . . . European or American missionary—all the more if it were a white person. There was the idea that the privilege of bringing the gospel belonged to white people. This concept came from generations back—from our ancestors. Missions always was foreign. It came from elsewhere.
